Septoplasty, otherwise known as deviated septum surgery, is the surgical straightening of the nasal septum. Dr. Arthur Wu is an accredited Los Angeles deviated septum surgeon and typically performs all of his septoplasties endoscopically via a minimally invasive approach that is entirely within the nose. There are no outer incisions on the face or nose, and there is no postoperative bruising or swelling of the face.
The deviated portions of the septal cartilage and bone are gently straightened, relieving nasal obstruction and enlarging both sides of the nasal cavity. Dr. Wu usually does not use any form of splints or packing in the nose, so patients may breathe naturally after surgery. Septoplasty does not affect the outer appearance of the nose. Those patients with outer nasal deformities or cosmetic concerns may require a traditional septoplasty, and Dr. Wu may involve his partner Dr. Henry Chen, a highly trained Facial Plastic Surgeon, in these complex cases.
