Abstract

Rhinoplasty surgeons inevitably encounter therapeutic considerations in managing their patients, and a thorough understanding of nasal function, as well as of disorders of the nose and sinuses, is requisite for positive clinical outcomes. Patients suffering from allergic rhinitis are not precluded from undergoing rhinoplasty, whereas other disease processes may warrant an otolaryngologic evaluation before proceeding with surgery. A thorough medical history and examination elucidate sinonasal disease conditions that may not improve after septorhinoplasty but potentially could respond to pharmacologic therapy.
