Sometimes, people suffer from sleeping issues and breathing problems for so long they don’t even realize that life can be so much better. Sometimes, the fix is a very simple one. Often times, many patients can solve any snoring, sleeping or breathing problems they have simply by taking the time to fix their deviated septum. The problem is, many people in Mission Viejo think that the only way to fix this nasal issue is to have a rhinoplasty procedure. However, that is not true. The procedure that fixes this issue in patients is called a septoplasty.
A septoplasty is a specialized procedure that should be performed by a facial plastic surgeon that focuses on nasal issues.
Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified cosmetic surgeon, has been working with this procedure for decades now and knows exactly what needs to be done in order to correct the alignment issues along the midline cartilage in the nose. However, sometimes this septum issues cause patients to be displeased with the appearance of their nose. For patients who want to improve not only their nasal function but also the image of their nose may consider having a septorhinoplasty procedure.
Patients need to take the time to research their ailments and talk with the surgeon to decide if the septum is the overlying issue. Other parts of the nose contribute to proper breathing techniques as well, such as highly-functioning nasal turbinates. During a consultation, the surgeon will help the patient recognize what it is that is causing the issues with their nose’s functionality.
