Does rhinoplasty help with snoring?

Some of my Houston rhinoplasty patients admit to snoring at night during their initial consultation.  Snoring is usually due to vibrations of the soft palate and base of tongue during sleep.  These can intensify with patients having difficulty breathing through their nose or mouth breathers at night.  Nasal airway obstruction may be due to a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates, or nasal valve obstruction.  During rhinoplasty, these issues may be corrected with septoplasty, turbinate reduction, or nasal valve repair with spreader grafts.  This may assist with nasal breathing at night and reduce or correct snoring.
