Septoplasty

The Art & Science of Crafting A Beautiful, Natural-looking NOSE
RHinoPlasty In Northern Virginia

Septoplasty

The nasal septum is the vertical wall that separates the nose into two cavities (nasal cavities). It consists of cartilage on the anterior part and bone on the posterior, covered by a layer of tissue called the mucosa. Deviation of the nasal septum is present in 85% of people at different degrees of severity. This can occur due to nasal microtraumas that usually go unnoticed during the growth phase of the septum, including while in-utero. Face injuries and nasal fractures can also be the cause of septal deviation.

Septoplasty is the surgery that corrects this deviation. The purpose of this surgery is to centralize the nasal septum, both for aesthetic appeal as well as for clinical indications when the deviation causes major nasal obstruction, infections in the paranasal sinuses (sinusitis), headaches, and to complement the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.

Not all people with septal deviation needs surgery. Identifying the necessity of a septoplasty larger depends on the degree of the deviation and the symptoms presented.

Dr. Alidad Arabshahi has years of experience in performing septoplasties, with hundreds of successful outcomes and happy patients. Because a septoplasty is an extremely challenging, complicated, and highly-individualized procedure, it should only be performed by a highly-trained, highly-experienced, board-certified medical expert.

A septoplasty is a highly-intimate, highly-individualized endeavor.  Every patient’s face and septum is different and will require a different post-surgical outcome for their nose to be fully-functional and in harmony with their particular face.  Dr. Arabshahi is deeply dedicated to committing the one-on-one time and attention needed for each and every patient to teach them about the septoplasty procedure while learning from them about exactly what outcomes they would like.  He takes a field of photographs of your face and nose and generates computer-assisted images of enhanced nose variations in order to collaboratively discover what type of nose alternations you would like and clinically require.  Together, you will preview and discuss how your post-surgical nose would look on your face.  

Dr. Arabshahi’s goal is to ensure that you are heard and understood.  To this end, he spends a large amount of time discussing and exploring ideas and possibilities with you to ensure that the actual septoplasty post-surgical outcome matches the envisioned functional and aesthetic outcome and is in harmony with the individual patient’s face.
