What is the Failure Rate of Septoplasty for Someone Who Has Asthma?
Doctor Answers (2)
Septoplasty and asthma are two separate issues
Shouldn't be related
Asthma shouldn't affect the success or failure of your septoplasty. However, asthma often is seen in allergic patients. If nasal allergies are not effectively treated, septoplasty may not improve your breathing. Make sure your surgeon has experience with functional nasl surgery. A double board certified facial plastic surgeon (ABFPRS and ABOto) will ensure your surgeon has experience and training in both functional and aesthetic nasal surgery.
