There area number of personal reasons why people seek out Rhinoplasty Chicago. The nose may be aesthetically unpleasant to the individual or disproportionate to the other features of the face, and so they may choose to have a Rhinoplasty to improve the aesthetic of their nose and face. Other people may opt for a nose surgery to improve the function of their nose. Many individuals suffer from a deviated septum which occurs when the cartilage or bone supporting the nose and directing the airflow to and from the nose is crooked causing difficulty breathing, snoring and sleep apnea. Nose surgery to correct a deviated septum is called Septoplasty and is a reconstructive procedure done for functional reasons. Some individuals may choose nose surgery to correct both functional and aesthetic issues at the same time in a Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty Chicago.
