Repair of a Deviated Septum (Septoplasty)

If you are suffering from a deviated septum, your nasal septum is obstructing the flow of air through your nose. A nasal septoplasty is necessary to correct this issue. The surgeon will make an incision in the mucosa inside one of your nostrils and lift it away from the septum to straighten it. In some cases, the surgeon may need to cut the cartilage to relax it or remove the bent part of the septum. However, enough cartilage will always be left behind to support your nose. Stitches will be used to close the incision after the procedure.

Septoplasty Surgery Procedures

The following are involved in a septoplasty procedure: Throughout a surgical procedure, the administration of medications is designed to maximize patient comfort. Depending on the physician’s recommendation, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia may be employed. In the case of a standalone septoplasty, incisions are typically confined to the nasal cavity. For more intricate procedures, or those that involve rhinoplasties, a small incision may be necessary across the columella – the tissue that divides the nostrils. The nasal mucosal lining, which blankets the septum, is deftly lifted away from the septum on both sides. This is a sensitive stage, as the lining is delicate and any tearing can lead to complications. The deviated septum (bone and/or cartilage) is then removed, leaving behind the special mucosal lining. The septum is straightened, and the mucosal lining is repositioned and sutured back together. To ensure the stability of the newly formed septum, splints or packing may be deployed. These are removed shortly after the procedure. Any internal sutures employed will dissolve naturally over time.

Septoplasty can help with breathing problems

Are you familiar with septoplasty? It’s a highly effective surgical procedure that can fix a deviated or crooked septum, leading to a substantial improvement in the airflow through your nasal passages. Fortunately, it’s typically an outpatient procedure, so you can return home on the same day. This surgery can make a remarkable difference in your breathing and enhance your overall quality of life. Following the procedure, you may experience mild to moderate discomfort, similar to a sinus infection. You may feel some pain and pressure around your eyes, forehead, cheeks, and upper teeth. However, rest assured that these side effects are normal and generally subside within a few days.
