While Dr. Kevin Sadati is largely known as a cosmetic surgeon who works with patients across Orange County and beyond, he also can complete medical procedures for people who have structural issues in their nose. One such procedure is the septoplasty surgery. The septoplasty is designed for Newport Beach patients who have a deviated septum, and want to improve their quality of life.
What is the Septoplasty Surgery?
The septoplasty surgery is a medical procedure that is designed to correct a deviated septum. A deviated septum can result in uncomfortable symptoms for the patient, ranging from difficulty sleeping to trouble breathing to excessive snoring. The septoplasty procedure corrects the deviation and ultimately improves the quality of life for the patient. While many people wrongly assume that a rhinoplasty procedure will fix their deviated septum, Dr. Kevin Sadati wants his patients to know that it is only the septoplasty that can provide them with the physical relief that they are seeking.
Who is a Candidate for the Septoplasty?
Anyone who has a deviated septum and wants to alleviate the symptoms associated with it is a good candidate for this procedure. As the septoplasty is a major surgical operation, it’s important that every patient is in good general health prior to the operation. Dr. Kevin Sadati typically requires each patient to get a clean bill of health from their physician before he performs this procedure in his operating room. Patients who have constant nose bleeds, difficulty sleeping, trouble breathing or problems with snoring all may be qualified candidates for the septoplasty procedure.
What are the Options for Cosmetic Improvement with the Septoplasty?
In some patients, a deviated septum can result in a bump or hump on the nasal bridge. This happens most often when a patient has a deviated septum as a result of an injury. For patients who want to remove that bump or hump, Dr. Kevin Sadati offers the septorhinoplasty procedure. This unique combination surgery not only addresses the structural issues in the nose, but also provides the patient with the cosmetic improvement that they are looking for. Patients should note that the standard septoplasty procedure does not provide cosmetic improvement as it is designed to only address structural issues within the nose.
Many people are dealing with inconvenient symptoms, such as snoring or difficulty breathing, and do not even realize that they have a deviated septum.
