When you have any difficulty breathing, it can affect your whole life. Many people discover that they have trouble breathing due to a deviated septum. This is a misalignment in your nasal passage where severe cases can cause challenging breathing.
Deviated Septum Symptoms
Rhinoplasty can correct many of the more common symptoms having a deviated septum can cause, such as:
- Postnasal drip
- Loud snoring
- Congestion on one side of your nose
- Nosebleeds that occur frequently
- Headaches or sinus pain
- Frequent sinus infections
Many people choose cosmetic nasal surgery, but rhinoplasty can also be used to correct your deviated septum. This is called functional rhinoplasty. When you get a functional rhinoplasty, you are correcting functionality and cosmetics at the same time.
