What is the Difference Between A Functional & Aesthetic Rhinoplasty?

There are many reasons a patient may be interested in a rhinoplasty or ‘nose job’. Some patients are bothered by the aesthetic appearance of the nose they were born with, while others would like to correct medical problems caused by injury or trauma. Whatever the reason you may be considering rhinoplasty surgery, we’re here to help.

At Stein Plastic Surgery, you know you’re in good hands. Dr. Stein is a double board-certified surgeon specializing in facial procedures of all types. He understands the complexities that it takes to provide each patient with their individual desired results. Dr. Stein uses the latest rhinoplasty techniques to produce an optimal outcome with a speedy recovery.

Although functional and aesthetic rhinoplasty surgeries address different concerns, they can often be combined to improve the overall structure of the nose.

Aesthetic Rhinoplasty

Aesthetic rhinoplasty surgery is most commonly done to resize and reshape the appearance of your nose. Dr. Stein is able to redefine the tip, address problem bumps on the bridge, reduce the appearance of wide nostrils, and/or reshape the nose’s structure. The result is a better-looking profile and more contoured facial appearance. In most cases, only one aesthetic rhinoplasty surgery is needed in a lifetime.

Functional Rhinoplasty

Functional or medical rhinoplasty surgery is typically done to correct nasal issues that cause a deviated septum or impair breathing. After a medical rhinoplasty, you’ll be able to sleep better without interruption and struggle less with day-to-day breathing problems. Many men and women opt to have an aesthetic rhinoplasty done at the same time noting the enhanced shape as a bonus to the procedure.

Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Stein will assess your individual case before creating a custom action plan to help you meet your end-goals. Feel free to bring a list of questions along with photos that depict your ideal outcome so that Dr. Stein can have a better idea of what you’d like to achieve.
