Surgeon: Dr. David Stoker
This 17-year-old male was experiencing difficulty in breathing through his nose. In addition, he wanted a less prominent nose. He decided to learn more about a Los Angeles rhinoplasty and septoplasty.
Men and women visit our practice for nose surgery for varying reasons, such as enhancing their nose's size or shape, repairing damage caused by an injury, improving or restoring breathing, or complementing another facial sculpting procedure, such as a face lift.
In the case of this patient, the surgeon performed a rhinoplasty, septoplasty and turbinate surgery to accomplish his goals. While the rhinoplasty can be designed to reshape or resize the nose, a septoplasty can alleviate breathing problems by straightening the nasal septum. For some patients, turbinate surgery may help to make the nasal cavities larger and assist with breathing issues.
