Therapy or cosmetic?: You have a choice to make! both plastic surgeons and ENT surgeons perform nasal procedures/nose jobs. Check your local referral network and visit the surgeons websites and office. View before and after photos from your surgeon. Medical diagnoses such as a deviated septum and associated breathing problems are occasionally covered benefit. Check your policy.
