Before   After

Internal problems with the structure of the nose can create difficulties for breathing and even speaking. This 37 year-old Emergency Medical Technician from New York was experiencing breathing problems caused by a deviated septum that obstructed airflow through her nose. This patient also had a long-standing desire to have a softer, more delicate-looking nose, and decided to meet with a surgeon at Profiles & Contours to find out how a rhinoplasty could meet both of these goals. To achieve both a functional and cosmetic improvement, her surgeon recommended that this patient undergo a combination septoplasty and rhinoplasty in New York.

A septoplasty improves airflow through the nose by straightening a deviated septum. Her surgeon also performed a closed rhinoplasty to reduce the width of her nasal bones, narrow her nasal tip and minimize the appearance of her overly prominent nasal "bump." Like this patient, many Profiles & Contours clients choose to combine their septoplasty with a rhinoplasty in order to create a more symmetrical appearance and, most importantly, improve their quality of life.

Since her combined septoplasty and rhinoplasty procedure, this patient has noticed significant changes in how her nose looks and functions. Even small improvements to breathing can make simple activities like sleeping and exercising much easier, and the straighter, smoother shape of her nose helps soften and harmonize her facial features. This patient is very happy with the results of her plastic surgery in New York.
