The issue shouldn’t be whether or not the nose needs to be broken but, rather, which surgeon is performing the surgery

Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Geroulis performs dozens of rhinoplasty procedures a year. As a clinical professor of surgery at University of Chicago Medicine, Dr. Geroulis is a surgeon who teaches future surgeons about this complex facial procedure.

Rhinoplasty surgery corrects the form of the nose, while a septoplasty corrects function,” explains Dr. Geroulis. “Whether or not bones need to be broken depends on the severity of the condition, particularly to what degree the septum is deviated or the nasal shape is deformed.” The nasal cavity is divided down the midline and the degree to which this is off-center, which is called a deviated septum, determines how severe a patient’s symptoms will be. A deviated septum can cause a variety of problems from sinus infection to nosebleeds and severe headaches. A septoplasty can be combined with a rhinoplasty if the patient wants to correct the shape and size of the nose.

“The issue shouldn’t be whether or not the nose needs to be broken but, rather, which surgeon is performing the surgery. A patient should select a surgeon with years of experience, good credentials, excellent patient reviews and, most importantly, someone they feel comfortable around. Once the right surgeon is selected, they will create the most educated and informed surgical plan possible - one that is right for that individual,” concludes Dr. Geroulis.
