What Other Conditions Can Rhinoplasty Treat?

If you are in good health, rhinoplasty can be performed in conjunction with a face-lift or other rejuvenation surgeries to correct changes of the nose due to aging such as a drooping tip. Some breathing problems related to internal nasal structures also can be corrected at the time of surgery. Typically, the entire nose reshaping surgery is done through tiny incisions within the nostrils eliminating additional scaring.

What is Deviated Septum Surgery?

Deviated septum surgery is the most common rhinoplasty treatment. A vast majority of people have some degree of deviation but, in many of these cases, no surgery is needed at all. Yet, in some instances, a deviated septum can create breathing issues that may result in serious health complications (like sleep apnea). In these cases, rhinoplasty is a must.

Is There An Age Limit For Rhinoplasty?

People of all ages are unhappy with the appearance of their nose and have reshaping surgery. The minimum recommended age for rhinoplasty is 15 years, and may be higher for boys. There is no upper age limit for rhinoplasty.

Are There Any Risks When Considering A Nose Job?

Each and every surgical intervention bears some risk of complications and deviated septum surgery is no different. In general, you have minimal risks of bleeding, infection, and your body may not react well to anesthesia. All of these risks are very small and if the procedure is done correctly, you shouldn’t expect to see any of them.

In any case, the number of benefits greatly exceeds the number of risks. So, if for whatever reason you need a nose job, you should do it as early as possible.
