Some people have a nasal obstruction that causes breathing difficulties. In fact, this is a common problem associated with the nasal septum and turbinates, elements of the nasal interior. The Aliso Viejo septoplasty procedure can usually correct the breathing issues, giving patients much-needed relief from breathing problems.
Aliso Viejo Septoplasty Deviated Septum Correction
The construction of the inside of the nose is made up of the nasal septum and turbinates. The nasal cavity is divided into two sections by the septum which is made of cartilage and bone. The septum, covered by a thin membrane called the mucosa, should ideally separate the nasal cavity into two equally-sized spaces by running down the center of the nose. Also, inside the nose are found turbinates which warm and moisturize air. The turbinates are close to the septum, but there should be a space between the septum and the turbinates to allow air flow.
The Aliso Viejo septoplasty can correct two of the most common issues associated with the septum and turbinates. A deviated septum is a septum that is not straight. The condition can occur due to genetics, meaning people are born with a deviated septum or injury to the nose in which the septum does not heal straight. The nasal passage is narrowed, making it hard to breathe normally. Turbinates cause problems when they are enlarged, blocking the space where the air is supposed to flow. They can also be misplaced in the nose when the interior nose construction is flawed.

The quality of life is hurt when someone in Orange County has difficulty breathing due to a deviated septum for Aliso Viejo residents. It is often necessary to breathe through the mouth, creating the very uncomfortable dry mouth condition. Obstructed airflow also makes it difficult to sleep well, leading to fatigue. Other health issues associated with the deviated septum include chronic sinusitis, headaches, and frequent nasal bleeding.
Aliso Viejo Septoplasty Procedure
Septoplasty is a common procedure that has a high rate of success, so there is no reason to continue suffering from problems like a deviated septum and enlarged turbinates. The septoplasty procedures in Aliso Viejo can relieve the nasal blockage by straightening the septum through the reshaping of the bone and cartilage, reducing the size of the turbinates, or a combination of both procedures. The surgery can be combined with other procedures like removal of a nasal tumor or sinus surgery.
