Is a Breathing Correction Surgery the Right Procedure for Me?
There are quite a few issues that can cause the kind of breathing difficulty that makes you a good candidate for breathing correction surgery in Dr. Doshi’s Brooklyn or Long Island offices. You’re likely a great candidate for this type of procedure if you’ve been dealing with issues like:
- Difficulty breathing
- A deviated septum
- Enlarged turbinal bones
- Narrowed airways or nostrils
It’s likely that you’ll work with your primary physician before seeing Dr. Doshi, ruling out any possible non-surgical solutions. If there are no other available solutions, however, Dr. Doshi can perform a breathing correction procedure that allows you to breathe as easily as possible.
More About the Breathing Correction Procedure
A double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Doshi calls on a vast wealth of experience to treat every unique patient. He’ll work with you to learn about your specific breathing issues, and will design a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Depending on your specific breathing problems, Dr. Doshi will likely use one of the following procedures:
The septum is a structure of cartilage and bone that separates your nostrils. It can sometimes obstruct one of the nostrils, which can be corrected through a procedure known as a septoplasty.
The turbinal is a small, bony structure covered in mucous in your nasal cavity. If it becomes enlarged, it can block your nasal passages — this problem can be corrected with a turbinectomy procedure.
The cartilage grafting procedure can fix nasal passage blockage by widening nasal cavities that are either too narrow, or are asymmetrical.
What’s the Recovery Process Like?
The recovery process for a breathing correction procedure will depend on the specifics of the procedure that Dr. Doshi uses to address your individual breathing issue. In most cases, the recovery time for a breathing correction surgery is somewhat similar to that of a rhinoplasty procedure. You’ll experience swelling and bruising, which will subside over the course of one to two weeks. For one to two months, you’ll want to avoid strenuous activity, but you can return to work and other normal activities after one to two weeks, based on how quickly your bruising and swelling fade.
You’ll have follow-up appointments with Dr. Doshi and his staff, so we can monitor your healing progress.
