The septum is a piece of cartilage and bone that provides the framework for your nose. Your nose is shaped and supported by your septum, and if it is bent or deformed, due to a traumatic injury or birth defect, it can make breathing difficult and your nose may appear crooked or twisted. Septoplasty surgery at our Los Angeles and Beverly Hills facility can open your nasal airway and straighten the contour of your nose.
Discovering Your Needs
Our respected rhinoplasty surgeon specializes in creating one-of-a-kind treatment plans that correct the aesthetic qualities and functionality of patients' nasal structures. Through a comprehensive consultation, thorough examination, and detailed conversation discussing your goals for treatment, Dr. Geoffrey Keyes can educate you more thoroughly about how to best achieve satisfying, realistic results.
Our goal is to come to a mutual understanding of what you want and what you physically and cosmetically need. An optimal outcome can best be achieved by working together. By working as a cohesive unit, educating you on what to expect before, during, and after treatment, as well as advising you on the benefits and risks associated with the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Keyes can ensure your experience will be a quality, insightful, and pleasant one.
When it comes to anticipating surgery the fear of the unknown can be daunting. It is for that reason that Dr. Keyes takes the mystery away from the operation. He wants you to feel confident in and comfortable with your decision to undergo septoplasty surgery. By spending time answering your questions, addressing your concerns, and showing you published illustrations or the entire surgical process, he is able to calm nervousness and alleviate the anxiety that often comes hand-in-hand with having surgery.
Our state-of-the-art surgical center functions in the same way a credited hospital would. We are staffed with experienced and well versed nurses, technicians, and even Board Certified anesthesiologists. Because the safety of our patients is our upmost priority, our team is held to the highest standard when providing patient care. Septoplasty surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. While the procedure generally requires a patient to sedated using general anesthesia, we do offer all forms of anesthesia for enhanced convenience and comfort.
To correct the function of the nose during septoplasty surgery at our Los Angeles surgical center in Beverly Hills, Dr. Keyes improves breathing tremendously by removing and discarding deviated or thickened cartilage that creates blockage. Incisions are made within the nose (closed rhinoplasty) so scars resulting from your enhancement will not be visible to others. During surgery, Dr. Keyes will identify all regions of your nose which can benefit from a septoplasty and need improvement, so revision surgery will not be needed at a later date.

- Reduction of the size of your nose
- Improved proportion of the nose to face

While septoplasty poses several physical and health related benefits, it can also directly impact the way you feel about yourself and view yourself. Through every nasal surgery procedure that Dr. Keyes performs, he keeps in mind the emotional and personal benefits that tend to upstage even the physical and cosmetic ones. Not only will you adore your new profile and the natural-looking shape of your nose, your self-esteem will be evidently augmented and you will no longer have to hide behind your prominent facial features.
