Beverly Hills is a beautiful place full of amazing outdoor adventures and sports. However, sometimes, these adventures can lead to injury. And the nose is often the unfortunate recipient of said injury. Many men and women who have sustained an injury to their nose come to Eos Rejuvenation to see Dr. Nima for help.
Not only does the nose often experience a break in the bone, but sometimes injury can cause damage to the internal septum.
What is a Deviated Septum?
A deviated septum occurs when the thin walls of cartilage between the nostrils become displaced to one side. This condition disturbs the symmetry of the nostrils and causes one nostril to look larger than the other.
Dr. Nima of Eos Rejuvenation can correct a deviated septum through septoplasty. This procedure repairs the damaged cartilage and can correct the aesthetics of the nostrils – not to mention it allows patients relief from their breathing problems, swelling, and bleeding of the nose.
Injuries to the Nose Can Cause a Deviated Septum
Men and women in Beverly Hills who participate in contact sports, or who have incurred an injury to the nose in some other way, such as an auto accident or falling down, can sometimes experience a deviated septum where the nasal septum shifts out of position.
A deviated septum can be prevented from injury by taking certain precautions:
- Always wear proper headgear, face masks, or helmets when participating in your sport
- Wearing a seat belt at all times when in a vehicle
If you experience an injury to the nose that causes a deviated septum, Dr. Nima can repair it through a septoplasty surgery.
Septoplasty to Correct Deviated Septum
To perform a septoplasty, Dr. Nima will first make a very small incision inside the nostril. By keeping the incision small, Dr. Nima is able to minimize scarring. However, he will still have adequate access to the cartilage inside the nose that needs to be corrected. He will move the septum back into the center of the nose. If needed, he will also remove the deviated portion of the cartilage. He will then close the incision with sutures that will naturally dissolve.
Many patients often choose to have a rhinoplasty during their septoplasty to modify cartilage and reshape the nose to a more aesthetically pleasing shape. If you wish to undergo this combination surgery, be sure to let Dr. Nima know during your initial consultation as he will need to verify whether or not a rhinoplasty is advisable.
Beverly Hills patients receiving septoplasty at Eos Rejuvenation will enjoy easier breathing immediately. Improved stamina and better sleep will also be a quick reward after your procedure.
