The Best Deviated Septum Reconstruction in Los Angeles
The two chambers of your nose are separated by the septum, which is made up of cartilage and bone. When the septum is shifted towards one side, this is referred to as a ‘deviated septum.’ The deviated septum can be caused by trauma or you may simply be born with it. Regardless of the cause, the treatment is the same, which is septoplasty surgery to straighten the deviated portion. A deviated septum may be responsible for a variety of nasal and sinus symptoms, including nasal congestion, chronic sinus symptoms, recurrent sinus infections, snoring and sleep apnea, chronic problems with nosebleeds, pain in the nose, headaches, and fatigue.
Symptoms of Deviated Septum
Patients presenting to our practice with a suspected deviated septum typically have symptoms related to difficulty breathing from the nose. These can include loud snoring, frequent troublesome postnasal drip, chronic cough, sinus pressure headaches, facial pain
and pressure, bad breath with constant mouth breathing, difficulty sleeping with episodes of
‘apnea’ or gasping for air. They also frequently complain of difficulty exercising and constant
Treatment of Deviated Septum
At Westside Sinus, our team of Board Certified Experts have performed thousands of minimally invasive septoplasty procedures in the office and operating room setting. The procedure takes approximately 45-60 minutes and is done through a small incision inside the nose. There are no incisions on the outside skin and there is rarely any packing placed.
Patients are able to breathe well that same day! Recovery takes about 72 hours with normal activity resumed within one week or less. While septoplasty should not change the outside appearance of the nose, cosmetic enhancements may also be done in conjunction with septoplasty with a procedure called ‘septorhinoplasty.’ With Dual Board Certification in Facial Plastic Surgery and Sinus Relief, our practice frequently addresses all these needs in a single session.
