How Can I Tell I Need Surgery For a Deviated Septum?
Added on 30th January 2021 in Blog
Having irregularities in our facial features is common and it’s rare that you’re able to find a patient that has a natural ‘perfect face’. This can be particularly relevant to your nose where a common irregularity is having a deviated septum. This is when the cartilage in the nose is slightly off-center.
Having a deviated septum shouldn’t be a cause for concern unless it’s a cause for issues that are impacting your everyday life. Rhinoplasty surgery can help rectify these issues and help you to breathe easier.
If you feel this could be a problem for you, here are 4 signs that you may need surgery for a deviated septum.
You have respiratory problems
One of the most common signs that you need surgery for a deviated septum is that you have regular respiratory problems in your daily life. If there is an imbalance with your deviated septum, it can restrict your airflow and make it a struggle to breathe properly. If you have this issue, it’s important that you discuss it with your doctor to determine whether this is the cause of the problem.
Potential disorders of the nasal
When you sneeze you tend to put this down to a simple tickle of the nose or a common sign that you’re coming down with a cold. As a result, your nose may run or it becomes blocked. However, does this happen regularly for you? If it does there’s a possibility that you suffer from a deviated septum.
Your nose bleeds
This will be considered one of the most tell-tale signs that you suffer from a deviated septum and may require rhinoplasty surgery. A nose bleed that occurs regularly wouldn’t be considered normal practice in everyday life and is a sign that you have an issue.
If you suffer from regular nose bleeds it’s important that you get this treated immediately and consult with a specialist doctor. Disorder of the nasal structure can be easily rectified with a rhinoplasty surgery as it looks to realign the nose and correct its shape.
You suffer from lack of sleep
There are several reasons why you may suffer from a lack of sleep. Whether it’s stress or a busy lifestyle, therefore this would be one of the signs that you’d look at last before considering you suffer from a deviated septum. This would be more telling if it was combined with the potential other signs above.
