Septoplasty for Deviated Septum in Beverly Hills

Septoplasty for 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

Here are a few benefits of Septoplasty:

Quick procedure
Fast recovery
Nasal obstruction relief
Minimum pain and discomfort
Normally, there are no external swelling and bruising

Risks and Complications

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
Excessive bleeding
Nerve damage that could cause smelling problems
In rare 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 consultation at Allure.
