WHAT IS SEPTOPLASTY?
Located inside of the nose, the septum is the structure that supports airflow and separates the dual nasal passages. It's common for adults and children alike to experience breathing problems if the bone and cartilage of the septum aren't straight. Individuals who have a deviated septum can achieve improved relief and functionality by having septoplasty at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates. Our board-certified cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin, are uniquely qualified to perform this procedure safely and effectively. If you have breathing troubles or other issues caused by a deviated septum, contact our office in Jacksonville, FL to schedule your consultation.
"I was impressed as I entered the lovely spa-like waiting room and greeted by the friendly receptionist…I had my first of three Pixel8-RF Micro-Needling treatments with their NP Lauren Rager…She was so professional yet kind and always concerned about my comfort…She said I will see results after 3 weeks. I CAN’T wait! I will update when my treatments are completed. I highly recommend this practice and NP Rager for whatever treatment you seek.."- S.C. / Google / Jan 20, 2023

HOW IS SEPTOPLASTY DONE?
A septoplasty involves the reshaping of a deviated septum through an incision inside of the nose. During your procedure, Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin will access the area by lifting and separating the septum tissue. The misaligned bone and cartilage are then altered into an ideal shape. Your incision is then closed carefully with sutures, and a splint will be placed on the nose to help the septum heal in alignment. This surgery is performed here at our accredited surgical facility in Jacksonville, FL for your safety and convenience. In many cases, patients will see their final results 3 – 4 months after their procedure.
