Top UK Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Julian Rowe-Jones on: What is functional septorhinoplasty?
Functional septorhinoplasty is distinguished from aesthetic or cosmetic septorhinoplasty because its main goal is to improve the breathing, to deal with nasal blockage. It’s different from septoplasty. Septoplasty is just to do with straightening the septum, but some noses that are blocked have not just a twisted septum, but the bones are twisted as well and therefore, septorhinoplasty treats the twist in the septum for blockage and also straightens the nose for blockage. Your surgeon should be able to perform a functional septorhinoplasty whilst preserving or improving the aesthetics of the nose as well.

A Rhinoplasty Testimonial
I would like to thank Mr Julian Rowe-Jones and his fantastic team that operated on my hideously over populated polyp nose a year ago today. When I first went to the nose clinic I was unable to breathe through my nose let alone smell, but a year on, my expenditure on lip gloss and tissues has come down considerably.
I even have a whiff of smell now and again: dog food or flowers. I don’t mind as it is a very nice surprise after not been able to smell for 29 years! I am also able to do fencing again without sounding like a charging bull!!! Thanks to you all for always making me so welcome. I will no doubt be back!
Keep up the good work.
