Reconstructive Nose Surgery

Nasal congestion and breathing difficulties are very common complaints among both men and women. While initial treatment may involve allergy medication or antihistamines, reconstructive nose surgery or rhinoplasty helps Maryland, Northern Virginia, and other Washington, DC area residents breathe more freely. Dr. Houtan Chaboki is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, which makes him highly qualified in both cosmetic and corrective surgery of the nose.

Reconstructive nose surgery may be performed with or without cosmetic rhinoplasty. Many people who visit Dr. Chaboki near Maryland combine a facelift or other facial sculpting procedure with corrective nose surgery to make the most of their recovery time.

Deviated Septum

The sheet of cartilage and bone that divides the nose into right and left chambers is called the nasal septum. A deviated septum is a condition where the septum is severely shifted away from the midline, crooked, bent or misshapen. Septal deviation is very common; roughly 80% of people have deviated septums to some degree. Maryland area rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Chaboki can determine if you are suffering from a deviated septum during your consultation.

The most common symptoms caused by a deviated septum include nasal obstruction, nasal congestion, difficulty breathing through the nose, and snoring. Nasal congestion and difficulty breathing may be worse on one side, or alternate sides. Symptoms may occur all day or primarily at night. Some patients have repeated sinus infections or post-nasal drip because sinus drainage is blocked by a deviated septum. A deviated septum may be present at birth, caused by an injury, or can result from damage from previous treatments or surgery.

Nasal Valve Compromise

Collapse of the nasal valve is a relatively uncommon, as compared to deviated septum or enlarged turbinates, but important cause of nasal airway obstruction. The nasal valve is the narrowest area of the nasal passages where most blockages occur. The valve is made of the nasal septum, inferior turbinate and lower two-thirds of the nose. Weakening of the valve will make the nose be pinched or collapse on inspiration, both of which contribute to nasal congestion.

Treatment is primarily surgery to improve the nose structurally via cartilage grafts to help open the nasal passages and/or to help prevent collapse of the nose. Procedures on the nasal valve are sometimes called functional rhinoplasty or septorhinoplasty, and commonly combined with septoplasty or deviated septum surgery.

Broken Nose Treatment

The nose projects prominently from the face, making it vulnerable to injury. So, it's not surprising that it is quite frequently broken. Once the immediate bruising and swelling subsides, a broken nose or nasal fracture may significantly change your facial appearance. Nasal injuries can also increase nasal obstruction, nasal congestion, and snoring and may cause or worsen a deviated septum.

There is a window of opportunity when a broken nose can be ideally treated in Washington, DC with reconstructive nose surgery. For this reason, it is important to be evaluated by a facial plastic surgeon soon after injury. Dr. Houtan Chaboki makes every effort to evaluate patients with nasal trauma in a timely fashion.
