Are my breathing problems always corrected with rhinoplasty? Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian - answers, and tips

A rhinoplasty procedure can often times improve breathing, but breathing problems are usually improved by performing a procedure known as a septoplasty.  Often, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a board certified plastic surgeon practicing in Los Angeles, can examine your nose and determine your candidacy for septoplasty and rhinoplasty at the same time.  If you are requesting cosmetic improvement in the nose and improvement in breathing through the nose, you may be a candidate for a procedure known as a septorhinoplasty.  A septorhinoplasty combines elements of a functional nasal surgery with a cosmetic nasal surgery and is best performed in one setting as an outpatient surgical procedure.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in rhinoplasty and nasal surgery and performs operations in both Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.  He is recognized as an expert in revision rhinoplasty and can perform your nose surgery with precision and meticulous attention to detail.  Our office also performs facial cosmetic surgery including neck liposuction, face lifts, neck lift, and eyelid lifts.  Many of these procedures can be performed at the same time as a rhinoplasty or septorhinoplasty.  If you are considering undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian can provide you with full detail of the procedure and your expectation.  Please call our office at 310-998-5533 and speak to our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinators to schedule a consultation with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian.
