I am a 31 year old male that has had my nose broken on 3 separate occasions playing sports. My new bride has informed me that my snoring is like the sound of a freight train! She suggests that I have it checked out and also consider having my nose straightened-which I would like also. Do I see you first? Or my regular doctor? Please advise me of the steps that need to be taken 1st.
You are dealing with two issues here. You need to see a facial plastic surgeon who is comfortable with both functional and aesthetic nose surgery so you get internal and external work done. This will improve your nasal airway. Fixing the nose though does not always fix snoring which often comes from other factors (throat structures, body mass index, lifestyle habits) and so you should see an otolaryngologist who evaluates and treats sleep disorders as well.
