Insurance Based Rhinoplasty Los Angeles

Many of my patients that consult with me for a rhinoplasty procedure do so because of breathing problems. The primary concern of these patients is not with the aesthetic aspects of their noses (i.e., their appearance), but rather the primary concern is the functionality of the nose. In cases where functional rhinoplasty is performed to alleviate breathing problems, insurance often covers the procedure.

A report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) highlights the importance of recognizing the structural integrity of the nasal framework as it underlies the modern approach to functional rhinoplasty. For some patients, their breathing problems begin after an accident. Damage to the nose can cause conditions such as a deviated septum. A recently broken nose can be difficult to breathe through, as can one that has been deformed by an old fracture that was never repaired. Rhinoplasty can be used to reshape the nose and return its optimal function. In cases like these, your insurance provider will usually cover some or all of the cost of your procedure.

I'd be happy to meet with you at my Los Angeles office to recommend the best procedure for your nose. Simply request a consultation or call 310.300.1779.

Functional Rhinoplasty Los Angeles

If your nose has been recently broken, getting it corrected immediately can help improve its function while returning it to its normal appearance. This type of rhinoplasty will usually be covered by your insurance. Most procedures that seek to improve the appearance of the nose and improve its function may only be covered in part. Because the aesthetic considerations are usually performed separately from the corrective portions, you may be responsible for covering the cosmetic aspects of your procedure. You should carefully review your insurance policy and submit the proper paperwork prior to your procedure in order to find out what will be covered and what won't.
