Ideal candidates for a septoplasty
If you have been diagnosed with a deviated or crooked septum, you are likely an ideal candidate for septoplasty. Your septum may have been damaged in an injury, or you may have been born with this specific issue. Many candidates experience uncomfortable symptoms, such as snoring, frequent nosebleeds, breathing issues, and even loss of their sense of smell. Also, if combined with a rhinoplasty, a septoplasty could also slightly straighten the appearance of a crooked nose caused by a septum problem. An abnormal septum can cause many problems with nasal functionality, and a septoplasty offers many patients a long-term solution.
