People are always on the go in the City of Angeles because Los Angeles is filled with great destinations and has an active nightlight. Most people take breathing for granted, but those with breathing problems often find themselves limiting their activities. One of the top causes of breathing problems is a deviated septum in which the tissue dividing the nasal cavity is crooked and creates a narrow passageway through which breathing is more difficult. For this reason, Dr. Tavoussi’s OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique sees many Los Angeles requests for breathing help which comes in the form of a septoplasty procedure.
Los Angeles Septoplasty and Turbinectomy
The deviated septum narrowing a nasal passage because it is crooked is one possible scenario. In many cases, the problem is further complicated when a turbinate enlarges in the larger nasal cavity because there is more room for the tissue to grow. The turbinate is tissue that processes the air breathed in by cleansing and humidifying it. Frequently, Dr. Tavoussi performs a Los Angeles septoplasty and a turbinectomy at the same time, correcting both problems.
The deviated septum is more than an annoyance. It causes restricted airflow, promotes sinus infections and can cause heavy snoring. Sleep is disrupted throughout the night when it is necessary to breathe through the mouth to get enough oxygen, leading to dry mouth. The septoplasty straightens the misshapen or crooked septum, and the Los Angeles turbinectomy reduces the size of the enlarged turbinate blocking air flow. The result is easier breathing which promotes a healthier body and a good night’s rest.
The septoplasty can be combined with other surgeries, including the rhinoplasty procedure and surgery to correct sinus problems. A crooked septum can cause the bridge of the nose to develop a bump which is one reason why a Los Angeles rhinoplasty may be performed at the same time. The physician will do a thorough evaluation of the nose’s structure and consult at length with the patient to determine the desired end result.
