Got a deviated septum? Septoplasty straightens the partition between your nostrils, which may finally mean snore-free nights.

Last October i underwent surgery to correct my sinus's and to reverse damage to my nose, which resulted in small lumps forming on the bridge of my nose following an accident. I was suffering with severe migraines and constant tension in my head. I cant even put into words the difference the... READ MORE

Hi RS! I am scheduled for a septum and turbinate reduction in 2 days. I have never been able to breathe through my nose very well, and as a result have been a mouth breather. You will often catch me zoning out with my mouth hanging open. Not cute. Working out is challenging because you... READ MORE

I had Septoplasty - Rhinoplasty & Turbinate Reduction around 2 months ago, and the turbinates in one nostril are still quite enlarged and i asked my surgeon about it and he said, i should give it 6 months to wait for the final results.... I would like to hear from some nasal surgeons if... READ MORE

I wanted a lower angle and a straighter and more symmetrical nose. Dr. Khorsandi assured me that he would be able to accomplish all these goals during the pre-surgery consultation. However, to make a long story short, he did not accomplish any of these goals. Also, he was very nice before the... READ MORE

You can trust Dr. Robert Kotler. You can respect him and his whole staff as well. I adore him! His administrator Mary deserves praise as well. I felt completely safe and cared for by her during my follow-ups. Every individual that helps run his office is respectable. I am grateful and pleased... READ MORE

For two years I could only breath out of one nostril, the other or neither. After deciding that the cons of using a nasal decongestant spray for such a period of time probably is going to kick me in the ass one day I bit the bullet. I'm currently sitting in bed feeling a bit miserable as over... READ MORE

Dr. Most is not only professional, but also extremely kind and understanding of what the patient wants and needs. I was beyond satisfied with his work and the beautiful job he did on my nose. I can breathe with ease now and the bump on the bridge of my nose was fixed--which did not alter my... READ MORE

After moving to DC I began to suffer recurring sinus infections- about 1 every other month or so. Symptoms between infections aligned w/allergies/rhinitis, but after 2.5 yrs, 4 specialists, 3mo high-dose antibiotic therapy, 3-4 rounds of injectable skin/blood allergy tests, 4 CT scans, steroids...

My septum was severely deviated with 100% blockage on one side and 30% on the other side making it very hard for me to breathe. My septum was zig zagged because the left side was deviated at the bottom of the nose while the right side was deviated at the top. I finally saw an ENT who referred me... READ MORE

I spent the majority of my life having never felt what it's like to clearly breathe through both nostrils at the same time. Dr. Carron recommended a turbinate reduction/septoplasty procedure to cure my breathing issues. After witnessing the satisfaction of my father and sister upon the... READ MORE

Having a nose job is a very long (and sometimes scary!) journey due to the many emotional and physical changes you will experience. Because I knew that it was going to be a process, I needed to find a doctor that I trusted completely. Not only did Dr. Antunes make my nose look way more... READ MORE

As a teenager, I suffered a nose fracture while playing soccer resulting in septum deviation. During my military service I injured my nose several times as well. I suffered from mouth breathing due to hypertrophic turbinates for 25 years. I highly admire and thank Dr. Carlos Ayala for performing... READ MORE

My motivation to get this procedure done was due to my inability to breath thoroughly through my nostrils as well as my yearlong sinus infections. I have always been a mouth-breather which caused snoring, dry-mouth, and problems while running marathons. After dealing with these problems all of... READ MORE

Great experience. I had breathing issues for many years. After many years or my internist punting off as "allergies" I decided to take matters in my own care and sought out an ENT. The ENT advised me that i had structural issues with my nose and referred me to Dr Kwak. Dr Kwak took time to... READ MORE

Cons: I had a couple of minor administrative challenges prior to my surgery. Relatively painful and unpleasant recovery for about a week. Pros: Sleep apnea cured! I can sleep through the night and wake up rested! My wife says I no longer choke or stop breathing several times per night. ... READ MORE

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Dara Liotta. Her professionalism, skill and personality are top notch. I lived 30 years with a severely deviated septum and was never able to breathe through my nose, on top of having sinus issues and pain. The last few years things had gotten worse and... READ MORE

I always had an extremely sensitive nose, my sinuses were a daily issue and would make my nose very puffy. I had always been self conscious about the hump on my bridge, but with the sinuses and my puffy nose on top of that, I was really becoming fed up about the way my nose looked. When I came...

He is amazing, he knew exactly what to do after a very thorough exam. He took cartilage from my ear to reconstruct my nose (which was completely collapsed on the left side and partially collapsed on the right side). After only one month I can breathe very well out of both nostrils and he says it... READ MORE

I had a septo/rhinoplasty with a turbinate reduction 6 weeks ago. I had a deviated septum, nasal valve collapse and enlarged turbinates which disabled me to breathe thru my nose. After years of treating it like allergies, i finally decided to go to an ENT specialist to get a second opinion on... READ MORE

I wanted to breathe better. I was also snoring a lot. Since the procedure I had fantastic results. My breathing is much better. I don't get as tired as quickly. I sleep better at night. I also feel better rested when I wake up. I don't snore anymore either!! To top it off, my nose looks better... READ MORE
