Rhinoplasty to improve breathing

If you want to improve the appearance of your nose, don't forget the functional importance of your nose and the impact that breathing well has on your quality of life. In addition to playing an aesthetic role in the centre of the face, the nose plays an important role that affects our daily lives.

We all want to breathe through our nose, and that's because proper nasal ventilation is directly related to a sense of well-being.

Today's understanding of rhinoplasty does not separate aesthetic and functional considerations; therefore, a detailed diagnosis and a successful surgical strategy are crucial in integrating both aspects effectively.

As specialists in otorhinolaryngology and cervicofacial surgery, nasal functionality is paramount in all our rhinoplasties.


Rhinoplasty and nasal function

The nose serves as the olfactory organ and functions as the primary pathway for air to enter and exit the lungs. It plays a role in warming, moistening, and purifying the air before it reaches the lungs.

Respiratory function is intricately linked to two factors, specifically the interaction between the nasal mucosa and the various structures comprising the nasal pyramid.

Nasal obstruction surgery aims to correct both of these factors.


Which factors regulate nasal ventilation?

Static factors, which remain constant, interplay with nasal respiratory function, along with dynamic factors that fluctuate over time, primarily involving the mobility of the nasal wings and nasal valve, as well as vasomotor phenomena

In the context of these vasomotor phenomena, the nasal turbinates play a crucial role in regulating the conditioning of inhaled air through processes such as filtering, heating, and humidifying.


Causes of nasal respiratory insufficiency

Anatomical abnormalities

• Deviation of the septum
• Hypertrophy of turbinates
• Valvular collapse
• Perforated septum

Mucosal diseases

• Allergic rhinitis
• Non-allergic eosinophilic rhinitis
• Vasomotor rhinitis
• Chronic hypertrophic rhinitis

Tumours / Others
