Cosmetic vs. Functional Rhinoplasty
During a functional rhinoplasty, the cartilage of your nostrils are repaired and any structural defects that block their airway are resolved so that you can breathe better.
Cosmetic rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is specifically designed to improve your appearance. It involves reshaping the nose to make it more symmetrical and proportional to the other features of your face. Dr. Schalit specializes in both cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty.
During a consultation, Dr. Schalit will evaluate your nose and discuss your medical condition with you. If he believes that a rhinoplasty can help, he’ll educate you on the procedure and recovery process so you can decide whether or not you’d like to move forward.
