Many people in California suffer from the effects of having a deviated septum. Laguna Beach residents are no exception, and the sad truth of the matter is that most patients do not even realize that their lives could be improved greatly simply by fixing their septum. When a septum deviates, a person will likely experience a variety of symptoms such as trouble breathing, trouble sleeping and frequent sinus infections. The deviation of this main cartilage in the nose forces a misalignment of the nasal cavities. If a patient thinks that they may have this issue in their own nose, it is important to contact a facial plastic surgeon as soon as possible. While the symptoms can be treated, they can only be truly cured by a septoplasty procedure.
Most patients are surprised to find out that a septoplasty fixes issues associated with a deviation. Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in this procedure, finds that most patients think a rhinoplasty procedure is required to get their nose back to its normal functions. This can often lead patients to opt out of the surgery, when the fact is a septoplasty is a quick and relatively easy fix that has big payoffs.
The septoplasty procedure lasts just under an hour, and the recovery time is very short.
One major benefit is that there are no external scars, and patients who want to have a nose job done at the same time have the option of a septorhinoplasty. When the surgery is complete, patients are often thrilled to find out that they experience the world in a whole new way while being better rested at the same time.
