Functional Rhinoplasty

There’s More To A ‘Nose Job’ Than Just A Nice Looking Nose

Many people have struggled to breathe through their nose for their whole lives. Some may snore, others feel like they cannot exercise effectively.

Septoplasty is the most commonly performed functional nasal procedure, but for some patients, the framework of their nose has become distorted and blocks their breathing. Functional rhinoplasty is performed in order to restore a properly functioning nose and help patients breathe better.

Dr. Shaw is double board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and Ear Nose and Throat surgery. This means he has extensive training and experience in helping patients achieve not only a better-looking nose but one that functions properly.
