Cosmetic nasal surgery called rhinoplasty can change the outward appearance of the nose. If it is combined with repair of a deviated nasal septum, it is called a septorhinoplasty. This procedure can correct nasal breathing problems along with correcting the shape of the nose. Septorhinoplasty may involve changes to the bone, cartilage and skin that help improve the nose’s symmetry and create the desired look. As an ENT surgeon, Dr. Agresti has extensive experience repairing nasal airway problems and is well-equipped to combine this procedure with the cosmetic changes her patients seek. This surgery requires general anesthesia and takes approximately two hours to complete. Most people recover in seven to ten days and can resume normal activity, however, swelling may take months to resolve completely and to see the long-term results.
