The overall goal of a rhinoplasty procedure is to provide a natural, aesthetically appealing nose that functions well. This young woman came to Dr. Angela Sturm looking for both functional and cosmetic improvement of her nose, specifically improved breathing and a straighter nasal profile.
Over the years, she had experienced multiple occasions of nasal trauma, resulting in nasal obstruction and septal deviation. Complications from nasal trauma include breathing issues, sinus trouble, and a crooked or otherwise altered appearance of the nose.
To address her concerns, this patient underwent a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, turbinate reduction and repair of nasal vestibular stenosis with Dr. Sturm. Three months following her surgery, she is breathing much better, her nasal dorsum is straight, and she is very happy!
