Septorhinoplasty

Septorhinoplasty is a kind of nose surgery. When the nose shape is changing all the face appearance is changing. Being an important breathing organ, the nose also plays a big role in aesthetic appearance. Due to some accidents or natural shape structure many people have a breathing problem. There is a surgery called septoplasty. That surgery corrects the septum so the patient is able to breathe normally. But what to do if you both have aesthetic and breathing problems with your nose?

Many people know about rhinoplasty, however this surgery does not solve the breathing problems.

In that case septorhinoplasty turkey will be very helpful. Now you do not need to have two surgeries separately. During one surgery your septum can be fixed and the shape of nose can also be corrected. In the presence of an external defect, septoplasty (breathing function correction surgery) is recommended to be performed simultaneously with aesthetic correction. This is explained by the fact that deformations of the nasal skeleton affect the healing of septum tissues after it is straightened and can worsen the final result. The opposite is also true – if there is a curvature of the septum, along with aesthetic rhinoplasty, it is necessary to perform septoplasty, since otherwise the risk of repeated curvature increases.
