Chronic sinusitis is a common complaint among Washington DC rhinoplasty patients, who want to breath and look better. Washingtonians suffer from chronic nasal allergies with a variety of symptoms such as nasal congestion and recurrent sinusitis. These patients often benefit from sinus surgery to improve their allergy symptoms, but also want the nose to look better too with rhinoplasty.

This young woman had considered rhinoplasty surgery since a teenager. She wanted to improve asymmetry, reduce a bump, and reduce an overprojecting nasal tip. She consulted with various rhinoplasty surgery specialists and chose facial plastic surgeon Dr. Chaboki for his expertise. Examination revealed bony and cartilaginous irregularity of the bridge under thin skin. She had a "low radix" and a bump on profile view. A deviated septum is also present, as can been seen from the base view. CT scan before surgery revealed narrow sinus passages and concha bullosa (large middle turbinate).

She underwent an endonasal rhinoplasty, also known as a "closed rhinoplasty". This rhinoplasty approach avoids an external scar between the nostrils. In addition, she underwent endoscopic sinus surgery, septoplasty, and turbinate reduction to open the nasal passages and reduce her chronic sinus symptoms. 

For the cosmetic rhinoplasty, Dr. Chaboki used her own cartilage from the nasal septum to improve the profile with a radix graft. Cartilage grafts are often used in rhinoplasty, and typically taken from the nasal septum. For this patient, osteotomies (i.e. bone reshaping) were performed as part of improving asymmetry, narrowing the bridge width, and reducing the nasal bump.

Postoperative photographs are approximately three months after endonasal rhinoplasty, which demonstrate her subtle, natural improvement. The nose continues to become more refined with time as nasal swelling gradually resolves over several months, especially at the bridge in this case from the bone reshaping. She's very happy with both her cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty results.

Washingtonians want a balanced nose that works well and fits the face. Dr. Chaboki may suggest septoplasty, nasal valve repair, turbinate reduction, and/or endoscopic sinus surgery as appropriate to improve nasal function during the rhinoplasty consultation.
