Types of functional rhinoplasty

As a double board certified specialist in head, neck and facial surgery, Dr. Torkian has an intimate understanding of the entire nasal structure. While the below procedures are the primary techniques for improving the nasal airways, Dr. Torkian is fluent in any form of nasal reconstruction. Patients can rest assured they are in the hands of a premier functional rhinoplasty specialist.

Septoplasty

As one of the most common functional rhinoplasty procedures, a septoplasty is designed to correct a deviated septum. Dr. Torkian has used the septoplasty procedure in Beverly Hills countless times to help patients dramatically reduce the following symptoms:

  • Allergies
  • Chronic sinus problems
  • Snoring
  • Sleep apnea

Turbinate reduction

The turbinates are a series of bones within the nasal structure that are covered in a mucous membrane. Turbinates can become swollen due to a variety of reasons. In such a case, Dr. Torkian performs turbinate reduction that results in a permanent decrease in turbinate size. This gives the patient great relief, as he or she is now able to breathe smoothly and comfortably.

Correction of nasal valve collapse

The nasal valve is the narrowest part of the nasal corridor. Nasal valve collapse is any weakening or narrowing of this part of the nasal structure. When this area weakens, it can contribute to increased difficulty breathing.

Depending on the exact circumstances, Dr. Torkian may use any number of procedures to help his patients find relief from nasal valve collapse. In many cases, it may require the use of a spreader graft to widen the nasal airway. Other cases may only require a noninvasive technique to restore proper airflow. After a thorough examination, Dr. Torkian will determine the best course of action for your septoplasty in Beverly Hills.
