Septoplasty refers to the surgery of the nasal septum. The nasal septum is the cartilaginous bone that separates the left and right sides of the bone. When this septum is not straight and crooked either towards the left or towards the right of the nose, it is termed nasal septum deviation.
Septoplasty is repositioning or straightening the nasal septum to align it in the centre. The procedure may involve surgically removing the part of the septum from one side and reinserting that part towards the other side to balance it equally. The success of surgery largely depends on the extent of septum deviation. However, some symptoms, like nasal obstruction, can permanently be cured through septoplasty.
Treatments for nasal septum deviations
Treating a deviated septum is initially focused on managing the symptoms, which may include,
Other Nasal Surgeries
Rhinoplasty - changing the form of the nose through surgery is known as rhinoplasty (RIE-no-plus-tee). It is possible to perform a rhinoplasty to alter the nose’s appearance, enhance breathing, or both. The nose’s structure is composed primarily of bone in the top third and cartilage in the lower third. During rhinoplasty, bone, cartilage, and skin may be replaced. Discuss the benefits of rhinoplasty and whether it is right for you with your surgeon.
Rhinoseptoplasty - rhino septoplasty is required when there is an associated deformity on the external portion of the nasal or nasal value or when the septal deviation is more complex. This procedure helps in achieving adequate nasal breathing.
Turbinate reduction - in this procedure, your surgeon reduces the size of your turbinates (small and body structures inside your nose) by eliminating the excess tissue. Turbinate reduction helps improve the airflow in patients with nasal obstruction.
