Each breath that we take is a gift. However, it happens so frequently and automatically that many of us tend to take it for granted. Did you know that some people require surgery to be able to breath effortlessly?

A Deviated Nasal Septum is one of the most common causes of breathing problems in the United States. The septum is the wall that separates the two nasal passages. If the septum is deviated to one side, it may impair the transport of air in and out of the nose. Most of the time, the deviation doesn’t cause any symptoms and require no intervention. However, in some cases, a Deviated Nasal Septum can cause nasal obstruction, obstructive sleep apnea, facial pain or nose bleeds.

What is Septoplasty?

Septoplasty is the third most common head and neck procedure done in North America. The procedure involves removing some parts of the septum and repositioning what remains. In some cases, it can be done in conjunction with Rhinoplasty to reshape the nose naturally.

Other indications of Septoplasty include:

  • Septal perforation
  • Septal fractures
  • Epistaxis (nose bleeding without other known causes)
  • Sinus ostium obstruction
  • Trauma

If you have any of these conditions, it is best to book an appointment with Dr. Robert Morin so that he can help you decide on the best course of action.

What to Expect

You will be briefed on the entire perioperative process prior to your appointment. Every patient is different and some modifications on the procedure may be done depending on their needs.

The procedure lasts anywhere between 1 to 1.5 hours under local or general anesthesia. Nasal packing will be inserted to control bleeding and removed 2-3 days after the procedure. Medication will be prescribed to manage the pain and swelling.

Recovery is fairly quick, although patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities for 1-2 weeks.

Septoplasty may be performed in conjunction with Rhinoplasty or Sinus Surgery.
