Health Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Many patients seeking rhinoplasty have associated obstructive breathing symptoms arising from the nasal airway. A deviated nasal septum or enlargement of turbinates (the structures inside the nasal cavity that help humidify inhaled air) are often the cause of such symptoms. A functional rhinoplasty can address these symptoms and, ultimately, improve the patient’s quality of life.
There are other health benefits associated with rhinoplasty to improve breathing function, including a higher tolerance for exercise, less snoring/better quality of sleep, and fewer headaches.
In addition to these benefits, Nannette says she is also enjoying a better sense of smell after her functional rhinoplasty procedure.
“I can smell everything,” she says with a laugh. “Everything is so enhanced. I can’t explain the feeling. You just gotta do it.”
