Are you having trouble breathing through your nose? Typically, functional rhinoplasty surgery is necessary when the internal nasal valves have issues that cause breathing problems. Functional rhinoplasty surgery is used to solve breathing problems and restore functionality to the nose.
When the internal valves are narrower and tighter than they should be, this is considered a static obstruction, meaning one that does not move or change.
When the nasal cartilage is weakened, collapse can occur as part of breathing. This is considered a dynamic obstruction, meaning one that moves and changes.
If you’re dealing with either of these types of nasal issues, functional rhinoplasty surgery may be right for you.
