Will Rhinoplasty affect my Singing?

Professional and vocational singers who are interested in rhinoplasty or nose job surgery frequently ask me if nose surgery will change their voice. Rhinoplasty or even septoplasty for a deviated septum should not change the sound or resonance of one’s voice. It should actually improve singing as you should be able to breathe better through your nose while singing after rhinoplasty or septorhinoplasty.

Sinus surgery, where the drainage pathways from the sinuses are opened, can change the resonance of the voice. This is especially true for those patient with chronic sinusitis who may have impacted sinuses or sinuses full of polyps or mucus.
