Rhinoplasty – Deviated Septum – Pennsylvania
If you are experiencing chronic sinus problems or struggle with breathing problems, there is a chance that they are caused by a deviated septum. The septum is the strip of cartilage and skin tissue that separates the left and right nostrils. When it is deviated or damaged, breathing problems can arise. A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can correct any breathing problems related to this as well as enhance your nose’s appearance.
To determine whether or not a rhinoplasty is right for you, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ryan Hoffman. Typically, a deviated septum is characterized by the appearance of an off-center or crooked nose, but the malformations can be more subtle. When a septum is deviated or damaged, it can affect the sinuses and create blockage, which leads to respiratory issues.
