Our expert says:
Any functional work to the nose done by an ENT surgeon, will be covered by a medical aid, providing your plan allows for this. It is a functional procedure, not a cosmetic one, as the aim is to allow for better breathing. I suggest you start by seeing an ENT, and discuss what may be required. This can only be done after an examination. You may require some form of cosmetic work, best performed by a plastic surgeon, or an ENT with a special interest in Facial Plasic work. Sometimes these procedures may be performend under the same general anaesthetic.
Discuss this with your doctors.
