Two Birds, One Stone: Rhinoplasty & Septoplasty

The nose is a defining feature of the face, yet it is delicate and susceptible to damage. Rhinoplasty in Los Angeles meets the needs of those who desire to redefine their profile, bring symmetry to their face, or repair the damage done by a broken nasal bone.

In addition to being delicate, the nose also carries the partial responsibility of providing a passageway for air into the body. This combination of delicacy and necessity can create quite a conundrum for those with a deviated septum or dilapidated nasal bones. Not only can a deviated septum impair one’s breathing, and cause continuous stuffiness and a drippy nose, but it can also affect the appearance of the bridge of their nose and nostrils. Septoplasty is the method used to repair a deviated septum.

Often times, those seeking reconstructive nasal surgery to repair a deviated septum also want to amend the shape and contour of their nose. Fortunately, rhinoplasty and septoplasty can be performed simultaneously, reducing the number of surgeries, recovery time, and cost that each procedure requires.

Dr. Mark Youssef, of YOUnique Cosmetic Surgery, has been deftly performing rhinoplasty surgeries in Los Angeles for many years. Dr. Youssef not only creates flawless profiles for his patients, but also is able to bring symmetry to the nasal bridge, and nostrils through rhinoplasty. Dr. Youssef can also perform a septum-repairing procedure during a reconstructive nasal surgery to correct a deviated septum, trauma, or birth defects. This is usually done by realigning bones in the nose and, if needed, reducing bumps from the nasal bridge.

Rhinoplasty will not only improve the way those with a deviated septum look, but also the way they feel every single day.
