Septoplasty Surgery in Patna

A septoplasty is a surgical procedure to straighten the nasal septum, i.e., the bone and cartilage layer between the nostrils. The condition in which the septum is crooked is known as a deviated septum. A septoplasty is performed by trimming, repositioning, and replacing cartilage, bone, or both.
Correction of a crooked deviated septum helps make the airflow in the nose easier which helps to breathe and reduces the risk of sinus infections. It also helps the quality of voice and can eliminate snoring. 
If you have a crooked nasal septum, you should consult an otolaryngologist/ENT specialist. At Pristyn Care, you can seek treatment with the best ENT specialists near you for deviated septum surgery.

Septoplasty Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnostic procedures for deviated septum surgery

A deviated septum can be easily diagnosed by a physical examination. To check the shape and size of the nostrils, the doctor uses a bright light and speculum (to spread open the nostrils). 

In addition to physical examination, imaging tests like X-rays are performed to see the internal structures of the nose. The doctor also uses a long tube-shaped scope with a bright light at the tip to check the back of the nose. This procedure is called an endoscopy.

Based on the results of this physical examination, the doctor can clearly and easily diagnose a deviated septum and determine its severity. While the diagnosis can be performed by any doctor, only an ENT specialist can provide treatment for it.

Treatment for nasal septum deviation

Initial treatment for a deviated septum is aimed at managing the symptoms and making the patient’s life easier in the short term. This includes decongestants, antihistamines, and nasal steroid sprays, to keep the airways open and make breathing easier.

Medicines can only treat symptoms, they cannot correct a deviated septum. Once the symptoms are managed, surgery is necessary to eliminate the chances of recurrence of nasal infections. 

Typically, the best treatment for a deviated septum is a septoplasty. 

During a septoplasty, the nasal septum is straightened and repositioned at the center of the nose. The surgeon cuts and removes parts of the nasal septum before re-inserting them in their proper position. A septoplasty procedure can take about 30-90 minutes, based on the amount of correction needed.

After the surgery, the nose is immobilized using splints and soft tissue packs to prevent future nosebleeds and the formation of scar tissue. The splints are removed 1-2 weeks after the surgery but the tissue packing in the nose is removed within 2-3 days. Splints help the nose heal in its new position. For better aesthetic results, the procedure may be combined with a rhinoplasty.

What happens after a septoplasty procedure?

Since septoplasty is performed through the nostrils, there are no facial scars or black eyes after the surgery. There is some pain and tenderness, along with blood and/or mucous drainage in the nose leading to the feeling of nasal stuffiness. 

The swelling from the surgery usually dissipates within 2-3 days, while the drainage may last for 2-5 days. Usually, patients are prescribed over-the-counter medications, along with saline sprays or irrigation treatments for pain and nasal congestion.

However, if the nose is packed with tissues, it can cause a little trouble in breathing till the material is removed. So, the patient may have to breathe through their nose during this time which can lead to a dry mouth.

How can I improve my recovery after a septoplasty surgery?

You can follow the given tips to improve your recovery after septoplasty:

  • Rest during the first day. Do not rub or even touch the area around the surgical site. Do not blow through the nose as that may exacerbate the bleeding. 
  • Apply an ice pack to the eye and nose area to reduce pain and swelling. 
  • Elevate your head using extra pillows at night to reduce swelling and nasal congestion.
  • Do not take a shower or bath for the first 24 hours.
  • If there are any stitches, they will be removed 1-2 weeks after the procedure. 
  • Avoid crowded areas for a while to prevent a cold, infection, etc.
  • Stay away from dusty or smoky areas to prevent sneezing.
  • Do not perform any strenuous activities, including sports, bending over, etc., or heavy lifting for 1-2 weeks.
  • Avoid putting any pressure on your face in your daily life.

What diet should I take after a septoplasty to improve recovery?

  • After septoplasty, you should avoid hot and spicy foods as they may irritate your nose and sinuses and hinder your recovery by increasing swelling and fluid build-up in the nose. 
  • You should also avoid fatty and sugary foods that can cause constipation and try to keep your bowel movements regular. If you strain during bowel movements, then that can cause pressure on the face, including the nose and its surrounding structures, and strain the surgical area.
  • Eat bland, low-fat foods that are high in fiber, protein, and restorative nutrients, like plain rice, broiled chicken, toast, and yogurt till your bowel movements become regular.
  • Hydrate yourself well as that helps flush out toxins and helps the body recover faster. Drink plenty of water especially during the first 24 hours to flush out anestheisa from the body.
  • Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages as they may impede recovery.
