There are a number of issues that could cause breathing problems. One common reason is due to a deviated septum. Dr. Nease performs septoplasty surgeries to correct the issue. Nease Cosmetic Surgery offers septoplasty and other transformative surgeries to residents in Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville, and the surrounding communities in north Alabama.
What is Septoplasty?
Septoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to correct a deviated septum. A deviated septum is the medical term for the displacement or malformation of the wall between the nostrils.
A deviated septum can cause blockage in the nasal passages and interfere with proper breathing. There could also be bone structures called turbinates that may be enlarged and contributing to the blockage.
How Much Does Septoplasty Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
Generally, the cost of septoplasty surgery runs about $2,000 at Nease Cosmetic Surgery. Costs can vary from person to person, depending on the scope of the treatment performed and a variety of other contributing factors. The specifics of your particular situation will be thoroughly discussed and a cost breakdown given during your initial consultation.
At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, we try to keep procedures as affordable for our patients as possible. We do this by offering complimentary consultations as well as a variety of payment methods, including cash, major credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Are the Benefits of Septoplasty?
The benefits of septoplasty can be life-changing for some people, depending on the severity of their circumstances. Some common benefits include:
- More comfortable, easier breathing
- Decreased or eliminated snoring
- Better quality of sleep
- Reduced occurrences of headaches, nosebleeds, nasal congestion, and sinus infections
- Generally elevated quality of life
Am I a Good Candidate for Septoplasty?
The ideal candidate for septoplasty is a non-smoker and physically healthy, with nothing in their current or past medial history that would interfere with the healing process following surgery.
If you’re a healthy adult who has trouble breathing or snores excessively, to the point of disrupting your sleep, chances are you’ll be a good candidate for septoplasty surgery.
The best way to find out whether a septoplasty will help your situation or not is to schedule a complimentary consultation with the surgeon, who can examine you and determine the best course of action based on your unique set of symptoms.
What is Septoplasty Recovery Like?
Recovery time typically varies, depending on the patient, but is usually much easier than what is imagined. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities within a week to ten days. You may be advised to hold off on any exercising for a few weeks, but in the interim you’ll be enjoying better breathing than ever before.
For best results and to avoid any possible complications, you’ll want to closely read and adhere to the post-op instructions your doctor gives you following your septoplasty surgery.
