Deviated Septum Surgery Procedure

Septoplasty Los Angeles - Deviated Septum Surgery Beverly Hills

Many patients wonder if they have a deviated septum, especially if they have problems breathing out of one side of their nose on a regular basis. Luckily, we provide the best deviated septum surgery Beverly Hills has to offer. The septum is the piece of cartilage that divides the nose in the middle. If there is a deviation present, it may cause problems breathing out of that side which is narrowed. Some patients have an ā€œSā€ shaped septum with deviations on both sides, leading to difficulty breathing through both nostrils. The only way to know for certain is after a thorough history and physical exam.

By using a headlight and special tool, we are able to look inside the nose and assess the septum. It is a painless procedure that takes less than a minute. Following the exam, we can go over a plan on how to correct the problem. If there is a septal deviation present, this is treated with a septoplasty. A small incision is made inside the nose, so that there is no visible scar. The deviated portion of the cartilage is isolated and either removed or shifted back into place to correct the breathing problems. Dissolvable sutures are used, and there is no uncomfortable nasal packing afterwards.

This procedure is typically covered by insurance with proper pre-authorization. When you come in for a consultation, all of these issues can be addressed so that you are well informed of the plan. We want to make sure all of your questions are answered so that you are comfortable with your decision. Our goal is to have you breathing better out of your nose so that you can get back to enjoying your life.

Occasionally, patients also want the outside appearance of their nose to change if they are undergoing surgery. A rhinoplasty can be combined with a septoplasty if it is indicated. Please see the Rhinoplasty and Functional Rhinoplasty pages for further information.

+ About Deviated Septum Surgery

Septoplasty Surgery Process

The nasal septum is the thin structure that separates the two sides of the nose. In case, it's not exactly in the middle of the nose, it is said to be deviated. A deviated septum may be caused by a simple variation in the normal structure or because of broken nose. In a nose deviated septum, the nostrils get displaced to one side of the nose. This may make one nasal passage smaller. A narrowing of the nasal passageway threatens the drainage of sinus secretions passing through the nose. This may cause infection. People having allergic rhinitis are at greater risk as their passageways have already been narrowed by swollen membranes lining them. This may lead to acute or chronic sinusitis.
