Septoplasty is a nasal operation typically done through the patient’s nostrils without any external incisions. It is aimed to improve breathing and correct a deviated septum. Dr. Monica Tadros is an expert in septoplasty, providing various benefits to those with nasal obstruction due to septal deviation.
A basic septoplasty, also known as septal reconstruction, corrects the deviated portions of cartilage and bone and realigns these structures in the anatomic midline with no external change in the shape of the nose.
What is a Deviated Septum?
Nasal septal deviation is a serious issue that can significantly impact your quality of life. A deviated septum implies that the septal cartilage component, septal bone component, or both are crooked. When this occurs, the nasal airway is narrowed, affecting your breathing.
A deviated septum's origin can ultimately be anything that may have caused the septal cartilage or bone to grow off course. Some of the major causes of this health condition are:
- A congenitally inherited predisposition
- Uterine development
- Trauma during childbirth
- Early nasal trauma that leads to a shift of the bony growth plate
Symptoms of a Deviated Septum
The most common signs of a deviated septum are:
- Blocked nostril(s). Obstruction will make it difficult for you to breathe through the nostril or nostrils.
- Frequent nosebleeds. The risk of nosebleeds increases when the surface of your nasal septum becomes dry.
- Facial pain. It is believed that severe cases of a deviated septum can cause one-sided facial pain. It occurs when surfaces within the nose touch and cause pressure.
- Snoring during sleep. Noisy breathing during sleep may be caused by swelling of the intranasal tissues.
- Awareness of the nasal cycle. The nasal cycle is when nasal airflow is greater in one nostril than the other. The greater airflow nostril shifts between left and right over time. The nasal cycle is normal, but being aware of it can indicate a nasal obstruction.
- Sleeping on a particular side. If one nasal passage is narrowed, some people prefer to sleep on a particular side to optimize breathing through the nose.
