During functional rhinoplasty surgery the problems that make it difficult to breathe in the nose are corrected together with rhinoplasty surgery. The patient needs functional rhinoplasty surgery not only for visual acuity, but also to be able to breathe comfortably through the nose. In cases such as bone cartilage curvatures in the nose, nasal flesh growths, narrow middle roof of the nasal ridge, rhinoplasty procedures are performed, and such problems that cause nasal congestion are also corrected. In short, patients achieve more beautiful results both in terms of breathing and aesthetically.
The middle wall of the nose, which divides the nasal cavity into two, is called the septum. The middle wall of the nose consists of a cartilage and two bones. The middle wall of the nose, along with all the structures of the nose, begins to develop in the womb, and this development lasts until the age of 17-18 years. After this age, the growth of the nose is considered to have stopped. The middle wall of the nose can tilt in both directions, sometimes to the right or left during the development process or due to blows. This condition is medically called septum deviation and makes the nose stuffy. Apart from nasal congestion, it can cause nosebleeds, recurrent sinusitis attacks, facial pain and headache. The treatment of this curvature in the nose is possible with nose surgery. Before septoplasty surgery is performed, other causes are investigated, such as the growth of nasal flesh in the nose, which can cause nasal congestion. In nasal congestion surgery, septoplasty (correction of the curvature in the nose) is usually performed together with the reduction of the nasal flesh. More beautiful breathing noses are obtained.
INFERIOR TURBINATE REDUCTION
There are a total of 6 pieces of nasal flesh in the nose, three on the right and three on the left. The flesh of the nose is medically called turbinate. These nasal meats, which we call turbinates, warm the air, moisturize it, clean it from germs and allow us to get better air. However, when these nasal gums grow, they can narrow the nasal passage and cause nasal congestion. In nasal congestion surgeries, the reduction of large nasal flesh (turbinate hypertrophy) is often performed. If any, the curvatures in the nose are corrected in the same session.
