Los Angeles Septoplasty for Snoring
If you suffer from chronic snoring or obstructive sleep apnea, you have probably tried everything under the sun to correct the condition. Often times nasal obstruction can exacerbate snoring and sleep apnea. Most products aimed at relieving sleep symptoms do so indirectly, including clips, sprays, pills, and even recommended diets. But there is way to permanently reverse the nasal obstruction that has led to your interrupted sleep: septal surgery.
One of the more common causes of serious snoring is a deviated septum, which is when the wall that divides your nostrils is offset to one side or the other. The smaller side, which must pass air through a tighter opening, can be a source of congestion and discomfort, leading to a host of sleeping difficulties. The only sure way to correct a deviated septum is with a quick procedure known as nasal septoplasty.
Septoplasty is a popular choice in part because of what it does not do: create lasting scars or alter your outward appearance in any way. All incisions are made within the nostrils, and the bone and cartilage are carefully moved or reshaped. Once proper symmetry has been restored, the mucosa is returned to its original position, and small self-absorbing stitches are applied.
Nasal septoplasty is a popular surgery because it is safe, effective, fast, and quick-healing. In many cases you can return to your regular life within a matter of days. You are left with free-flowing, unobstructed respiration, day and night.
