What is a nasal septum?
The nasal septum is the dividing wall inside the nose that separates the nasal cavity into its two sides.
The septum is made up of cartilage at the front of the nose and a thin sheet of bone towards the back of the nose, it is then covered with a layer of skin lining on both sides.
How does a deviated septum happen and how do I know?
The septum can become deviated as a result of the normal process of nasal growth or, more commonly, nasal trauma.
A deviated septum can be diagnosed by having a complete nasal exam, it is important to note that the easier to see anterior septum may be straight, but examining the posterior septum may be more difficult.
This is one of the reasons why the surgeon systematically evaluates the entire nasal cavity using a small endoscope.
How can a deviated septum cause congestion?
Very few people have a perfectly straight septum, but larger septum deviations can lead to reduced nasal airflow and a feeling of stuffiness.
Even relatively small deviations of the septum from the midline can cause nasal blockage, this is especially the case when the septum meets the upper jaw through the floor of the nose since approximately 50% of nasal airflow occurs along the floor of the nose.
How is septoplasty surgery performed in Turkey?
Septoplasty in Turkey usually involves making a small, hidden incision inside the nose on one side, this allows the surgeon to gently elevate the skin lining of the deviated cartilage and septum bone.
The misaligned cartilage and bone are then removed, allowing the practitioner to sew up the skin lining using a quilting-type suture. An L-shaped cartilage rod is left in place to maintain normal nasal and tip support.
All septoplasty sutures used are dissolvable and come out on their own. With the cartilage deviated and the bone removed, the lining of the skin is able to lay much straighter, allowing for smoother airflow when breathing.
Occasionally, in more complicated deviations, a small external incision is also used to allow for complete reconstruction of the septum, this is often the case if part of the L-strut is deflected.
How long does septoplasty surgery take?
Septoplasty surgery usually takes 15 to 30 minutes, of course, more complex cases may take longer.
What type of anesthesia is used for this surgery?
Septoplasty surgery is performed in the operating room. Intravenous sedation or general anesthesia can be used, once this anesthesia is administered, the surgeon injects a local anesthetic drug which will last for a few hours.
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis the same day; you are able to go home once you have recovered from the anesthesia.
Is nasal packing used during septoplasty?
Usually, the surgeon uses a thin plastic splint inside the nose to prevent scar bands from forming, this splint is removed one week after surgery.
Is septoplasty covered by insurance?
Septoplasty is a surgery that is medically covered by insurance, check on your side if your insurance plan covers the surgery.
How long does recovery from septoplasty take?
Recovery from septoplasty in Turkey usually lasts three to four days and can often occur over a long weekend, fuller recovery in conjunction with rhinoplasty usually takes about 7 days.
When planning septoplasty, your surgeon considers your symptoms such as difficulty breathing and the physical structure and characteristics of your nose, talk to your surgeon about what this surgery can do for you.
