A Laguna Hills septoplasty may be the right decision for patients who constantly struggle with breathing problems, often snore at night, or stop breathing for periods while sleeping, which is known as sleep apnea. At OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach, we can address these concerns with a full consultation and a septoplasty if needed. This procedure can address the misaligned cartilage found in the center of the nose that separates the nostrils..
Laguna Hills Septoplasty for Deviated Septum
While a slightly deviated septum is a common occurrence for most people, a severely deviated septum can make one nostril noticeably larger than the other. This can cause airflow to be blocked through the other nostril, and individuals may complain of having a stuffy nose most of the time. They may try to clear this up with allergy medication or over-the-counter nasal sprays in Laguna Hills, but find that nothing seems to help. Others may find that they suffer from bloody noses or headaches frequently.
Any of these concerns can be addressed with our skilled surgeon, Dr. Tavoussi, who sees patients from all over the Orange County area, including Laguna Hills, in our facility. His thoughtful manner combined with his knowledge of numerous cosmetic surgery techniques will immediately set patients’ minds at ease and give them the confidence to proceed. He will perform a full evaluation combined with our digital computer technology, which can take a current picture of a patient and show him or her how surgical results would appear.
Laguna Hills residents will find that the same-day surgery center we use for this procedure is conveniently located in nearby Huntington Beach. The Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center has state-of-the-art surgical suites as well as highly trained and experienced anesthesia staff and ACLS-certified nursing staff in both the operating rooms and recovery areas. Patients will be able to go home a few hours following the surgery but will be instructed to rest for the first couple of days.
Improved Airways after Laguna Hills Septoplasty
Patients will need to see the doctor a day or two following a Laguna Hills septoplasty. Dr. Tavoussi will inspect the surgical site. At a later appointment, he will remove any external sutures or internal splints that were used. Patients may feel stuffy for a few weeks, which is normal. However, within a few months, individuals will find that they can breathe better, rarely or never snore and have improved the quality of life due to fewer headaches and better sleep patterns.
