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

What are the advantages of Septoplasty?

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

  5. Uncontrollable bleeding of the nose

  1. Before undergoing this surgery, inform the doctor about past and present medical and medication history.

  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.

  8. After achieving the desired shape of the septum, all the incisions made are closed.

What is the postprocedure care/recovery care for Septoplasty?
