Can a Septoplasty remedy excessive snoring?

0

My husband has been experiencing problems breathing for months. And, although we have tried every over-the-counter remedy nothing seems to work. It has affected his sleeping and he suffers from excessive snoring. It has gotten to the point that I have asked him to sleep in the guest room. I have a feeling that he may be suffering from a more serious nasal condition than originally suspected and that he may require surgery. Can a Septoplasty remedy excessive snoring?

Hi there,

Thanks for the question. Septoplasty, also called septal reconstruction surgery or submucous resection of the septum, repairs the crooked septum that blocks the airways in your nose.

When it’s been determined that you have a deviated septum, you’ll likely need surgery if you’re experiencing any of the following conditions in a chronic manner:

– Frequent nosebleeds
– Blockages of the nostrils inhibiting breathing through the nose
– Nasal congestion on one or both sides
– Facial pain and headaches caused by frequent sinus infections
– Excessive snoring

Septoplasty is a relatively safe procedure, requiring small incisions with surgical tools, with no major organs or blood vessels in the general vicinity of the surgery. After septoplasty and recovery from your surgery, you can expect a significant increase in your quality of life, including easy breathing, relief of sleep apnea and snoring, and a discontinuation of chronic sinusitis and its painful symptoms.
