Correcting Nasal Functions and Problems
Using Nose Surgery to Fix Problems
Your nasal function can be improved with nose surgery
Factors that impact the function of your nose
Several factors can impact nasal function. Some of these factors include:
- Deviated septum
- Mucosal swelling
- Enlarged turbinates
- Nasal polyps
- Structural problems.
Any one of the items above can impact an individual's ability to breathe, sleep, or conduct daily activities. Some of the factors may also contribute to headaches. While some of these conditions can be improved through nose surgery, others cannot.
Septoplasty - Repairing the deviated septum
If you have a deviated septum, the cartilage dividing the nose into two nasal passages is crooked. The crooked cartilage can interfere with breathing and draining of the sinuses. In many cases nose surgery is recommended to correct the septum, and improve breathing. This type of nose surgery is called septoplasty. Septoplasty is a reconstructive plastic surgery procedure. When the septum interferes with either of the nasal cavities, septoplasty is usually recommended.
