The nasal septum is a structure made of cartilage and bone that divides the nasal cavity into two symmetrically.
When the septum deviates by a blow obstructs the flow of air from one side and you can plug the output of the sinuses on that side causing sinusitis.
Externally it can cause the nose look biased. Not all deviations of the nasal septum need surgery, but if frequent nosebleeds, sinusitis, snoring, mouth breathing or significant effect on the quality of life, a simple surgery can solve these annoyances are presented.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, is ambulatory and does not require obstructive blockages, produces bruising and the patient can resume normal activities within a week effortlessly.

When doctors have tried and allergy treatments without sufficient improvement and the patient even mouth breathing, snoring, sinusitis, etc.. They may perform surgical procedures to reduce the size thereof. Previously receptions and aggressive chemical burns that were accompanied by pain, bleeding and formation of scabs many weeks were performed. Currently there are techniques that can be performed in-office, including radiofrequency under local anesthesia and is higher when the problem can be endoscopically resected with microdebridor that the content of the turbinates is aspirated and prevents regrowth permanently. If you have allergies and are tired of breathing through the mouth, we can help you improve your breathing.
