This is a gentleman that was having problems breathing through his nose. His nose had also been broken. He had a dorsal hump on the nose and the tip tended to droop. He underwent a rhinoplasty with septoplasty. His nose now looks better and he is breathing much better. Insurance will often pay a good portion of these procedures if is medically necessary to help improve breathing.
This is a 40 YO lady who desires some cosmetic improvement of her nose. When I examine her nose, she has a small hump on the top of the nose. Also, the nose droops just a little. She underwent a rhinoplasty. We took down the hump of her nose and tipped the nose up. People look younger when their nose is tipped up some. As you age, your nose tends to droop. At the same time, we also improved her breathing. Since she was having breathing problems prior to surgery, insurance paid a good portion of this procedure.
