Pending your concerns and end goals, septoplasty may be appropriate to straighten your deviated septum. While having some deviation of the septum is common, a severe deviated septum can block one side of your nose and reduce airflow, causing difficulty breathing through one or both sides of your nose.
This is a surgery to address nasal blockage that may not be able to be resolved with a simple in-office solution, such as balloon sinuplasty.
During septoplasty, your nasal septum is straightened and repositioned in the middle of your nose.
This is done by trimming, repositioning and replacing cartilage, bone or both.
A simple in-office solution alternative is also available pending your end goals.
“Before my procedure, I had a lot of headaches on a regular basis – I was missing work, not able to participate in my kids lives or family social life and those have gone away. It’s been very life-changing as I got my life back and I am able to fully engage and enjoy the things we like to do as a family.”
