A deviated septum can be bothersome for many patients. It may obstruct breathing through the nose and contribute to sinus infections. This leads to many patients asking ‘Can a nose job fix my deviated septum?’
We are happy to say that the answer is a resounding ‘yes!’. Rhinoplasty surgery can fix the septum in a crooked or a previously broken nose. The combination surgery is also known as a septorhinoplasty, and it addresses the appearance and breathing of the nose.
Both components of the septorhinoplasty surgery (septoplasty and rhinoplasty) should be done simultaneously. Septoplasty, when paired with rhinoplasty, can play an integral role in changing the shape of the nasal cavity. When the two surgeries are done at the same time, no additional discomfort or recovery are added to the healing process.
If you are experiencing breathing difficulties due to a deviated septum, it may be time to consider either isolated septoplasty or complete septorhinoplasty surgery. Minor downtime is required following this procedure. Most patients go home on the same day and, on average, are ready to return to work in as little as 7-10 days after the surgery.
Board-certified surgeons at Specialty Aesthetic Surgery are well-versed in the septoplasty component of rhinoplasty surgery. Having performed countless rhinoplasty surgeries, you can be assured you are in experienced hands when you place your trust in our practice.
