Healthy noses smell better: our range of treatments

While functional rhinoplasty aims to treat breathing difficulties and other health problems related to the nasal structure, aesthetic rhinoplasty focuses on improving the external appearance of the nose. We can address both aspects independently or in combination.


A thorough medical history is the cornerstone for the success of a nose operation. This is about much more than just medical facts. We take the time to understand your wishes, medical history and specific requirements. A comprehensive examination of your nasal structure and respiratory tract and a detailed discussion of your aesthetic goals enable us to develop a tailor-made surgical plan.

Functional corrections

Functional rhinoplasty aims to correct problems such as obstructed nasal breathing caused by a deviated nasal septum, enlarged turbinates, or other structural irregularities. The Profilance service catalogue includes the following:

  • Minimally invasive sinus surgery: Sinus surgery: e.g. for chronic sinusitis or to remove polyps
  • Septoplasty: Correction of the nasal septum to improve air passage
  • Turbinoplasty/Conchoplasty: Reduction of the nasal turbinates to facilitate breathing
  • Revision procedures: Corrections following previous operations to optimize function and form

Aesthetic corrections

A harmonious nose shape can strengthen self-confidence and improve mental well-being. Aesthetic rhinoplasty is often desired to improve facial proportions or to address dissatisfaction with the shape of the nose. These procedures can also be combined with functional corrections to optimize both appearance and respiratory function. Our aesthetic nose corrections include:

  • Nasal tip correction: Fine-tuning the tip of the nose to improve the profile
  • Nose bridge modelling: Smoothing or lifting the bridge of the nose for a harmonious overall appearance

Your health, safety, and satisfaction are our top priorities in our practice. We will guide you through the entire process – from the initial consultation to aftercare – to ensure you are delighted with the results.

We carry out smaller operations directly in our policlinic. For more extensive procedures, we treat our patients in renowned clinics in Zurich, such as the Limmat Clinic, the Bethanien Clinic and the Pyramid Clinic.
