Who is the right candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Ever heard about the word nose job? Rhinoplasty is the medical term used for a nose job. There are many people who are not born with a sharp straight nose. The structure of your nose says a lot about your looks. Rhinoplasty is a procedure in which the shape and size of your nose are reconstructed and rectified for enhancing the look of your nose. There is one more aspect of the surgery. Often a deviated or de-shaped nose structure can lead to breathing problem which finally leads to loud snoring at night. Rhinoplasty is also a great solution to reduce snoring.

Now the question is how are the eligible candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Best Candidate for Rhinoplasty

  • If one is unhappy or self-conscious about the current nose structure, one should go for Rhinoplasty.
  • If there is an inborn deformity of the nose, Rhinoplasty is for them. 
  • People who have crossed the age of mid-teens can go for this nose job. Before one reaches mid-teen, the nose keeps on growing and change shape. So one should definitely wait till that period.
  • If one is suffering from loud snoring and breathing problem, maybe the shape of the nose is blocking the air flow. Rhinoplasty will be the perfect solution for those candidates since the surgery can reshape the nose and the blockage can be cleared.

One important factor is that people who are aware of any allergies or previous medical conditions should share the details with the surgeon since it reduces the risk of reaction to any medications or anaesthesia.

The aim of Rhinoplasty

The basic aim of a Rhinoplasty surgery is:

  • Changing the size and angle of the nose.
  • Straightening the bridge of the nose to provide a sharp look.
  • Reshaping the tip of the nose.
  • Also narrowing the nostrils.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and its Lesser Twin-Snoring

Snoring is more than just a frustrating habit that makes your sleeping partners uncomfortable. This can also be an indication of something worse. Here are some essential facts you need to know about snoring and its association with sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a disorder which is characterized by abnormally shallow breathing (hypopneas) or abnormal pauses in breathing (apneas) during sleep. These apneas can occur due to a physical blockage to airflow or a lack of respiratory effort, or a combination of both.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) – OSA happens when the airway is blocked, the patient’s tongue falls back against the soft palate, and the soft palate and uvula fall back against the back of the throat, effectively closing the airway and causing pauses in breathing and subsequently loud snoring. Patients suffering from OSA often feel exhausted during the day and report daytime drowsiness, which they often become used to. OSA can also affect the work performance, attention, enthusiasm and also have other cognitive or behavioral effects.

Snoring:  Snoring is due to relaxation in soft tissues (when breathing) around the back of the throat which causes the narrowing of the upper respiratory structures while sleeping. Meanwhile, anything that narrows the breathing passages can also cause snoring, which includes: Enlarged uvula, medically known as the Palatine uvula (fleshy piece of tissue that hangs down in the back of your throat), deviated septum (when the thin wall between your nostrils is misaligned), an elongated soft palate, obstructions in the nasal area and larger tonsils.

If you suffer from daytime fatigue and sleepiness, and/ or if you don't feel refreshed in the morning after a night's sleep, you should, perhaps, consider getting a sleep study. There are a few ways that you can get that done. The usual method is to go to a sleep study clinic (or a clinic which specializes in snoring and sleep apnea), where you will be connected to a variety of devices that will monitor your body functions while you are sleeping. These include brain activity, eye movements, heart rhythm, oxygen saturation, and muscle activity. Another option is you can get a home testing device, which will also monitor your certain sleep functions, but in the comfort of your own home and bed.

Symptoms of sleep apnea

  • Loud and chronic snoring almost every night
  • Snorting, Choking or gasping during sleep
  • Pauses in breathing
  • A sore throat or feeling dehydrated when waking up
  • Night sweats, waking up at night feeling short of breath, Insomnia, restless or fitful sleep
  • Daytime drowsiness and exhaustion, irrespective of the time you spend in bed
  • Absent-mindedness and difficulty concentrating
  • Going to the restroom frequently during the night
  • Morning headaches
  • Uncharacteristic grumpiness, petulance, or depression
  • Sexual dysfunction
So, how can you say if you have sleep apnea or just fall into the group of “simple snorers?”
Understanding your conditions and symptoms is the first and most elementary step in finding a remedy. The obvious way is to examine how you feel during the daytime. Simple snoring doesn’t hamper the quality of your sleep as much as sleep apnea does, so you’re less likely to suffer from sleepiness, mood swings and extreme fatigue during the day. The main risk related to sleep apnea is going undiagnosed. When a sleeper experiences no snoring, but still has sleep apnea, the risk increases radically. Sleep apnea is a serious disorder, so you should contact a doctor right away if you or your partner notices the symptoms. Your doctor’s diagnosis of sleep apnea may involve seeing a professional sleep specialist and tests that can be done in a clinic or at home.


Non – Invasive method

Continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP): This small device uses mild air pressure to keep airways of a person with sleep apnoea to open continuously to breathe more easily during sleep. This is a portable device and is fitted on the nose when needed.

Conservative Methods

Uvulectomy: This is performed on patients with a large uvula that causes loud snoring. The procedure involves complete or partial incising the uvula and/or inferior rim of the soft palate, thereby reducing its size.
Septoplasty, Somnoplasty and functional Rhinoplasty: These surgical procedures will be performed when Snoring is a result of nasal obstruction and depending on the severity.

Adenotonsillectomy: This is the removal of the tonsils and adenoids which is commonly performed in children with the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

Palatal implants: A single-stage office procedure (a form of oropharyngeal surgery) involving the placement of three polyester implants in the soft palate under local anesthesia to help reduce vibration that causes snoring.

Surgical procedures

Palatal surgery: Also called as Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), this is a procedure used to remove excess tissue in the throat to broaden the airway.

Genioglossal advancement surgery: Genioglossus is the largest muscle of the tongue responsible for protruding the tongue. Genioglossus advancement captures this area of bony attachment and permanently repositions it. The procedure creates more room for the tongue to relax during sleep without obstructing the passages resulting in an enlargement and stabilization of the airway.

Thyrohyoid suspension procedure: This involves advancing the hyoid bone (U-shaped bone in the neck, located above the level area of the thyroid cartilage) anterior or interior to the thyroid cartilage and helps to stabilize the collapsible region of the airway. Maxillary-mandibular advancement: Also called as bimaxillary advancement or double jaw advancement, maxillary-mandibular advancement provides the greatest improvement in treating severe obstructive sleep apnea compared to other procedures. In this process, the upper (maxilla) and lower (mandible) jaws are moved forward, and it effectively enlarges the airway in both the palate and tongue regions.

Tracheotomy: Tracheotomy is used to cure rare cases with chronic OSA syndrome or life-threatening sleep-disordered breathing.

In contrast to the conventional sinus surgeries that require opening up the nasal cavity so as to do the surgery, endoscopic sinus surgeries are minimally invasive surgeries that use endoscopes containing a camera at its end inserted through the nostrils, to view the inner sinus posture and condition as a live reel. They also widen the nasal drainage pathways and the paranasal sinuses, improving the nasal ventilation, so as to clear a lot of diseases conditions that had disrupted the nasal-sinus equilibrium.

The eardrum,  scientifically referred to as the tympanic membrane is a thin, cone-shaped membrane. Its main function is to transmit sound.


The eardrum can be damaged or ruptured due to multiple reasons. Such as :
  • Infections: commonly seen in children. Due to an infection, the fluid accumulating behind the eardrum causes pressure on the eardrum resulting from the fluid build up.  this can cause the eardrum to rupture.
  • Pressure changes: This happens when the pressure outside the ear is different from pressure inside the ear.
  • Injury: injuries can also rupture the eardrum, such as:
  • Getting hit in the eardrum
  • Sports  injury
  • Falling on ear
  • Car accidents.

What does eardrum damage look like?


An eardrum rupture is a small tear or a hole in the membrane.
Since it is a thin tissue it is very delicate. The ruptured eardrum is also called perforated eardrum.

What To Except After Septoplasty ?

Do you feel difficulty in breathing after an injury to the nose???
Then it might be because of deviated septum, which makes the nasal passage smaller and causes difficulty in breathing
You are not late!!!! If you are the one suffering from this, then do septoplasty, the surgical treatment to correct the deviated septum.
Now let's  know more about septoplasty .....

The septum is a wall that divides nose into two separate nostrils. It is made from the bone and cartilage. A condition of deviated septum happened when nose septum is moved to the one side of the nose.

What are the symptoms of a deviated septum?

Generally, many people are born with a deviated septum but it can also occur due to an injury to the nose. People with a deviated septum have a smaller nasal passage which is much smaller than the other septum. This stage causes difficulty in breathing. Other symptoms include facial pain and nose bleeding.

What is the treatment for the deviated septum?

Surgery is the only way to repair the deviated septum. The surgery for a deviated septum is known as septoplasty. Septoplasty is a surgical process which is performed to repair a deviated nasal septum. When the cartilage that separates nostrils is displaced from its position, a stage of the deviated septum has occurred. A deviated septum can develop breathing problems, pain, and bleeding. Septoplasty is used to align the alignment of the septum that further improves airflow through the nose. It is an outpatient procedure. AUM ENT clinic is the best ENT clinic in Andheri, Mumbai.

What is the septoplasty procedure?

A septoplasty procedure takes around 30 to 90 minutes to perform, which depends on the problem complexity and condition. In septoplasty, a surgeon has developed an incision on the one side of the nose to reach to the septum. Then, the surgeon lifts up the mucous membrane. The mucous membrane is a protective membrane that covers the septum. Further, the surgeon realigns the deviated septum in the right position. In this process, any barriers such as extra pieces of cartilage or bone are removed to complete the process. The mucous membrane is repositioned after the surgery. The doctors of AUM ENT clinic, Mumbai are specialized for performing septoplasty.
