Nose job to treat non-allergic rhinitis
I have non-allergic rhinitis. Is it possible for someone with this condition to have rhinoplasty?
It is possible for you to have a rhinoplasty to address the appearance of the nose. Occasionally, we combine rhinoplasty with functional surgery, such as septoplasty to correct a deviated septum and turbinate surgery to address enlarged turbinates. One of the goals of these functional surgeries is to improve nasal function. While non-allergic rhinitis may improve with turbinate surgery, I would advise you that medical therapy is an important treatment for your condition. As well, I would advise you that rhinitis may persist after rhinoplasty.
