  • What is Septoplasty?

    Septoplasty is a surgical procedure usually performed to correct the defects and deformities of the nasal septum (the partition between the nostrils). A septum is a structure made of bone and cartilage in the central portion of the nose that separates one nasal cavity from another. When the septum is deviated, it can block one side of the nose and can significantly disturb airflow.

    The surgery is typically performed under the influence of general or local anesthesia. After the procedure, dissolvable stitches are used to close the incisions, and nasal packing or splints may be inserted temporarily for support and healing. Generally, septoplasty surgery is safe and effective, but like any surgical procedure, it also carries potential risks and complications. You must consult a qualified surgeon before the procedure to have a better understanding of the procedure and the risks and complications associated with it.

    When is a Septoplasty Required?

    Septoplasty is usually required in the following cases:

    • Obstructive sleep apnea: A deviated nasal septum can lead to a gasping and choking feeling while sleeping, known as obstructive sleep apnea. It can lead to insomnia, i.e., chronic lack of sleep, restlessness, and overall lack of rest, disrupting a person’s life. Septoplasty surgery significantly helps in treating this condition. 
    • Chronic headaches: In some cases, deviated nasal septum can lead to severe facial pain and migraines. Due to the constant strain on the muscles surrounding the nose, a patient can start facing problems while breathing. A doctor usually suggests septoplasty surgery to treat chronic headaches. 
    • Chronic/recurring nasal disorders: Postnasal drip and sinus infections are often correlated with a deviated nasal septum. Though they are often considered allergies, rhinitis, and sinusitis are common sequelae of septal deviation that disrupt the patient’s life.
    • Respiratory issues: The most common and serious health issue related to nasal septum deviation is breathing difficulty due to reduced airflow to the lungs.

    Diagnosis Before Septoplasty

    During diagnosis, a doctor conducts a physical examination and suggests imaging tests. During the physical examination, a healthcare provider asks about your medical history to find out whether you have any breathing issues. Following this, they use a speculum to look through your nostrils and check the degree and complexity of the septal deviation.

    Once a physical examination is done, a healthcare provider suggests an X-ray to evaluate the nasal bone structure and check the complexity of the deviation. In some cases, nasal endoscopy is performed. During an endoscopy, a surgeon inserts an endoscope (light with an attached camera) through the nostrils to visualize the internal structures and determine the best course of treatment.

    Surgery procedure for septoplasty?

    Septoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to correct a deviated septum. It is usually performed under the influence of general or local anesthesia. During the procedure, a surgeon makes an incision inside the nose to access the septum. After that, a surgeon repositioned or removed the deviated parts to straighten the nasal passage and improve airflow.

    Additional procedures, such as turbinate reduction or nasal valve repair, may be performed if needed. The incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches, and nasal packing or splints may be used to provide support and prevent bleeding. The duration of the surgery varies, but it is typically an outpatient procedure. It is important to consult with a qualified surgeon for personalized information based on your specific case.

    Preparation Before Nasal Septum Surgery

    Here are some tips to follow to prepare yourself for nasal septum surgery:

    Recovery After Septoplasty Surgery

    Recovery after septoplasty surgery requires prioritizing rest and avoiding strenuous activities. Take all the prescribed pain medication to manage any discomfort or swelling. Maintain nasal hygiene using saline sprays or rinses to keep the passages clean and moist. Attend follow-up appointments as scheduled to monitor progress and address any concerns. Be cautious not to forcefully blow your nose and follow your surgeon’s instructions regarding the removal of nasal packing or splints, if applicable. Avoid engaging in heavy lifting or exercises for a few weeks, as it can increase blood pressure. By following these guidelines, you can support a smooth recovery after septoplasty surgery.

    Like any surgical procedure, septoplasty also carries certain risks and complications. Some of the common risks associated with septoplasty surgery are as follows:

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is septoplasty safe?

    Yes, septoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure and when performed properly by an experienced ENT specialist at an advanced treatment center, it is completely safe.

    Is septoplasty covered under insurance?

    Yes, septoplasty is usually covered under insurance as it is not an aesthetic surgery and is usually considered medically necessary for the correction of respiratory issues and their related sequelae. 

    Will my nose change shape after a septoplasty?

    No, there are no external (aesthetic) facial changes after a septoplasty as the surgery is minimally invasive and the surgical instruments are inserted through the nostrils. 

    How long will I have septoplasty splints in my nose?

    External nose splints are usually kept for at least 1-2 weeks but internal nose splints can be removed within a week. However, you cannot remove the splints on your own without your surgeon’s permission as this duration can vary based on the severity of the condition and the complexity of the surgery.

    Can I get septoplasty and rhinoplasty together?

    Yes, if you need both aesthetic and septal correction, you can get a rhinoplasty and septoplasty together. This procedure is also known as a rhinoseptoplasty.
