When most people think of a rhinoplasty surgery, they often think exclusively about cosmetic changes. Although rhinoplasty is indeed as an operation that alters the shape of the nose, it may, at least in part, be performed due to functional reasons. A functional rhinoplasty is done to improve nasal breathing where less conservative surgeries such as a septoplasty with or without a turbinate reduction is deemed incomplete for various reasons. As a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive training in head and neck surgery as well, Dr. Walker has the skills and experience to help you achieve the nasal changes you desire to improve your nasal breathing. Dr. Walker’s office is 19 minutes from Downtown Atlanta and 16 minutes from Buckhead.
