CAN RHINOPLASTY HELP TO REDUCE SNORING?
Can Rhinoplasty Remove My Snoring Problem?
Snoring is an annoyance for many people. It bothers not only the people who may sleep nearby, but it can also bother you because it affects your breathing pattern. Snoring can sometimes make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep.
If you have done any research, you have probably come across Rhinoplasty as a possible solution, but does it work to stop snoring?
Snoring is a physical phenomenon that occurs when during breathing the flow of air does not pass easily between the nose and throat, thus inducing the vibration of a part of the throat that causes the noise.
But why do you snore? Under normal conditions, air enters the body through the nose. If obstacles arise in the path of the airflow between the nose and the lungs, turbulence occurs. These cause a vibration of the anatomical structures and, therefore, the emission of that characteristic noise. In most cases, the cause of the disorder is rhinogenic, that is, people snore because there is an obstruction in the nose due to the deviated nasal septum, swelling of the turbinates, or a narrowing of the nasal valve. To determine the cause of snoring, a simple visit to the otorhinolaryngologist or plastic surgeon is sufficient.
Is there a way to stop snoring? If your partner’s kicks and elbows aren’t enough, the scalpel is the only way to silence the annoying night gigs.
If you are snoring due to a structural problem in your nose, Rhinoplasty will help you stop snoring. Your surgeon will most likely need to remove some cartilage to open up the airways and correct the shape of the septum. You’ll be able to breathe more easily after that.
The inside of your nose will swell during the recovery period. This swelling will narrow your airways, causing you to snore. So, you should be aware that snoring after Rhinoplasty is completely normal and expected for the next few weeks.
