A Nose Job for Better Health! - Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center

A Nose Job for Better Health!

When you think of a nose job (or “rhinoplasty”), you probably think of it as a cosmetic procedure. However, rhinoplasty can also be an important step towards improving your health and your quality of life. 

What happens during rhinoplasty?

Before your nose job, you will, of course, meet with your plastic surgeon to tell him or her what changes you would like to see. The plastic surgeon will develop a plan just for you so that you can see these results. 

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure. The surgeon will change the size and shape of your nose by adjusting, removing, or adding bone and cartilage.   

How can rhinoplasty help health problems?

A bent or crooked septum (the “wall” between the two sides of the nose) or blockage in the nasal passages can cause both breathing and sleep problems. One sleep issue that may arise is sleep apnea, a serious condition in which the patient stops breathing over and over again throughout the night. This can cause the patient to wake up over and over again, as the body tries to get regular breathing started again. The patient may not even realize they are waking up throughout the night – they just know they are tired all the time. Over years of living with sleep apnea, serious health problems can result. 

Snoring is another sleep problem (for you and perhaps your family members who are kept awake because of it!). Rhinoplasty can be used to remove or adjust cartilage in the nose or to straighten the septum to help stop snoring (however, you should be aware that obesity, asthma, or allergies can also cause snoring, and rhinoplasty won’t help if one of these is the cause of your snoring). 

Rhinoplasty is a great way to change your appearance – after all, the shape and the size of the nose can affect how the entire face looks. But it can also help to improve your breathing, your sleep, and your health. Whether you are considering a nose job for cosmetic or medical reasons, Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, can help. Call (908) 879-2222 for an appointment today!
