Repairing a deviated septum

Repairing a deviated septum

If you have deviated septum then you’re not alone. In fact, strictly speaking, most people have some degree of imbalance when it comes to the size of their breathing passages, even if they’re not aware of it. However it’s only when the bone and cartilage between the nasal cavity is significantly off center when it starts to impair breathing function.

You might have always had a deviated septum since birth or developed it due to injury or trauma. In any case, a deviated septum can cause many problems, including facial pain, headaches, nosebleeds and loud breathing, especially during sleep. Thankfully there is a way to repair a deviated septum, through a form of plastic surgery known as septoplasty.

Septoplasty explained

Septoplasty is performed under general anesthetic and although some significant changes are made to the bone structure, it’s actually a fairly straightforward procedure, with most patients being able to go home the same day.

During a septoplasty, the bone and cartilage that’s causing the blockage in the nose is reshaped or removed if necessary. Prior to this the mucus membrane is removed and will be put back in place once the major work to the bone and cartilage is done. The entire process usually takes between 1 to 1 ½ hours.

Although you’re usually able to resume normal activities within a few days, it’s recommended that you take a week off school/work so you have enough time to recover.

Can septoplasty be combined with rhinoplasty?

Although septoplasty isn’t typically used for cosmetic purposes, it can be combined with rhinoplasty if your aim is to improve breathing function and change the appearance of your nose too. The advantage to having a rhinoplasty performed at the same time as septoplasty is that the cartilage obtained from the latter can be used for the rhinoplasty.

The Dr. Sinha Difference For Rhinoplasty

The Dr. Sinha Difference For Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery performed in the US, with thousands of men and women opting for the procedure each year. Rhinoplasty provides a way to change the structure and appearance of the nose, whether for aesthetic or functional purposes. Dr Sinha has performed rhinoplasty on countless patients from his surgery in Atlanta with incredible results.

Below are some of the things that make Dr Sinha a master when it comes to rhinoplasty

  • The use of cutting-edge technology –
    Cosmetic surgery has always combined artistry with science and in order to achieve the best results, it’s necessary to make use of the latest advancements in technology. For example, Dr Sinha uses Vectra M3 3D imaging software in order to show patients what their new nose will look like post-operation. This is very important since it lets the patient clearly see what can be achieved and if they’re happy with it.
  • Double board certification –
    Training and qualifications are always important when looking for a surgeon to perform rhinoplasty. Dr Sinha is double board certified, which means he has consistently demonstrated an extremely high level of skill and knowledge when it comes to rhinoplasty. This high degree of skill and experience enables him to achieve the best results for his patients.

Double Board Certification – why it matters for successful rhinoplasty

Double Board Certification – why it matters for successful rhinoplasty

You may already be aware of the importance of board certification when it comes to cosmetic surgery.  Board certification is as close to a guarantee of quality care as possible since board certified surgeons must pass a series of written and oral tests to show a high degree of training and competency in their field.

Double board certification, as you might imagine, carries even greater requirements still and takes years of training and education to achieve, which is why so few surgeons are double board certified.

There are certain types of cosmetic surgery where double board certification is extremely important, not least of which is rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that’s used to alter the shape and structure of the nose – for cosmetic purposes and/or breathing function.

Below are some of the reasons that double board certification matters for successful rhinoplasty

  • The best results –
    In order to be considered by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS), surgeons must have a considerable amount of experience and must submit operative reports for at least 100 facial procedures. Only those surgeons who can display that highest level of competency and skill on a consistent basis will be given board certification status. This means that going to a double board certified surgeon for rhinoplasty will provide you with the best results.
  • The latest techniques –
    Cosmetic surgery is a field that’s evolving constantly, with new techniques being introduced all the time. In order to maintain their status, board certified surgeons must show that they keep up with the latest advancements in their field.
  • The highest quality of care –
    Board certification isn’t just focused on the results that are achieved but also the level of care offered, including patient safety and communication. Good communication is always key with rhinoplasty since the patient’s wishes and expectations are key.
