I can’t tell you how many patients I have treated who are just astounded at their ability to breath after undergoing a minimally invasive septo-rhinoplasty.

In an article published June 1st by Health News Digest, details regarding some of the worst reasons people have for choosing to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure were examined. In response, Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon Babak Azizzadeh MD, FACS wants to shed light on some of the positive reasons to select a rhinoplasty surgery.

“While I have heard of patients wanting to get cosmetic surgeries for unsound reasons, I encounter so many patients who truly have very good reasons for wanting a rhinoplasty, including to repair an injury, restore breathing function, or improve self-confidence” said Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS of Los Angeles.

Repairing the look and function of an injured nose is a very common driving force behind a patient’s desire for a rhinoplasty in Los Angeles. Due to the nose’s prominent position on the face, it is often the target of sports injuries and accidents. Sometimes, a rhinoplasty is also necessary to improve the function of a deviated septum not caused by injury. Patients born with a deviated septum that impairs breathing function usually experience a great improvement in quality of life after a septo-rhinoplasty, a procedure which corrects breathing problems and improves the cosmetic appearance of the nose.

“I can’t tell you how many patients I have treated who are just astounded at their ability to breath after undergoing a minimally invasive septo-rhinoplasty. The satisfaction they get from a successful procedure makes undergoing the surgery worth it. Those patients who have a strong, valid reason for wanting the surgery in the first place, tend to be the ones most satisfied with the results,” said Dr. Azizzadeh, board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon.

At the Institute for Rhinoplasty & Nasal Reconstruction in Los Angeles, Dr. Azizzadeh performs rhinoplasty procedures on patients who want the procedure for any number of reasons. Patients who truly want to have the surgery, whether to improve the look or function of the nose, are almost always highly satisfied with the results of his minimally invasive rhinoplasty techniques.

“My patients’ satisfaction is always #1. I want my patients to come in for a procedure because they know it is what they need to improve their quality of life or confidence. I want my patients to leave their procedure feeling better than they have in years,” said Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, and expert rhinoplasty surgeon in Los Angeles.

Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained sub-specialist in nasal and facial plastic surgery, recognized as a Top Doctor by the US News & World Report for rhinoplasty. He is one of the leading experts in the fields of primary, revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is the author of five bestselling books, including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook entitled “Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty.” Dr. Azizzadeh is double-board certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology, which gives him a distinctive insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.
