Functional Nasal Surgery
Modern nasal surgery techniques can be used to improve the functional aspects of the nose and sinuses. The goal of such surgery is as varied as creating better nasal airflow or drainage of the sinuses. You can learn more about the many aspects of Functional Rhinoplasty and nasal surgery here.
- SeptoplastySeptoplasty, the surgical treatment of a crooked or deviated nasal septum, is one of the cornerstones in improving functional breathing issues.
- Turbinate reductionThe nasal turbinates are out-pouchings of tissue that come off of the side of the nasal cavity and act as the radiator of the nose.
- Sinus SurgeryChronic sinus infections can take a lot out of you. From chronic facial pain and headaches to missed work or school persistent sinusitis can have an enormous toll on your quality of life.
- Balloon SinuplastyBalloon sinuplasty (also known as BSP or balloon sinus-plasty) is a safe and effective method of treating chronic sinusitis using a small, flexible balloon catheter to dilate narrowed sinus openings.
- Broken Nose RepairMany of us sustain relatively minor The Boxer detail with broken nose. Photo courtesy of Frederique Harmszeto our nose without suffering any major problems.
- Surgical Breathe Right StripsMany people with chronic nasal blockage find that they can improve their nasal airflow by wearing Breathe Right Strips.
- Alar batten graftsAlar batten grafts are thin, oval shaped cartilage grafts that are placed along the nasal sidewall in the area of the supra-alar crease or area of lateral wall weakness.
- Spreader graftsSee how spreader grafts can be used to improve internal nasal valve narrowing and treat chronic nasal congestion without needing a breathe right strip.
- Lower lateral cartilage strut graftingA very powerful method of enhancing tip shape, support and function is by using lower lateral crural (LLC) strut grafts.
- Lower lateral cartilage repositioningSee how lower lateral cartilage repositioning can be used to repair external valve collapse, tip pinching, alar retraction and nasal congestion.
