Septoplasty PhiladelphiaPublished on September 19, 2016 by Dr. Anthony Corrado
Septoplasty is a nose surgery procedure that has helped many men and women remove obstructions or blockages in the nose that may be making it difficult to breathe through the nose. The Septoplasty procedure is most commonly used to correct the deviated septum–the septum being the wall that divides the nostrils and separates the nasal passages of the cartilage and bone. The deviated septum happens when the cartilage or bone is not straight. These deviations happen sometimes by injury, or other times may be something a patient is born with. Sometimes a crooked septum can make a person feel self-conscious of the aesthetic of their nose as well as the function.
Septoplasty can address and improve nasal obstruction, snoring, sleep apnea, sinusitis, nosebleed, and a crooked nose. The Septoplasty is performed using no visible incisions on the outside of the nose–all septoplasty incisions are made inside in the nose.
