Deviated Septum Surgery
The cartilage structure that separates the nose into two nasal passages is the septum. It is a vital component for both the function and shape of your nose. When the septum is damaged due to trauma, health conditions, cosmetic surgery or drug use, it can impact breathing and the appearance of the nose. To correct a deviated septum, nose surgery is often required. Dr. Lesley Rabach, an expert facial surgeon, at LM Medical NYC offers deviated septum surgery, or septoplasty, at our facilities in Manhattan.
A deviated septum occurs when the septum is bent, crooked or irregular in shape. When this wall of cartilage is not straight, it can affect breathing function and change the appearance of the nose. Correcting a deviated septum through surgery is called septoplasty, which only repairs the function of the nose. Rhinoplasty can also repair a deviated septum, repairing the function and reshaping the nose.
Septoplasty or Rhinoplasty?
If you have a deviated septum, you can undergo either septoplasty or rhinoplasty to repair the crooked or damaged septum. If breathing function or treating sinus issues is your main concern, septoplasty can achieve the results you desire. For those who also desire a new shape to their nose, deviated septum repair surgery can be performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty.
Dr. Lesley Rabach is a highly experienced facial plastic surgeon who can perform deviated septum surgery or rhinoplasty with a deviated septum repair. Dr. Lesley is double board certified in facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. Her extensive expertise in both restoring function and improving the form of the nose have earned her an excellent reputation for rhinoplasty and septoplasty results.
