The Importance Of Functional Rhinoplasty And Breathing Well

There are many people who don't breathe well but don't know it. They have become so accustomed to that deficiency that they are unaware that they have this problem. The breathing is an involuntary biological function we perform instinctively but must be done correctly because otherwise it can cause us many health problems such as fatigue, anxiety, digestive disorders and decreased athletic performance, and although we are aware that we are breathing badly, we have to find out if this is so before we have major health problems. Functional rhinoplasty gives us the solution to this uncomfortable problem.

There are several reasons why this bad breath occurs: they can be due to a deviated nasal septum, turbinate hypertrophies, insufficiency of the internal nasal valve, a sequel after multiple fracture factors that prevent us from correctly doing this vital function for our health.

It is advisable to go to a specialist to discuss our breathing problems, and they will give us the solution to our problem. In these cases, the intervention that is performed is functional rhinoplasty.

Depending on the type of injury the patient has, this type of surgery will be performed, but in one way or another: for example, if it is a sequel to a fracture, the nasal bones are reconstructed and fixed; or if it is an insufficiency of the internal nasal valve, a reconstruction is performed with grafts, or if it is a deviated nasal septum, what is done is a septoplasty. All these interventions are part of Functional Rhinoplasty, whose main objective is to improve nasal breathing.

With this surgery, we can improve respiratory function, correct congenital or acquired deformities, and repair nasal lesions or tumors.

On many occasions, there is the possibility of improving aesthetics in this same operation whose main objective is to improve respiratory problems. Breathing badly is a big problem, and that is why this functional rhinoplasty is specified for those patients who suffer from ventilatory failure. In addition, there are options to improve the functional part and also the aesthetic part of a single intervention. The advice of an expert surgeon is essential to discover what happens to us and possible solutions.

In this type of intervention, an open rhinoplasty is always performed, which requires an incision to be made in the central part of the nose, in the separation between the nostrils to directly access the bones and cartilage. Furthermore, with this type of functional rhinoplasty, solutions to the most serious problems in this area are achieved.

The usual thing is that in approximately two weeks, the patient is very well and notices the improvements in his breathing, and therefore sees his health improved as well.
