Septoplasty: Your Fix for Deviated Septum

What is A deviated Septum?

The nasal septum is the part of the nose that splits it into two halves. It is made of bone and cartilage and is covered by a mucous membrane. Ideally, the septum should be in the middle of the nose, giving support to the nose's structure and nasal passage.

Deviated Septum Impact:More than Just a Crooked Nose

A deviated or crooked septum can have a more significant impact than just cosmetic concerns. It can lead to:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Facial pain
  • Headaches
  • Nosebleeds
  • Postnasal drip
  • Sinus pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Snoring

Some folks are born with a deviated septum, while others get it from injuries or accidents. Whether it's from birth or life's bumps, a deviated septum can be a bother.

How Septoplasty Works

The Fix - What Happens during Septoplasty?

Using either general or local anesthesia, the structure of the cartilage and bone is modified, the mucous membrane is repositioned, and soft packing or splints are employed to safeguard the nasal tissue while it heals.
