Background: functional rhinoplasty is surgery to enhance the function of the nose.
Nasal Evaluation: Trauma and/or variations in natural nasal anatomy can lead to anatomic issues causing obstruction.
Pre-op Considerations: rhinoplasty surgery has risks and benefits like any surgery. Please see below for specifics.
Surgical Details: rhinoplasty surgery can be done through incisions inside the nose, at times requires an external incision between the nostrils depending on the severity of the problem.
Post-op Care: recovery after rhinoplasty is typically one week off work, followed by another week of decreased activity.
