It is common practice for Orange residents to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful California climate while breathing in fresh air so vital to a healthy life. However, there are many people who have difficulty taking advantage of these opportunities because they have a deviated septum, possibly aggravated by an enlarged turbinate, that blocks a nasal passage. Fortunately, there is a way to correct this issue. The septoplasty is a surgical procedure which straightens the crooked septum, clearing the nasal passage for easier air intake.
Orange Septoplasty Procedure
There is a good chance you have enjoyed dancing under the summertime evening sky at the Hart Park Band Shell or walking the paths through some of the area parks to enjoy nature in Orange. These simple pleasures are not so pleasurable when you have difficulty breathing or are subjected to frequent sinus infections, two symptoms of a deviated septum and enlarged turbinate. Constant breathing problems degrade the quality of life, making it difficult to be active and to get a good night’s sleep. People also become mouth breathers which lead to “cotton mouth” and heavy snoring.
Structural issues in the nose that are creating breathing and sinus problems can be corrected with Orange septoplasty surgery in which the septum is straightened. A turbinectomy is the name of the procedure in which an enlarged turbinate is reduced in size. The turbinate is tissue in the nose that humidifies and cleanses the air taken in while breathing. It tends to grow larger to fill space in the nasal cavity that is opposite to the one narrowed by the deviated septum. The septoplasty and the turbinectomy can be done at the same time. If the deviated septum created a hump in the nasal bridge, it is also possible to have septoplasty and rhinoplasty surgeries done at the same time.
Dr. Tavoussi started the Newport Beach OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique so he could provide clients with cosmetic and non-cosmetic procedures that improve the quality of life. The septoplasty is an outpatient procedure that is delivered with the same holistic approach to health and beauty that Dr. Mohsen Tavoussi applies to every procedure he does in Orange County. Though the septoplasty is a non-cosmetic procedure, he understands that feeling good about yourself is not simply a matter of external beauty.
Orange Septoplasty Process
The septoplasty process begins with a consultation and an evaluation of the structure of the nasal passages. Once it is determined the septoplasty is the right procedure, you can depend on getting the highest quality of clinic care and support before, during and after the surgery. Too many Orange people live with a breathing problem that can be corrected, and you should not be one of them.
