Frequently Asked Questions


What is Septoplasty?

It helps to reconstruct the deviated septum or displaced bone and cartilage that divides two nostrils. This procedure may be recommended during Rhinoplasty.

Advantages of Septoplasty are as follows:

  1. Improves breathing through the nose
  2. Treats long-term sinusitis
  3. Removes nasal polyps
  4. Stops bleeding in the nose
  5. Decreases snoring
  6. Helps in reduce sinus problems
  7. Clears blockage of the nasal airway

  1. Nasal septum deformity
  2. Displacement of the septum during intranasal surgery
  3. Blockage of the nasal airway
  4. Enlarged turbinates
  5. Uncontrollable bleeding of the nose


What is the preparation for Septoplasty?

  1. Before undergoing this surgery, inform the doctor about past and present medical and medications history. 
  2. The Surgeon will check outside and inside of the nose to understand what kind of changes should be made.
  3. The surgeon may recommend undergoing certain blood tests before the surgery. 
  4. The nose may be photographed from various angles to compare after surgery.
  5. Smoking will delay recovery. Hence, patients are advised to quit smoking.

  1. General anesthesia or intravenous anesthesia is given to the patient by an anesthesiologist.
  2. Septoplasty can be performed in two ways- 1. Closed Septoplasty 2. Open Septoplasty.
  3. In closed Septoplasty, incisions are made in such a way they are hidden inside the nose.
  4. In open Septoplasty, incisions are made across the narrow strip of tissue which separates the nostrils.
  5. Through these incisions, skin which covers the nose bone and cartilages or septum is raised.
  6. Next, the large cartilages or broken bones or deviated septum will be removed to adjust the shape of the septum.
  7. During reshaping the septum, it will be straightened and the projections inside the nose will be reduced to help for better breathing purposes.
  8. After achieving the desired shape of the septum, all the incisions made are closed.


What is the postprocedure care/recovery care for Septoplasty?

  1. The patient will be advised to keep the nose area clean all the time to prevent any infections.
