The most common problem in recent times is nasal septum deviation! The nasal septum is all of the bone and cartilage structures that serve as a wall between the two nostrils of your nose, which is at the exact focal point of your face and is the midline of your nose.
If the nasal septum has any kind of curvature or is in the wrong position, your healthy breathing will not occur. Your breathing is essential to your overall body health. Therefore, your breathing problems that occur in cases of nasal septum deviation do cause complaints about your breathing and harm your whole body’s health.
What Problems Does Nasal Septum Deviation Cause?
The most prominent nasal septum deviation symptoms are nasal congestion and breathing problems. These problems occur during your cold if you have mild nasal septum deviation.
Health problems caused by nasal septum deviation include nasal congestion, snoring, sleep apnea, congestion in your eustachian tube, fluid accumulation in your ears, and headaches. You may also experience constant bleeding from your nose and a runny nose.
Nasal Septum Deviation Surgery
The curve of your nasal septum, which should be thin and straight due to its typical structure, may make breathing difficult or impossible. If the curvature of your septum is curved or in the wrong place, which may cause nasal congestion, surgical intervention is required. During nasal septum deviation surgery, our surgeon basically removes the bone tissues inside your nose that prevent you from breathing or make it difficult to breathe. Our surgeon repositions your existing cartilage tissues by rearranging them accordingly.
Our surgeon generally makes a small incision under your nose and reaches your nasal tissues in septum deviation surgery. With the nasal septum deviation procedure, the septum part that causes your nasal congestion to remove, or our surgeon repairs this part and positions it correctly. Any method you choose during septum deviation surgery will not affect the appearance of your nose from the outside. After the septum deviation surgery, our surgeon closes the incisions with sutures.
