Septoplasty for Deviated
Septum in Beverly Hills

Septoplasty for a Deviated Septum

 

Looking for a quick and easy solution to have a better night’s
sleep? Septoplasty might be the right procedure for you.
Improperly shaped nasal septum, commonly known as
deviated septum, is a common condition that causes various
nasal and health complications. Deviated septum is usually
caused by injury, birth defect, or damage caused by previous
medical procedures. Allure Aesthetic Surgery of Beverly Hills
performs septoplasty to repair deviated parts of the cartilage
and the bone along the septum.

What is Septoplasty?

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes
deviated septum to treat problems caused by nasal
obstruction. This procedure is performed to fix various
symptoms including the following:

  • Quick procedure
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Diminishing taste and smell
  • Snoring
  • Dry mucous membranes
  • Using the mouth to breathe
  • Serious headaches
  • Difficulty using the nose to breathe

Benefits of Septoplasty

  • Fast recovery
  • Nasal obstruction relief
  • Minimum pain and discomfort
  • Normally, there are no external swelling and brushing

Benefits of Septoplasty

It is normal for patients to feel a little pain and discomfort
following a septoplasty, these usually fade away on their own
within a day or two. Other possible risks include the
following:

  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Bruising
  • Excesive bleeging
  • Nerve damage that could cause smelling problems
  • In care cases, the shape of the nose may seem different

What to Expect After the Procedure

Most of our patients at Allure report
significant nasal improvements
within three to six weeks following
the septoplasty. Minimum pain and
discomfort is normal during the
recovery period. Typically, patients
return to work a day or two after
the surgery, but we recommend
patients to refrain from any
strenuous activities for about a
week.

How it works

Most septoplasty for deviated
septum takes about an hour to
complete and may be done under
local or general anesthesia. The two
types of septoplasty procedures are
the traditional procedure, which
involves the open technique, and
the minimally invasive internal
procedure. Both procedures involve
lifting the mucus membrane,
repositioning or removing the bone
or the cartilage that is blocking the
airway, and then replacing the
mucus membrane and stitching it
back in place.

Cost

This procedure is covered by most
major health insurance providers. If
this does not apply to you, the cost
of septoplasty for deviated septum
depends on each patient’s unique
and how complicated the required
procedure is. Feel free to discuss
your concerns about your insurance
plan and costs during your initial
