A nasal deformity can cause issues both functionally and cosmetically. A functional deformity might cause irritating nasal blockage, noisy breathing, snoring, decreased sense of smell and taste and/or recurrent sinusitis. In addition a cosmetic deformity might cause self-esteem and confidence issues.
Given the complexity of performing a 3-dimensional surgery, University of Minnesota Physicians' surgeons perform a comprehensive nasal exam and facial analysis to identify all structural and cosmetic concerns.
