The temperature is slowly dropping and fall is here, which means cold mornings, hot cocoa and lots of leaves. While we enjoy the fall weather, cooler temperatures can also mean dealing with pesky colds and other cold weather ailments. If you struggle with sinus problems in the winter, we’re sharing some ways to help alleviate those issues .

 

First and foremost, staying hydrated and moisturized will help decrease fluid buildup in your sinuses and keep your skin from drying out in the cold.

 

If you’re suffering from more severe breathing problems, a rhinoplasty procedure could be your answer. Although the procedure cannot cure your sinus issues, it can help open airways and aid breathing problems caused by nose structure.

 

Rhinoplasty is a highly beneficial procedure for solving the breathing problems we mentioned, along with addressing any dissatisfaction you may have with the shape, size, or other aspects of your nose. We perform both ‘open’ and ‘closed’ rhinoplasty procedures, with the distinction being whether the incision is made on the outside or inside of the nose. In an open rhinoplasty, an incision is made across the strip of tissue separating your nostrils. This technique allows for the greatest visibility of the inner nasal structures. In a closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made within your nose, and scars are not apparent externally.

 

Results from a rhinoplasty typically begin to show a few weeks after the procedure, as swelling subsides. You can see some of the amazing results from rhinoplasty procedures we’ve performed in our Before and After Gallery.

 

There are advantages to each technique and we’d love to discuss which is right for your specific needs during your first free consultation! Give us a call at (404) 257-9888 to schedule your appointment.
