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 facility 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.

If you have a deviated septum that needs repair, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We offer both septoplasty and rhinoplasty to restore function and improve the aesthetics of the nose. Contact our clinic in Greenwich Village to schedule your personal consultation with skilled facial surgeon Dr. Lesley Rabach.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
