Functional Nasal Surgery


  • Improves various medical conditions associated with the nose and sinuses
  • Dr. Zuliani performs less-invasive endoscopic nasal surgery to prevent external scars and reduce downtime.

Surgery for Nasal and Sinus Conditions

Surgery of the nose is not always performed for cosmetic benefits. In many cases, nasal surgery is needed to help correct defects and medical conditions associated with the internal structures of the nose. Dr. Zuliani perfoms functional nasal surgery to help patients live more comfortably with a properly functioning nose and sinuses.

“My nose looks incredibly better and as for my breathing, it’s the best its ever been. His time spent explaining everything before the procedure made me so confident going in.” – Patient

Functional nasal surgery can be a very life-changing procedure and often improves such nasal functions as breathing. Using the endoscopic method, Dr. Zuliani is able to offer a minimally invasive solution that requires less downtime than traditional nasal surgery.

What conditions can be treated with functional nasal surgery?

Functional nasal surgery can be used to address concerns such as:

  • Chronic rhinosinusitis or swelling of the nose and sinuses
  • Recurrent infections
  • Sinus infections that spread beyond the nose
  • Nasal polyps
  • Poor sense of smell
  • Uneven or crooked nasal septum
  • Internal and external nasal valve collapse

How is functional nasal surgery performed?

Your functional nasal surgery will be performed under local or general anesthesia. Dr. Zuliani will perform this treatment onsite at Zuliani Facial Aesthetics in Bloomfield Hills or at an accredited surgery center.

When performing your nasal surgery, Dr. Zuliani will use an endoscope (telescoping camera) and special telescoping tools to treat the underlying issue without having to make external incisions. Each condition will be treated differently according to the specific issue.

Dr. Zuliani will carefully observe your condition to determine the best approach for your nasal surgery. He will outline the specific details of your procedure and will be able to answer any questions you may have during your private consultation.

What can be expected after functional nasal surgery?

Functional nasal surgery with Dr. Zuliani often provides patients with incredible benefits relative to the functioning of the nose and sinuses. Recovery will vary based on the specific methods used during your procedure. Each case is highly personalized, based on each patient’s unique needs.
