Do You Have a Deviated Septum?
Deviated septum is a highly common condition which affects various people worldwide. According to Mayo Clinic, noticeable deviated septum affects 70 to 80 percent of people. While some people experience little to no symptoms from a deviated symptom, others do not have such a peaceful circumstances. The majority of people who have a deviated septum suffer from breathing disorders and displeasing nose appearances. The stress a deviated septum induces can create tense or embarrassed feelings within a person. Rhinoplasty for a deviated septum can reduce these stress levels and restore a sense of balance to one’s life.
A septum is comprised of bone and cartilage, and is responsible for dividing your nose in half between your two nostrils. When a septum is deviated, it simply means that the dividing line is crooked or off-center. The skewed septum can close or block airways within your nose, which is why people experience difficulty breathing. Similarly, the asymmetrical septum is also to blame for the unflattering crooked nose look.
Common signs of a deviated septum include:
- Difficulty breathing through nose (because of obstruction)
- Pain in one side of the face (the side the deviated septum leans toward)
- Noisy breathing and snoring during sleep
- A preference for sleeping on one side (due to easier breathing)
- Recurring sinus infections
