How is the Septoplasty performed
Septoplasty is performed under light narcosis. Since we are using the keyhole surgical technique, only small cut is made inside the nose without the need for external scars. During the surgery, we will reshape the cartilage in order to have free airflow on both side.
After the surgery we will insert a small silicon sheet inside your nose for 5 days, to protect the newly created septum. Since we are using minimal invasive method nasal packing is not necessary. Recovery is no more than 3 days.
Septoplasty takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the severity of septal deviation. There are no black eyes after the surgery and the outward shape of the nose is not altered. Septoplasty is commonly combined with rhinoplasty, which is a cosmetic procedure aimed to improve shape of your nose. With the availability of the finest instrumentation and high skills of our surgeon, you can leave the hospital on the same day.
