Septoplasty is a surgical procedure used to correct a deviated septum, which is the strip that lies between the nostrils. In addition to having an aesthetic impact, septoplasty may open airways and relieve obstructions that can make breathing difficult or lead to other problems, such as snoring.

Is Septoplasty Right for You?

If you suffer from a deviated septum that impairs breathing, causes sinus problems or pain, you may benefit from septoplasty. Ideally, a septum runs down the center of the nose between the nostrils, but it may deviate to one side or the other due to injury or heredity.

The Septoplasty Procedure

During a septoplasty, the plastic surgeon works through the nostrils and makes an incision along the lining to reach the affected cartilage. The surgeon removes excess tissue and cartilage and may stabilize the septum with tubes, splints or sutures.

Risks

There are risks associated with any surgery and Dr. Hall will explain possible complications and side effects during consultation. Risks in the septoplasty procedure include scarring, bleeding, swelling, bruising, pain, restricted nasal-passages and problems associated with anesthesia or allergic reactions to medications.

Recovery Time

Substantial bruising takes place during the surgery and bleeding will continue for a couple of days, requiring frequent changing of the gauze. Light duties can be resumed within a week. Patients can resume full activities and should experience no pain or swelling within a month of the surgery.

Follow-up

A follow-up visit will be needed to evaluate results and monitor healing. Your follow-up appointment will be scheduled at the time of your surgery.
