While many seek rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons, functional rhinoplasty focuses on improving the function of the nose rather than its appearance. Functional rhinoplasty is recommended for individuals with nasal abnormalities that cause discomfort or breathing problems. Dr. Lalezar offers personalized functional rhinoplasty in NYC to improve breathing and correct functional problems.
Correct Functional Nose Problems
Functional rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to correct nasal abnormalities that are causing functional problems. These abnormalities can include a deviated septum, a condition where the partition between the nostrils is crooked or off-center, or nasal polyps, which are benign growths that can obstruct the airways. The primary goal of functional rhinoplasty is to improve the function of the nose and ease breathing problems.
The Goals of Functional Rhinoplasty:
- Improving the overall function of the nose
- Addressing the structural abnormalities responsible for your functional issues
- Improving overall breathing and speech comfort
- Correcting nasal congestion, sinus infections, dry mouth, and other symptoms of nasal abnormalities
