Septoplasty is a surgical procedure specifically designed to correct a deviated septum. The septum is the cartilage and bone partition that divides the two nostrils in the nose. When this structure is deviated or misaligned, it can lead to breathing difficulties, recurrent sinus infections, and other complications. Septoplasty aims to straighten the septum, thereby improving airflow and alleviating associated symptoms. An ENT surgeon typically performs this surgery, and it can greatly enhance a patient's quality of life.

  •  The mucous membrane, which covers the septum, is carefully lifted away from the underlying cartilage and bone.

  • The deviated portions of the cartilage and bone are either reshaped or removed to straighten the septum.

  • The mucous membrane is then repositioned and sutured back into place.

  • Sometimes, soft silicone splints or nasal packing may be placed inside the nostrils to stabilize the septum and facilitate healing.

  • The incision inside the nostril is closed with absorbable sutures.

  • The patient is monitored in a recovery room until the effects of anesthesia wear off.
