Nose Job Questions: Will A Rhinoplasty Fix A Deviated Septum?

By | Rhinoplasty | No Comments
A nose job, or rhinoplasty plastic surgery, can correct many cosmetic concerns with the nose. For example, if a patient does not like the appearance of their dorsal bump, the wideness of their nose, or the overall shape of the nose, a surgical rhinoplasty can address these issues. A non-surgical rhinoplasty is also an option for certain concerns. However, will a rhinoplasty fix a deviated septum?   A nose job can also correct many medical and structural problems with the nose. While a full scale rhinoplasty is not always necessary to correct structural issues, these can be corrected during a routine nose job.    One of the most common structural deformities of the nose is a deviated septum. A deviated septum is when the wall separating your nasal passages is more to one side than the other. In some cases, this causes no symptoms or issues. For others though, this can cause major breathing issues and contribute to conditions like allergies and sleep apnea. So, will a rhinoplasty fix a deviated septum.    The answer is usually, yes! A septoplasty is the surgical procedure that corrects a deviated septum. Dr. Jonov can perform a septoplasty as part of a rhinoplasty procedure.

The Importance Of Nasal Irrigation

By | PSA, Rhinoplasty | No Comments
Nasal irrigation is a common practice for preventing and treating sinusitis, colds, and other related nasal problems. Regularly practicing nasal irrigation can help clear your sinuses and prevent infection, especially during allergy and cold seasons.  There are a variety of methods used to clean the sinuses and nasal passages. Saline sprays, neti pots, or more complex devices are all commonly used for irrigating the nose and sinuses. It is important to note that when using a neti pot or other at-home equipment you use it correctly and only with sterile water. Using tap water for nasal irrigation can increase the risk of infection. Though it may work, it is not worth the extra risk. When it comes to cosmetic surgery, we recommend nasal irrigation after rhinoplasty procedures to help clear nasal passages of blood and mucus. This helps prevent infection and keeps the areas clean. Again, the importance of using sterile water is imperative for safe and effective healing.
