It’s no fun living with a deviated septum. Patients who suffer from this structural damage to the nose often feel like they always have a head cold, as their nose is constantly stuffed up. They also have a tendency to snore at night, causing it to be difficult to sleep for both them and their partner. Frequent nose bleeds and trouble breathing are just a few additional side effects that these patients might experience. However, many Orange County patients with a deviated septum don’t know what to do about it. It is the most commonly misunderstood structural issue of the face, and many patients wrongly assume they will need a rhinoplasty to fix it.
At his Newport Beach practice, Dr. Kevin Sadati offers patients the medical procedure that they both need and want. The septoplasty procedure is a surgery designed specifically to address fixing the deviated portion of the nasal septum. The result of this surgery provides patients with physical relief from all of the negative symptoms they have been experiencing. This is a medical surgery, not a cosmetic surgery. Some patients want or require additional work done to the aesthetic features of their nose, and for these patients the septorhinoplasty is an option. The septorhinoplasty procedure combines the septoplasty with a rhinoplasty, bringing both physical relief and improvement to the nose’s appearance.
As each patient is dealing with a different degree of deviation in their septum, each septoplasty procedure is performed differently. Some cases require Dr. Sadati to use a closed technique while others require an open surgical technique. For some patients, the answer lies in removing the deviated portion completely. Other patients will have the deviated portion taken out, reshaped and placed back in the nose again. Dr. Sadati will go over your specific, customized surgical plan during a consultation appointment.
Patients often come to Dr. Sadati for this procedure because they know his revision rate is low, and they know he understands that this is the medical procedure necessary to fix this structural issue. Dr. Sadati not only knows how to beautify the nose, he knows how it works inside and out. If you are suffering from the endless symptoms associated with the deviated septum, now is the time to get your life back. When the surgery is complete, you will sleep better, breathe better and feel as you were given a whole new life to live.
