The majority of people have noses that allow them to breath with ease. However, there are many individuals who have malformed or damaged inner-nose tissue and cartilage that obstructs their nasal cavity and hinders their breathing.
In these instances, septoplasty can be performed to restore the patient’s normal breathing function. Septoplasty is the correction and modification of the cartilage of the septum, located in the nose. The procedure will straighten any deviated sections of the septum obstructing the nasal cavity, which will allow the patient to breathe normally with no discomfort.
If you are experiencing any difficulty breathing as a result of an internal nasal obstruction, contact Paramount Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation for your septoplasty procedure. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Keith Jeffords will help to restore your quality of life.
