How to Treat Deviated Septum
If you have a deviated septum, you know that it can create problems which run far deeper than the cosmetic.
Many people with deviated septum are prone to breathing issues, sleep disorders, and infections as a result of blocked airways.
The only permanent treatment for a deviated septum is a surgical procedure known as septal surgery, or septoplasty. Septoplasty can be performed in conjunction with a larger cosmetic procedure, or it can be done independently with little to no effect on your outward appearance.
In septoplasty your surgeon carefully resets the bone that defines the midline of your nose, creating a symmetrical placement that heals straight. For athletes and other active people, a septoplasty can open an entirely new airway and provide better stamina; for everyone else, it’s simply more comfortable.
