Our nose is divided into two symmetric parts by a nasal bone connected to the skull on one side and the cartilage in the tip. Technically this wall that separates two sides from each other and forms our nostril called the nasal septum. Mostly, fatal development, accident, or injury cause asymmetric nasal cavities are commonly known as a deviated septum. This problem leads to some other problems basically related to breathing difficulties such as snoring, sinus infection, and headache. To correct and straighten the deviated nasal symptom a surgery called septoplasty is needed which is different from aesthetic nose surgery wildly known as rhinoplasty or nose job. Septoplasty itself does not affect the nose appearance but it can combine with rhinoplasty to change the nose shape and size.
How is septoplasty done?
Depends on your situation your doctor will tell you whether local or general anesthesia is needed. To access the septum the surgeon will make an incision and will lift the mucosa. Rarely making a small incision between the nostrils is needed. The next step is reshaping the cartilage and bone sometimes includes cutting the bone to reshape the deviation of septum and make it straight. The surgeon also will check if there is any blockage by enlarged turbinate to remove it. Other barriers like extra cartilage will remove. Finally, after stitching your nose it will pack to prevent the repositioning. The procedure lasts usually one hour.
