If you suffer from nasal obstruction, or difficulty breathing through your nose, then a septoplasty may be the answer to your problem. The septum is the dividing wall between the right and left side of your nose. The septum can be deviated (crooked) from birth or as a result of trauma to the nose, and this deviation blocks nasal breathing and can contribute to snoring. A septoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure done through the natural nostril openings using an endoscope and small instruments where the deviated portions of the septum are removed so you can breathe your best. There are no visible cuts, incisions, or changes in appearance. It has very little recovery time and is highly effective.
The most important factor in recommending a septoplasty is patient selection. Nasal obstruction can be a multifactorial problem that arises from a deviated septum, inferior turbinate hypertrophy, nasal valve collapse, nasal polyps , or some combination of these problems. Fixing only one problem when there are many will not significantly improve nasal breathing. With so many complicated causes of nasal obstruction you should seek the expertise of a Rhinologist like Dr. Kuperan who has extensive experience performing all procedures to relieve nasal obstruction, including septoplasty.
CONTACT A NOSE AND SINUS EXPERT, TODAY FOR YOUR SEPTOPLASTY EVALUATION
Septoplasty at Houston Advanced Nose & Sinus is a unique experience for three reasons. First, every procedure is performed using the latest technology at our state-of-the-art facility by Dr. Kuperan who is one of the few fellowship certified nose and sinus experts in all of Texas. Second, the procedure is done using an endoscope (small camera) in the nose that allows for superior visualization of the entire septum so the deviation is completely corrected. Many other practices that offer septoplasty use outdated technology like a headlight that hinders visualization of deeper deviations resulting in continued nasal obstruction. Third, we offer first-class post procedure recovery suites so you can wake up peacefully refreshed and get back to your day quickly and efficiently.
