Septoplasty at Frederick Breathe Free - A Solution for Deviated Septum

What is a Deviated Septum?

The nasal septum is a crucial part of the nose that divides it into two halves. Comprised of bone and cartilage covered by a mucous membrane, the septum ideally should be centrally positioned, providing structural support to the nose and nasal passage.

Deviated Septum Impact: Beyond Cosmetic Concerns

A deviated or crooked septum extends beyond cosmetic worries, causing:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Facial pain
  • Headaches
  • Nosebleeds
  • Postnasal drip
  • Sinus pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Snoring
Comparison: Normal vs. Deviated Nasal Septum

The Fix - What Happens During Septoplasty?

Septoplasty involves modifying the cartilage and bone structure, repositioning the mucous membrane, and utilizing soft packing or splints to protect the nasal tissue during the healing process. The procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia.

Recovery After Septoplasty

After the septoplasty procedure, you'll be monitored for a few hours before heading home. It's advisable to have someone stay with you for a day to ensure no complications arise.

Following the doctor's guidance and managing pain effectively will help you return to normal activities quickly.
