Question:
What is an adenoidectomy and can it be performed during rhinoplasty?

Answer:
An adenoidectomy is a procedure in which the adenoid tissue, similar to tonsil tissue, at the back of the nose is removed to improve breathing through the nose. This procedure is most commonly performed in children due to adenoid enlargement or recurrent infection. It is not as common in adults, but can be performed during a rhinoplasty depending on the skill set and comfort level of your surgeon. You should discuss this with your surgeon during consultation.
