Many patients come to FACE simply because they desire to breathe better through their nose. Very often breathing can be improved with a short outpatient surgery that has very little down time and virtually no pain. Patients often proclaim that they never realized it was possible to breathe so well at the first post-operative visit. The vast majority of surgeries designed to improve breathing are covered by insurance. Additionally many patients find that during the short functional procedure, is an excellent time to make small improvements to the shape of the nose if desired. Dr Dixon and the FACE team will be happy to lead you through the process during your private consultation.
