Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Patients may be unhappy with the size or shape of their nose due to trauma or genetics. Rhinoplasty, also referred to as nose surgery, is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose.  The motivation for rhinoplasty may be to change the appearance of the nose, its function, or both. 

A deviated septum may cause nasal airway obstruction and difficulty breathing. Due to the improvement in breathing that patients may experience, insurance companies will sometimes cover a septoplasty. Documentation of nasal airway obstruction must be provided. SIH Medical Group Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery will help coordinate obtaining the right documentation to submit to your insurance company by working with you and your primary care provider.
