Male Rhinoplasty / Septorhinoplasty with Functional and Aesthetic Components

This patient underwent a rhinoplasty / septorhinoplasty to improve his breathing and reduce the bridge of his nose.

On this page, we showcase the journey of a patient who underwent a procedure to address both aesthetic concerns and functional issues related to his nose. The rhinoplasty before and after photographs depict the results achieved through a septoplasty and rhinoplasty, highlighting the patient’s straightened nose, reduced dorsum, and improved breathing.

The before photographs capture the initial condition of the patient’s nose, showcasing the features that prompted him to seek a rhinoplasty. The images reveal a nose with a visible deviation, asymmetry, and an excessive dorsal hump that drew attention away from the patient’s other facial features. Furthermore, the patient experienced breathing difficulties, affecting his overall quality of life.

The patient discussed his concerns with Dr. Mittermiller and they formulated a plan to address his concerns. The rhinoplasty procedure aimed to achieve multiple goals: straightening the nose, reducing the dorsal hump, and improving the patient’s breathing.

During the surgical procedure, Dr. Mittermiller modified the patient’s nasal structure, correcting the deviation and asymmetry. The excess cartilage and bone responsible for the dorsal hump were removed and the nose was reconstructed to maintain its strength and support while producing a smoother and more harmonious nasal profile.

The after photographs portray the outcome of the rhinoplasty. The patient’s nose appears significantly straighter and more symmetrical, to better blend with the rest of his facial features. The reduction in the dorsal hump has created a sleek and refined nasal contour, contributing to a balanced and attractive appearance.

Moreover, the rhinoplasty procedure successfully improved the patient’s breathing difficulties. The improved nasal structure has enhanced the patient’s airflow, allowing him to experience a newfound ease of breathing. This significant functional improvement has had a positive impact on the patient’s overall well-being and quality of life.

Beyond the visual evidence captured in the before and after photographs, the patient’s NOSE scores speak to the success of his rhinoplasty experience. Following the procedure, the patient reported improvements to questions addressing multiple aspects of nasal obstruction, and he felt more confident about his nose. Additionally, the improved breathing has allowed him to engage in physical activities with greater comfort and enjoyment.
