Rhinoplasty For Those Who Snore
Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job, is commonly known for enhancing the aesthetic appearance of a person’s nose. However, what many people do not know is that rhinoplasty can also be used to improve nasal function, correct birth deformities and nose reconstruction. One such improvement brought about through rhinoplasty is the removal of nasal obstructions, which can sometimes result in snoring.
Does your snoring disturb your partner?
When an individual has a nasal obstruction, air does not pass through the nose in an efficient manner. Such interference with breathing can cause a person to snore at night, which might lead to sleep apnoea or cyclical sleep-arousal cycle. Over a period of time, such conditions can have an adverse impact on a person’s health. In some cases, an ENT surgeon may advise nose surgery to remove the nasal obstruction, and help the patient breathe normally.
If you are wondering if rhinoplasty can reduce your snoring, you should consult with a surgeon who has received specialised training in performing the procedure, such as an ENT surgeon. The surgeon should conduct a thorough assessment to determine if nose surgery can correct the problem, and assess your suitability for the procedure. If you are found suitable for rhinoplasty, the ENT surgeon will give you detailed information about the procedure, including advice about benefits, risks and possible complications, to enable you to make an informed decision on whether to go ahead with it.
Rhinoplasty to remove nasal obstructions that result in snoring can usually be preformed in less than two hours. During nose surgery, the patient will be placed under anaesthesia, so that they do not feel any discomfort. The ENT surgeon will first make an incision, before removing any tissue or cartilage obstructions in the nasal passages, which prevent the patient from breathing properly. After nose surgery, a patient can expect their snoring to reduce significantly, and sometimes even stop completely. Over a period of time, the patients sleep pattern should improve, enhancing their quality of life.
