Septoplasty And Snoring Los Angeles

Los Angeles Septoplasty  -

If during your medical evaluation a deviated septum was found to be the cause for your snoring then Dr. Kayem will find it appropriate to correct your nasal breathing using a procedure more commonly known as septoplasty as part of your overall snoring treatment. This will not only improve the quality of your sleep, but your overall health since you will be able to breathe better thus allowing you to participate in more dynamic activities (such as sports) without having that shortness of breath feeling when breathing through your nose.

What is a deviated septum and how does it concern the patient?


First of all, the septum is that “wall” made out of both cartilage and bone that divides each and every nose into two separate chambers (or cavities). Many people suffer from a deviated septum and have no idea about it – this can occur due to a number of reasons – in some cases it might be as simple as a birth defect while in others it occurs due to physical trauma. Nasal obstruction occurs when the deviated septum has a certain severity – in other words, not everyone with a deviated septum requires septoplasty and has nasal obstruction. More to the point, it is imperative to establish whether the upper airway is suffering from any kind of nasal obstruction.

Some of the symptoms linked to nasal obstruction include:

  • Overall difficulty while breathing through the nose (and in some cases the feeling that “not enough air is passing through the lungs while breathing through the nose)
  • Dry membranes (or the feeling that the interior of your nose is constantly dry)
  • Snoring even with over-the-counter anti-snoring solutions
  • Mouth-breathing
  • Headaches

Snoring Los Angeles

Snoring is one of the most common symptoms (and the easiest to spot in some patients as it becomes incredibly annoying in time) and it can be easily treated using septoplasty. This particular procedure will straighten the outline of the nasal septum thus clearing all symptoms that appeared due to nasal obstruction. This particular type of surgery can be performed under both general and local anesthesia and it usually depends on the patient. The procedure itself is simple since it only involves the repositioning of the septum thus opening the nasal airway in the process. Turbinate reduction can be performed at the same time in order to better help with other snoring links. In short, what you need to know about septoplasty is that:

Snoring Treatmnents Los Angeles
  • It has little if any side effects (and contrary to popular belief it does not lead in any way to “black eyes”)
  • The procedure involves little if any discomfort.
  • Septoplasty does not change the overall appearance of your nose. Only if part of rhinoplasty (also known as a nose-job) it will have visible changes on one’s face.
