Functional rhinoplasty is mainly done for nasal blockage where as aesthetic rhinoplasty is mainly aimed to improve the shape of the nose.
Lots of NHS hospitals are finding it difficult to get funding approved for purely aesthetic rhinoplasty these days.

Aesthetic rhinoplasty addresses the appearance (=mainly the outside of the nose) and functional rhinoplasty addresses breathing problems (=mainly the inside of the nose). In practice these two are often combined in one operation.
