Fix my deviated septum and make my nose look prettier – can one doctor do both?

Q: I’m a 17 years old girl and want to get a nose surgery to fix my deviated septum, the small bump on my bridge and maybe make the tip of my nose smaller. I was wondering if a doctor can fix all of these problems at once or if it takes more than one surgery. Also, can a cosmetic doctor fix my medical problem (deviated septum) or do I need a certain type of a doctor to fix the medical problems and another to make my nose prettier? My nose isn’t really big or ugly but I just feel insecure about it.

A: Addressing both the functional issues of septal deviation and nasal obstruction, while also reshaping and improving the appearance of the nose, is commonly done during septorhinoplasty.  Seeking out a rhinoplasty specialist will ensure the best cosmetic and functional result.
