Septoplasty Surgery – Impaired Breathing San Francisco

Are you experiencing impaired breathing? This and other nasal issues can often be solved with the aid of functional rhinoplasty. One of the main types of functional rhinoplasty is septoplasty surgery.

The septum, made up of cartilage and bone, is a central structure in the nose. With septoplasty surgery, a patient can have fractures in their nasal septum repaired. These may have resulted from a nasal trauma. Septoplasty can also be used to rid the nasal passages of small spurs or to straighten a crooked septum.

Closed Rhinoplasty Technique – San Francisco Nose Job

Are you considering nasal surgery to correct an aesthetic or functional issue with your nose? Your surgeon may judge that the closed rhinoplasty technique is the right option for your rhinoplasty procedure.

The closed rhinoplasty technique, which involves internal incisions as opposed to an external one, typically works best for alterations to the nasal bridge. When it comes to alterations to the tip of the nose, you will likely be better served with an open rhinoplasty approach.
