Dr. Pennington will perform a septoplasty to correct a deviated septum. A deviated septum is a displacement of the bone and cartilage that divides your two nostrils. During a septoplasty, your nasal septum is straightened and repositioned in the middle of your nose.
A deviated septum can affect your airway and breathing, which can lead to serious health problems that may have a significant impact on a patient’s quality of life. Most patients do not realize how much a deviated septum is affecting them until after it is corrected. Many patients find it easier to sleep at night, breathe easier, snore less, and in general feel better.
A significantly deviated septum can also contribute to cosmetic deformities as well and may be paired with a rhinoplasty to improve appearance and airway.
