What Is A Deviated Nasal Septum?
The nasal septum is the wall that separates the nasal cavity into two symmetrical parts. A deviated septum occurs when the thin wall (nasal septum) between the nasal passages shifts to one side. A common condition found in 80% of people, the nasal septum is displaced or deviated, which makes one of the nasal passages smaller and thus makes it difficult for the patient to breathe properly, which causes severe headaches and swelling of the tissues lining the nose. Treatment for a stuffy nose may include medication to reduce swelling. To correct a deviated nasal septum, you will need to undergo surgery, and here we will talk about everything related to the operation.
What Is The Process Of Correcting The Nasal Septum?
In a septoplasty, the nasal septum is realigned so that it is in the middle of your nose. The surgeon may need to cut and remove some parts of your nasal septum before putting it back in the correct position.
