About Septoplasty

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.


What is Septoplasty?

Septoplasty is surgery that is carried out to correct a deviated nasal septum. A deviated septum arises when the cartilage, which separates your nostrils, is out of position. This may lead to pain, breathing issues, and nosebleeds.


What is a septum?

The septum is the wall of cartilage and bone, which separates your nose into two separate nostrils. A deviated septum happens when your septum is moved to one side of the nose. Few people are born with a deviated septum; however, it can as well be brought about by an injury to your nose. Many people with a deviated septum have one nasal passage, which is smaller unlike the other. This may lead to facial pain, trouble breathing and regular nosebleeds. A surgical procedure is the only solution to repair a deviated septum.


Getting ready for a septoplasty
  • Your physician might ask you to avoid certain medications fourteen days before the operation. These medications can include ibuprofen, aspirin, and other blood thinners. They do this to lessen your risk of excessive bleeding during and after the surgery. Remember to tell your doctor if you’re allergic to you are allergic to particular medications or if you have a background of bleeding issues.
  • Your physician may take images of your nose before the surgery. Comparing pictures from before and after the surgery may help you see how your nose has changed.
  • Sometimes, people have a septoplasty under local anesthesia that numbs the area to stop the pain. But many people have the operation under general anesthesia, meaning they are asleep during the surgery. Do not drink or eat anything after midnight the night prior to the operation if you are to be under general anesthesia. This helps prevent you from vomiting and choking should you be nauseated from the anesthesia during the procedure.

Septoplasty procedure
  • A septoplasty requires between 30 to 90 minutes to finish, based on the complexity of the problem.
  • You will be under either local or general anesthesia, considering what you and your physician decide is the most suitable for you.
  • You may require stitches to hold the membrane and septum the septum in place. But packing the nose with cotton at times is enough to keep them in position.

Recovery : -Septoplasty is often done as an outpatient procedure except if major complications emerge. This implies that you will be able to go home on the same day as the surgery, as soon as the anesthesia has worn off. Your nose will be painful, swollen, and full of cotton to control bleeding. The cotton can be taken out a day or two after the procedure. Your doctor will even prescribe pain medication as required. -Your doctor will probably ask you to refrain from ibuprofen, aspirin, and other medications, which thicken the blood. This is done to decrease the risk of hemorrhage issues after the surgery. -You must also minimize your physical activity for some weeks after the procedure to reduce inflammation and boost healing. These activities may increase your blood pressure and result in heavy bleeding.

Risks : Most people require a second surgery if they are displeased with the outcome. Other risks related to a septoplasty are uncommon, but they may include: bleeding, scarring, perforation of your septum that takes place when a, hole forms in your septum, an altered nose shape, a discoloration of the nose, a reduced sense of smell.

After care : -Elevating your head at night to keep the swelling down -Not blowing your nose for at least three days after the procedure -Wearing shirts, which button up in the front so you will not have to pull garments over your head.
