Is a person with a deviated septum unable to get a nose job?
Definitely not. In fact the opposite is often true in that having a deviated septum with some breathing issues is often the impetus and convincing factor in making the decision to have surgery. Anyone with this problem who desires aesthetic changes in conjunction with their functional surgery should seek a physician who is qualified and experienced at providing the “total nose approach” and can perform both procedures at the same time. In some situations a portion of the cost relating to the medical problems of the deviated septum may be covered by insurance with the remainder of the cosmetic rhinoplasty procedure fee being paid for out of pocket. For some patients this creates additional incentives to undergo the procedure.
