If your pinched nasal tip is causing you to have trouble breathing through your nose, the surgery to correct it will be called functional rhinoplasty. This is because it’s being done to aid in the functionality of your nose. Cosmetic rhinoplasty is purely aesthetic, but functional rhinoplasty is performed to alleviate negative symptoms (but can also be aesthetic).
Many healthcare companies will partially cover functional procedures, so if you’re having functional rhinoplasty to correct a pinched nasal tip deformity, your surgery may be less expensive. Check with your healthcare provider to find out more.
