What is a rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed to change the shape and internal structure of the nose. It can be performed for cosmetic reasons as well as to correct breathing issues.
Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
Most patients that undergo a rhinoplasty are unhappy with the physical appearance of their nose and wish to change it. In some cases, a patient might choose to undergo a rhinoplasty to correct a misshapen nose that resulted from a nose injury. When performed in combination with a septoplasty, a rhinoplasty can accomplish both aesthetic and functional goals at the same time.
A nose job might accompany a sinus procedure if you are seeking to address the following with surgery:
- Improve or enhance the appearance of the nose
- Achieve better balance of your facial features
- Address an injury that you received in the past and never corrected (e.g., football or wrestling injury to nose which caused the shape of your nose to change permanently)
- Correct a deviated septum that is causing breathing issues or recurring sinus problems, such as chronic sinusitis
A deviated septum is one of the most common causes of breathing impairment. Through corrective surgery, which involves a restructuring and realigning of the nasal passages, many patients find permanent relief from unpleasant symptoms.
Benefits of combining sinus surgery with rhinoplasty
- Only go under anesthesia one time and for a shorter amount of time in total than if you had the procedures separately
- More discreetly recover from the rhinoplasty since you are having sinus surgery at the same time
- Combine downtime into one recovery period

What does a rhinoplasty involve?
During a rhinoplasty and septoplasty combined procedure, the goal of the surgery is to improve breathing function in addition to the physical appearance of the nose. In order to achieve structural improvement, the process begins with a careful evaluation of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing.
There are two types of rhinoplasty that Dr. Yeung can perform, depending on your needs. Open rhinoplasty involves a small incision being made under the tip of the nose. Closed rhinoplasty involves no incisions being made on the skin outside of the nose, as the entire procedure is performed within the nostrils.
During a rhinoplasty, the nasal cartilage and bones are modified and tissue is added (as needed) to improve the visual appearance of the nose. A revision rhinoplasty is more complicated and can include a cartilage graft for the internal structure if an insufficient amount of cartilage is present.
