Although rhinoplasty is usually considered an aesthetics-oriented surgery, we must remember that the nose is not just an organ that affects how we look, but this organ plays an important part in our vital necessity of breathing.
In this regard, we must avoid a surgical approach that will reduce and narrow the nose's dimensions until it loses its functions purely on aesthetical concerns.
If the patient has problems breathing through the nose, rhinoplasty should be carried out along with interventions aiming to resolve these problems (deviation, septoplasty, concha reduction,
sinusitis surgery, etc.).
Especially male patients apply with accompanying airway problems, their aesthetical concerns are secondary.
The aesthetical intervention should support the nose's functions.
In nose surgeries, aesthetics and functionality are inseparable.
