Insurances pay for functional surgeries. When patients have nasal obstruction due to a deviated nasal septum or turbinate hypertrophy, they may need nasal surgery to relieve their symptoms. Repair of nasal fractures are also frequently covered by insurance. Most insurances do not cover cosmetic procedures. Most patients prefer to have their functional and cosmetic surgeries to be performed at the same time shortening the anesthesia and recovery time.
