Breath Better with Rhinoplasty

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Many people are unsatisfied with the shape of their nose and turn to rhinoplasty to promote balance and improve attractiveness. However, there are many people suffering because they have a defect in their nose that prevents them from breathing normally. After clearing your nose with nasal saline spray do you still experience problems breathing? Even after treating congestion problems does it feel like there is something still blocking your airways. There could be structural issues that have developed and are responsible for blocked airways. Fortunately rhinoplasty can restore normal function of the nose as well as enhance the appearance while balancing out your facial proportions.

Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as nose surgery, is a cosmetic surgery designed to reshape, restructure, and treat any nasal airway obstructions. Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants has mastered an effective rhinoplasty technique which offers his patients maximal results with minimal downtime. This technique allows him to reshape the nose without leaving behind visible scars or damage.

What Causes Nasal Obstruction?

There are many reasons why the nasal airways can be blocked, affecting a person’s breathing. A plastic surgeon is able to evaluate the underlying problems and create a plan of treatment to improve breathing and aesthetic appeal. Some common issues that can result in nasal obstruction are:

  • Deviated septum

  • Internal valve collapse

  • Enlarged turbinates

  • Nasal polyps

What are Signs of Airway Obstruction?

Nasal obstruction can affect a patient’s quality of life as it causes fatigue, poor sleep quality, loss of energy and snoring. Symptoms of airway obstruction include:

  • Nasal congestion

  • Mouth breathing

  • Dry mouth

  • Reduced sense of smell

  • Recurring sinus infections

  • Sleep disturbance

Treating Nasal Obstruction:

Patients can improve nasal airways with treatment from Dr. Grigoryants. He will correct a patient’s deviated septum through septoplasty. A hidden incision is made in the nose to straighten the crooked septum.

Enlarged turbinates can cause frequent nasal airway obstruction. They swell and shrink throughout the course of the day negatively affecting nasal breathing. It is initially treated with nasal sprays to reduce tissue growth, but for patients who are unresponsive to treatment, surgical intervention can definitively treat the enlarged turbinates. During surgery the turbinates are reduced to normal size, thus restore breathing function.

The internal valve area is located a little less than halfway up the nose, in the middle of the nasal bridge. This is a very sensitive area and the height or width of the bridge can affect the valve. Invisible spreader grafts and sutures reconstruct cartilage attachments and maintain good flow of air through this region.

Why Should you Correct Nasal Airway Obstruction?

The nasal airway plays a key role in bringing oxygen into the body. A damaged nasal passage will not perform its functional duties of filtering air pollutants and bringing in adequate amounts of oxygen. In Southern California quantities of pollutants continue to increase daily and is likely to affect those with nasal problems.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nose surgery improves appearance and proportion of the nose as well as correct impaired breathing that was caused by structural abnormalities. Only the most experienced plastic surgeons are capable of achieving cosmetic improvements and enhance breathing function.

What to Expect After Rhinoplasty:

Patients may experience a few effects immediately after treatment, including swelling, discomfort, and pain. These side effects of the surgery will subside over time and airflow will gradually improve.

A well-planned rhinoplasty will alter the shape of the nose and improve the nasal passage for smooth and easy breathing. Dr. Grigoryants offers treatment options to correct airways for patients suffering from nasal airway blockage.

Discover how you can reduce signs of nasal airway blockage with the help of Dr. Grigoryants. His precision and accuracy will remove obstructions in nasal structures and patients can enjoy breathing freely. Open the airways to a healthy life with rhinoplasty in Los Angeles.

A Scarless Nose job – Closed Rhinoplasty in Los Angeles

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Nose reshaping or rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging procedures in plastic surgery. Every rhinoplasty patient requires a carefully thought out plan as each person has a different nose and face. Two rhinoplasty techniques are available closed and open rhinoplasty.

With open rhinoplasty an incision is made through the bottom portion of the nose (called columella) and the skin is moved back to expose the cartilages. Although open rhinoplasty offers great visibility, it leave a noticeable scar in many patients. Furthurmore, significant scarring has been seen in some patients resulting in thickening of the front portion of the columella. It is very difficult and sometimes impossible to revise a poorly healed scar.

In closed rhinoplasty  incisions are placed inside the nose and no scar will be present across the columella.  Healing followig closed rhinoplasty appears faster than after closed rhinoplasty.  With recent advances in closed rhinoplasty,  excellent results can be achieved with a high rate of consistency. Closed rhinoplasty is our preferred technique and our specialty.  Closed rhinoplasty requires special skills and experience.  A person considering rhinoplasty should be able to view as many rhinoplasty before and after photographs as possible to be able to assess the surgeon’s work.
