Across the country, people suffer every day from painful, irritating symptoms caused by a deviated septum. For those in Irvine deviated septum symptoms can include trouble breathing, nosebleeds, chronic sinus infections and sleep troubles. Partners often complain that the patient snores, and patients often find themselves to be feeling like they are constantly recovering from a cold. The problem is, most people assume that a nasal septum is fixed by a rhinoplasty and do not feel that their nose needs aesthetic improvement. Truth be told a septoplasty is the procedure that fixes this issue for patients.
For those in the Irvine area, there is one clear choice for a surgeon to perform a septoplasty. Dr. Kevin Sadati is a board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in nasal surgeries.
He recognizes that, for some patients, a septoplasty is all that is required to fix the misalignment in the nasal cavities. However, he also sits down and discusses a variety of different options with the patient. For instance, some patients want to improve nasal function and nasal appearance. For those patients, the option of a septorhinoplasty is available to them.
The septoplasty on its own is a relatively simple procedure. It takes about an hour to complete the procedure, and patients are often pleased to find out that the recovery is easy. There are no external scars after the surgery is complete. It is important that patients recognize that while the symptoms associated with this nasal issue can be treated, the only way to cure them is by fixing the septum itself. To find out more about your options and to discuss a plan with the surgeon, set up a free consultation with Dr. Sadati today. Before you know it, you will be sleeping well and breathing better.
