Getting a nose job for a deviated septum in Charlotte NC
It’s very common to want a nose job for a deviated septum. The septum is the little barrier in your nose between your nostrils, made of bone and cartilage and coated with mucous membrane. A childhood injury or an accident during birth can knock it slightly off center. In terms of looks, there’s no accounting for tastes, and some people don’t mind a big nose, or feel that flared nostrils or a slight hump on the bridge lend interest to the face. But very few people find a lack of symmetry in any feature to be attractive. In addition, a deviated septum can cause headaches, nosebleed and snoring, and can be more prone to infection. The good news here is that if a deviated septum is causing real medical problems, it might be possible to get insurance to pay at least some of the cost.
A nose job for a deviated septum specifically is called septoplasty. It can be performed by itself or as part of a larger nose job. Whether the procedure is a closed rhinoplasty or an open one is up to the judgment of the surgeon. If it’s an open rhinoplasty, it will take longer to heal. Don’t try to figure out what your new nose will look like until the swelling is all gone.
