Many men and women all over Beverly Hills suffer from a deviated septum – many of them are just unaware. However, for those who suffer from major symptoms of a deviated septum, life can become restricted and frustrating. A deviated septum can not only cause severe snoring, but it can also reduce stamina when exercising, sleep apnea, and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
When Dr. Nima visits with potential patients for an initial septoplasty consultation in his Beverly Hills office, he’s often surprised to find out that many people have lived with this condition for years because they were unaware of the symptoms. If you think you may be suffering from a deviated septum, keep reading to learn more about the symptoms that are related to this condition.
But First, what is the Septum?
The septum is the piece of cartilage within the nose that creates a division between the two nostrils. For most men and women, the septum is skewed to some degree. However, for those dealing with a severely deviated septum, breathing problems often occur because one side of the septum is narrower than the other. The septum can even be deviated to such a degree that it takes the shape of an “s.” This causes patients to experience difficulty beating out of both nostrils. A septoplasty performed by Dr. Nima can correct this condition.
Symptoms of a Deviated Septum
Many men and women who suffer from a deviated septum unknowingly do so for years until finally seeking relief through a common surgical procedure known as septoplasty. Though this condition can exist without symptoms, people who suffer from more severe forms often experience:
Nosebleeds occur in patients with deviated septum because its surface can become dry more easily. Dr. Nima can reduce your nosebleeds by performing septoplasty in his Beverly Hills clinic.
- Noisy breathing
One of the most common symptoms of a deviated septum is noisy breathing. Oftentimes, parents can identify this symptom in their young children when their noisy breathing does not go away after a cold or other respiratory infection. Dr. Nima can perform septoplasty on patients young and old. If you feel you or your child may be suffering from a deviated septum, don’t hesitate to call his office and schedule a consultation.
- Obstruction of one or both nostrils
Because a deviated septum causes one nostril to be narrower than the other, patients often experience difficulty breathing through both nostrils at the same time. Patients often experience this symptom, even more, when they have a cold or respiratory infection. Septoplasty with Dr. Nima can relieve this condition and help you take those full breaths you’ve been struggling to achieve.
- Facial Pain
Though not all septoplasty patients experience facial pain caused by their deviated septum, many people dealing with a severe form of this condition have a septum that impacts the inside of the nasal wall, which can lead to facial pain. Let Dr. Nima perform septoplasty to reduce your facial pain caused by a deviated septum.
