What Is Septoplasty?

Do you have a deviated septum? The septum is the strip of tissue that divides the nostrils. Ideally the nostrils are equally sized, but often the septum is slightly off center, resulting in a deviated septum. Septoplasty is the surgery to correct problems with the septum. Although most people have some deviation, surgery is only needed for more extreme cases. Signs of a deviated septum include frequent nosebleeds, nasal congestion, noisy breathing during sleep, and dry mouth.

What Is Turbinoplasty?

Turbinates are small structures on the side wall within the nose. They warm and moisturize air as it enters the nose. If the turbinates are enlarged they can block airflow, making it more difficult to breathe. Turbinoplasty, also known as turbinate reduction, resizes the turbinates. Since the turbinates play an important role in your ability to breathe comfortably, it is important to resize them, not remove them completely. Some medications can also shrink the turbinates and improve breathing. Signs of enlarged turbinates include nasal congestion, facial pressure, and mid-facial pain.

What Is Nasal Valve Correction?

Inside of the nose an internal nasal valve helps to regulate airflow. This valve can become damaged or even collapse, resulting in breathing difficulties. A common cause of nasal valve problems is rhinoplasty. A skilled rhinoplasty surgeon will work carefully to balance aesthetic changes with functional considerations to minimize rhinoplasty complications like valve collapse. If you do experience this problem after rhinoplasty, or due to nasal trauma, come see Dr. Sajjadian. As one of the area’s top rhinoplasty surgeons, he has extensive experience performing revision rhinoplasties and nasal obstruction correction surgeries.

What Is Concha Bullosa?

Concha bullosa is a nasal condition that occurs when an air pocket develops within a turbinate in the nose. Concha is another word for turbinate and bullosa refers to the air filled pocket inside of the turbinate. Concha bullosa can lead to recurrent sinusitis or frequent sinus infections.
