Non-surgical Deviated Septum Correction NYC New York NY

 for straightening out a deviated septum without surgery. The septum is made up of bone and cartilage, with a layer of mucoperichondrium (the inner lining of the nose) on either side. Septoplasty involves lifting up this outer layer through incisions inside the nose and removing/reshaping deflected cartilage and bone. It is a procedure performed quite commonly by ENT surgeons as well as plastic surgeons. The procedure takes around an hour to complete and the recovery is fairly quick and straightforward.

The only situation in which filler injection may be useful is if the upper portion of the septum (along the bridge) is deviated to one side, in which case injecting filler on the concave side may cause the nose to appear less deviated. However, this is more or less a camouflaging technique and will not improve your breathing or the underlying problem of a deviated septum.
