Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a nose job, is often times performed to improve the cosmetic appearance of a person's nose. However, what many people do not realize is that rhinoplasty can also improve the way a person's nose functions. One improvement is alleviating nasal obstruction which results in snoring.
When people have nasal obstruction, air may not pass through the nose efficiently. This key function, when negatively impacted, can cause people to snore at night and interfere with breathing. It can also lead to sleep apnea or cyclical sleep-arousal cycle. Over time, these conditions can adversely impact a person's health.
Once people have rhinoplasty to correct obstruction in their nasal passages, they are no longer reliant on breathing through their mouths at night. This means that they will not snore as much or even snore at all. Over time, their sleep can improve as well as their overall quality of life.
