• Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to straighten the bone and cartilage dividing the space between your two nostrils (septum).
  • When the septum is crooked, it's known as a deviated septum.
  • A deviated septum can make it harder to breathe through the nose and can increase the risk of sinus infections due to poor drainage.
  • During septoplasty, nasal septum is repositioned to the middle of the nose.
  • This may require surgeon to cut and remove parts of the nasal septum before reinserting them in the proper position.
  • Once a septoplasty is healed, it will be easier for the patient to breathe.
  • A crooked septum is common. But when it's severe, a deviated septum can block one side of your nose and reduce airflow, causing difficulty breathing through one or both sides of your nose.
  • The surgeon works through incisions inside the nose.
  • Occasionally it is necessary to make a small incision between the nostrils.
  • If the nasal bones are crooked and pushing the septum off to one side, it may be necessary to make cuts in the bones of the nose to reposition them.
  • Spreader grafts are small, reinforcing strips of cartilage that can be used to help correct a deviated septum when the problem is along the bridge of the nose.
  • After the surgery doctors will be advising to elevate the head while sleeping.
  • Patients  shouldn't pull clothing, such as shirts or sweaters, over the head.

  • Avoid strenuous activities, such as aerobics and jogging, for up to five weeks to avoid potentially causing a nosebleed.
  • By three to six months after surgery, nasal tissues will be relatively stable.
  • It's still possible that cartilage and tissue may gradually move or reshape over time.
  • Some changes can still occur for up to a year or more after surgery.
  • Most people will find septoplasty is to improve their symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, that were caused by a deviated septum.
  • The expected level of improvement varies by person. Some people find that their symptoms continue even after surgery and opt to undergo a second septoplasty to further refine the nose and septum.
