Rhinoplasty :

28 year old sought aesthetic improvement of her nasal appearance as well as improved nasal airway.  

Before surgery she felt her nose looked bigger when viewed from the right side. She wanted it less rounded from the side view. Examination revealed the nose crooked, deviated to the right. The tip was lower than the 'hump' of the nose giving the rounded side view she didn't like.

She always had trouble breathing from the left side of her nose. Breathing was worse at night. Internal exam revealed the septum (a midline supporting structure) shifted to the left and partially blocking the airway.

Because of the combined airway and cosmetic procedures performed at the same operation general anesthesia was selected (anesthesiologist present).
