What Is a Septoplasty?
The procedure known as septoplasty corrects a deviated septum, an issue that may obstruct your breathing. By straightening a septum and clearing the obstruction, your nose is better able to conduct airflow.
Septoplasty with Renew is typically an outpatient procedure. Before your deviated septum procedure, you may be given local or general anesthesia based on what’s best for you.
During your consultation, we will explain the specifics of your obstruction and how septoplasty can clear it. We’ll also discuss the benefits and risks of the procedure.
Signs You May Need a Septoplasty
If your nasal passages are obstructed, you might be experiencing symptoms without even knowing why. The following symptoms may be signs that you have a deviated septum.
- Difficulty breathing normally through your nose
- Being forced to breathe through your mouth
- Nasal pressure
- Sinus infections
- Sleep apnea
- Loud snoring
Diagnosis and Process
Four out of five people have a deviated septum to some extent, though every case does not require surgery. If you’re suffering, contact our Renew team. After you book an appointment, we’ll have a consultation where we’ll determine whether your nasal obstruction is caused by a deviated septum. After that, we’ll discuss whether a septoplasty is the right option for you.
