Septoplasty surgery is the surgical correction of a deviated nasal septum to provide better breathing and relief from sinus infections. We provide advanced septoplasty surgery in India with the best ENT specialists to ensure an effective and successful surgery.
Septoplasty is also known as septal resection or septal reconstruction surgery. The surgery involves reshaping, straightening, and realigning the nasal septum, i.e., the cartilaginous structure dividing the space between the nostrils.
During the surgery, the surgeon cuts and removes parts of the nasal septum before reinserting them in the proper position. It is generally performed for patients with a severely deviated nasal septum, as it can reduce and deviate the airflow on either or both sides of the septum, making it harder for the patient to breathe.

Diagnosis for septoplasty surgery is performed through a mix of physical examination and imaging tests. During the physical examination, the ENT doctor will collect your medical history to find out whether you have any breathing issues. Following this, he will use a speculum to look through your nostrils and check the degree and complexity of the septal deviation.
Once a physical examination is done, the patient may need an X-ray to help the doctor evaluate the patient’s nasal bone structure and confirm the complexity of the deviation. A nasal endoscopy may also be performed. During an endoscopy, the surgeon inserts an endoscope (light with an attached camera) through the nostrils to visualize the internal structures and determine the best course of treatment.
Septoplasty is the straightening of the nasal septum by trimming, repositioning, and replacing the bone or cartilage making up the nasal septum. Nowadays, thanks to medical advancements, septoplasty is performed with minimal invasion and without any major complications.
Depending on the complexity of the surgery and whether the surgery is being combined with another surgical procedure (like FESS, tonsillitis, etc.), septoplasty can be performed under either local or general anesthesia. The surgeon makes a small incision to access the cartilage and bone inside the septum. In case of bony deviation, parts of the bone are cut out, and the space is re-filled using graft tissues.
Once the structures are re-aligned and strengthened, the incision is closed with an absorbable suture, and silicone splints are inserted in both nostrils to help support the septum. The surgeon also inserts bandages into the nose as packing to help control the bleeding.
The surgery is usually performed outpatient, so the patient can go home on the same day and spend their recovery period at home. However, they need approval from their ENT surgeon and regular postoperative consultations before traveling or performing any strenuous activities.
To avoid postoperative complications, it is best to prepare diligently for a septoplasty operation. You can prepare for the surgery by following the given tips:
There is no aesthetic damage after the surgery as the surgery is performed through the nostrils. In most cases, the patient doesn’t even get black eyes. However, there is a little pain and discomfort due to the packing, splints, and surgical incisions.
Post-surgical swelling may last for about 2-3 days and drainage for 2-5 days. Generally, over-the-counter medications such as NSAIDs (paracetamol, ibuprofen) are enough to manage the pain. If the patient has nasal congestion, they can use saline sprays, irrigation fluids, etc., to clear it. While the patient’s breathing will clear within a couple of weeks as the splint comes off, complete healing will take at least 3 months.
Septoplasty is usually required in the following cases:
Respiratory issues: The most common and serious health issue related to nasal septum deviation is breathing difficulty due to reduced airflow to the lungs.
Improved senses: Septoplasty improves senses for patients with impaired smell or taste senses by allowing better flow of oxygenated air to the body.
Healing after septoplasty is a slow process as it takes time for the tissues to settle in their new positions, but most patients notice a significant improvement in their breathing within 2-3 weeks of the surgery. Complete healing of the cartilage and nasal tissues after septoplasty can take as long as 3-6 months.
You can improve your recovery by following the given instructions:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ankita (pseudonym), in her early 20s, was used to frequent headaches, colds, and sinus issues since her childhood. When her symptoms got really bad, she abandoned her usual treatment techniques and home remedies and sought treatment on the internet, which led her to Pristyn Care.
She visited Pristyn Care for a consultation and our ENT specialist diagnosed her with allergic sinusitis along with a deviated nasal septum. Along with a deviated nasal septum, she also had enlarged adenoids which were preventing her from breathing properly. After further consideration and deliberation with her ENT doctor, her treatment plan was decided, which comprised of a FESS procedure and a septoplasty.
Her surgery was scheduled within 2-3 days of the consultation and she did not have to worry about the insurance documentation at all as the entire process was handled by our Pristyn Care care coordinators. She had some discomfort after the procedure, but within a week, she noticed a significant improvement in her breathing. During one of her postoperative follow-up checkups, she told us that this was the first time she had been breathing this easily in the past 20 years. After the surgery, she left rave reviews about her experience at Pristyn Care and our ENT specialist, Dr. Tanvi Srivastava.
