Septoplasty, is a corrective surgical procedure done to straighten a deviated nasal septum – the nasal septum being the partition between the two nasal cavities. Ideally, the septum should run down the center of the nose
Normal Septum VS Deviated Septum
A deviated septum is a condition in which the nasal septum, the bone and cartilage that divide the nasal cavity of the nose in half is significantly off center, or crooked, making breathing difficult. Most people have some sort of imbalance in the size of their breathing passages. In fact, estimates indicate that 80% of people, most unknowingly, have some sort of misalignment to their nasal septum.
Types of septal deviation
Improved breathing – overall breathing function is greatly improved since the nasal passages are opened up.
Better sleep quality – reshaping a crooked septum not only improves airflow while you're awake, but also reduces or eliminates snoring and/or sleep apnea and improves the overall quality of your sleep
