Medical Reasons to Get Rhinoplasty


Humans smell from their nose, but that isn’t the only function of a nose. The most important thing for a living being is being able to breathe and that’s the basic function of a nose. So, if the nose isn’t fully functional, it can create breathing problems for a person. Instead of living with breathing problems, people can get the problem fixed with the help of rhinoplasty, which is commonly referred to as a nose job. Although most people think of rhinoplasty as a cosmetic surgery, it is more often needed because of medical reasons.

Structural Abnormalities

If a person gets into an accident, their bones can suffer from structural abnormalities. In such a situation, surgery is often the only solution. So, if the nose of a person develops structural abnormalities because of an accident, they will have to get rhinoplasty. A nose is a complex body part, which is why it can only be fixed by experienced surgeons. So, it is important to find the right rhinoplasty clinic (called คลินิกเสริมจมูก in Thai) to get structural abnormalities in your nose fixed. It is also important not to ignore abnormalities in your nose caused by an accident if you don’t want to suffer from health problems.

Sinus Problems

Another medical reason to get rhinoplasty is to get rid of sinus problems. A deviated nasal septum can cause breathing problems, which in turn can affect the sinuses. A functional rhinoplasty can fix the deviated nasal septum to resolve the breathing issues. Functional rhinoplasty is not always combined with cosmetic enhancement but it does affect the shape of a nose.

Most people require functional rhinoplasty in their later lives as nasal valves tend to collapse with age. But once they are fixed with surgery, a person can live their life without sinus problems.

Facial Reconstruction

In case of severe facial burns, facial reconstruction becomes necessary. A facial reconstruction surgery would be incomplete without rhinoplasty. With rhinoplasty, the nose can also be reconstructed so the person doesn’t have to face any breathing problems. Issues with the nose’s structure can also be fixed in a reconstruction surgery.

Sleep Apnoea

Sleep apnoea can make it impossible for people to sleep peacefully. But if it is caused by a structural issue then it can be fixed with rhinoplasty. In some cases, even snoring can be reduced with rhinoplasty. In short, rhinoplasty can truly change the life of a person.
