Nose surgery in Perth
What is rhinoplasty surgery for?
Undergoing rhinoplasty surgery is not solely for aesthetic purposes. Sometimes, patients with congenital disabilities or injuries from accident or trauma have functional problems associated with their breathing. Rhinoplasty reconstructs and reshapes the nose so that its look and function improve. It can also address some medical-related conditions regarding sleeping and breathing that are associated with the nose, like sleep apnoea, sinus problems, polyps, and sleep disturbances (snoring). This makes rhinoplasty one of the few cosmetic surgery procedures that solve aesthetic and functional problems alike.
What are other forms of nose surgery in Perth?
We may think that a nose job is just rhinoplasty on its own. But as a matter of fact, there are different surgical treatments that can be performed on the nose depending on your problem and need.
- Septoplasty is functional surgery that treats problems with the wall that divides the nostrils called the nasal septum. Deviated septum and trauma are the common causes of these problems.
- Turbinoplasty or turbinectomy is a common nose surgery in Perth that involves repositioning or reshaping the turbinates (structures that warm the air we breathe) to avoid nasal congestion and breathing difficulty.
- Alarplasty or alar base reduction is purely a cosmetic nose surgery that narrows out and reshapes the nostrils to avoid having a “flared-up” nose look.
