Will Rhinoplasty Correct My Breathing Problems?

If you have breathing problems, rhinoplasty can help. Dr. Sajjadian is skilled in performing both cosmetic rhinoplasties and nasal obstruction correction surgeries. Aesthetic changes and functional changes can often be made in the same surgery. Some signs that you have may have a nasal obstruction include:

  • Breathing Problems
  • Headaches
  • Nosebleeds
  • Sinus Infections
  • Occasional Symptomatic Worsening of Allergies
  • Mouth breathing
  • Snoring

Correcting nasal obstructions can help you breathe more effectively and increase health and well-being.

I’m from a Non-Caucasian Background. Am I a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

No matter your ethnicity, rhinoplasty can be an effective way to improve your appearance and your breathing function. If you’re of a non-Caucasian background, choosing your surgeon carefully is even more important. Ethnic noses tend to have a different overall structure than Caucasian noses. A surgeon who isn’t skilled in performing ethnic rhinoplasty can cause permanent damage to the nose. The end result should help your nose come into balance with your other facial features. Dr. Sajjadian has extensive experience performing ethnic rhinoplasties and will use his surgical expertise and artistic eye to create a beautiful, functional, balanced nose.
