Nasal Obstruction Correction Newport Beach, CA
Nasal obstruction correction surgery is a medical procedure that treats breathing problems involving nasal air passages. Because of genetics or injury, such as nasal bone fracture, some patients may experience impeded nasal airflow. Frequently, asymmetrical nasal passages or structural flaws can lead to blockage. In some instances, patients may also need partial removal of enlarged tissues, or turbinates, to improve the airway. These nasal obstructions can lead to several adverse health conditions, including nosebleeds, headaches, sinus infections, and worsening of allergies and breathing problems.

What is Nasal Obstruction Correction?
Prior to the procedure, Dr. Sajjadian meets with all of his nasal obstruction correction patients to thoroughly evaluate their initial condition and determine the best course of action to treat their unique concerns. Nasal obstruction correction procedures may include septoplasty, turbinate removal, correction of nasal fracture or deviated septum, or a combination of these procedures.
During the procedure, Dr. Sajjadian creates small incisions within the nostrils or across the skin between the nostrils called the columella. Next, he gently straightens a deviated septum and/or surgically extracts enlarged nasal tissues to improve nasal air flow. If needed, he also corrects nasal fractures that have healed in a deviated position. Once the nasal passages have been cleared, Dr. Sajjadian closes the incisions and dresses the nose with gauze.
Nasal obstruction correction typically takes one hour to complete, with most patients able to return home after the procedure. Following nasal obstruction correction, patients may experience slight bruising on the nose, upper lip and eye area that subsides within a few days. Dr. Sajjadian recommends elevating the head and applying ice packs to the nose to minimize bruising and swelling. He also suggests patients administer nasal irrigation sprays several times a day once nasal dressings are removed to promote a healthy recovery.
