When undergoing nasal plastic surgery, it’s important to know what type of procedure is best for you. Whether you are choosing the surgery for aesthetic preferences or health reasons, it is best to know what each procedure does to know if it’s the right thing for you.
There are two main popular procedures that patients choose for nasal surgeries: septoplasty and rhinoplasty. However, before choosing a procedure, you need to know what kind of changes each surgery can do for you.
What Will Rhinoplasty Do For Me?
Rhinoplasty is a common procedure that many patients get to improve the shape of their nose. Whether it is changing the tip of their nose, decreasing the size, or choosing a more narrow approach; Rhinoplasty is a sought-after popular procedure. At MP Plastic Surgery, Dr. Max Pekarev and his team can help significantly alter and correct the shape of your nose. The main things that Dr. Max Pekarev can help with include:
- Creating a better balance between your nose and face

What Are Specific Changes That Rhinoplasty Can Fix?
Additionally, the surgery can help alter your nose to help better suit your face. If you are unsure of what the best options are for, our team can help you with a free initial consultation. The consultation will involve an examination of your nose and will give different options for treatment. Rhinoplasty surgery can make any of these changes to fit your specific needs:
- Reduce the size of your nose to match your face size
- Reduce large nostrils
- Straighten any bumps on the nose
- Make your nose appear more narrow
What Will Septoplasty Do For Me?
Septoplasty is a nasal procedure that is used to improve breathing through the nose. The surgery is most commonly used to fix the interior of the nose for health purposes. Septoplasty will not change the appearance of your nose in a specific way that rhinoplasty can. However, it can help improve the airways in your nose from being blocked.
What Are Some Reasons For Getting Septoplasty?
Most people who want septoplasty are doing so for repair reasons instead of aesthetic reasons. The procedure can be very beneficial to those with a deviated septum or with breathing problems. These are the main reasons people choose septoplasty surgery:
- Trouble breathing through the nose
- Having a blocked airway through the nose
- Having a deviated septum
- Frequent headaches due to nasal issues
While septoplasty is a great choice for those that struggle with nasal breathing issues, rhinoplasty is the preferred choice for those seeking a different outward facial appearance. If you are interested in possibly changing or altering the shape of your nose, Dr. Max Pekarev and his team can work with you to help choose the right type of procedure for you at your free consultation.
