Rhinoplasty is not always a cosmetic procedure. The nose may take on an unnatural shape after an injury, or may have a weakened framework that interferes with breathing. In these cases, a reconstructive or functional rhinoplasty can help restore a natural appearing nose that also allows for effective breathing. There are many people who are seeking a Rhinoplasty in Richmond VA for many different reasons
This young softball star sustained a direct blow to the bridge of her nose. After several weeks she began to notice that her nose was collapsing and she was unable to breathe through her nose. This is known as a saddle-nose deformity.
She underwent a reconstructive rhinoplasty to rebuild the central support structure of her nose and re-establish her nasal breathing passages.
As you can see from the second photo, when she came in 1 month after her surgery she could not have been happier. Her nose had a normal appearance and she was able to breathe on both sides.
