If you struggle with breathing problems such as snoring, it can be frustrating, robbing you and your partner of a good night’s sleep. What you might not be aware of is the fact that your snoring could indicate a serious, underlying health problem. You could be struggling with sleep apnea – a disorder that causes your airways to be obstructed while you’re sleeping – cutting off your vital oxygen supply.

If you find yourself battling with fatigue, have difficulty concentrating, and you are struggling with weight gain, it could all be tied in with your breathing. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to an increased risk of stroke and heart attack. Fortunately, options are available to deal with your breathing problems and rhinoplasty may be the solution you need.

Rhinoplasty is More than a Cosmetic Fix

While many people choose rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons, the procedure could resolve your difficulties with breathing, especially if you are struggling to get an adequate amount of rest at night. You may be dealing with a deviated septum in which the cartilage in your nose is not lined up properly, resulting in a blockage.

Structural issues with your nose are often at the root of breathing disorders that could have a major impact on your well-being. Correct the problem with your nose through rhinoplasty and you will not believe the difference it can make. You can breathe easily while you are at rest, during strenuous exercise, and throughout your day. Rhinoplasty can truly improve your quality of life when you clear your nasal passages and breathe freely.

What to Expect during Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis unless you have a health concern that may require overnight monitoring. You will be given anesthesia before your procedure. Your plastic surgeon will determine whether a local anesthetic or general anesthesia is best for you. From that point, your surgeon will make tiny incisions inside your nose or at the base of your nose to correct the problem with your nose. Adjustments may be made to the cartilage and the bone in the nose.
