Treatment of nasal septum deviation with septoplasty surgery
If your nose is clogged on one side or two, or in some parts it gets tighter than normal, or if one side is tighter than the other and the nasal septum has a visible deviation that is determined from the outside due to the tilting of the nose and deviation to one side.
Nasal deviation can cause infectious nasal problems and sinus infection, as well as vulnerable nasal tissue and increase the likelihood of bleeding.
If this internal deviation causes respiratory problems, septoplasty is required.
A nasal septum is a 7×4 cm wall that divides the nose into two equal parts: left and right. The nasal septum should be smooth to prevent breathing problems.
If you have deviated septum and want septoplasty surgery in Iran, this can be done easily. Septoplasty and rhinoplasty are performed simultaneously to eliminate nasal deviation.
What is septoplasty and why is it done?
Nasal congestion is one of the most common symptoms encountered by otolaryngologists in general practice. Although there are many different causes, a deviated nasal septum is the most common cause of unilateral nasal obstruction1; This can cause difficulty breathing, frequent nosebleeds, and repeated sinus infections, as well as headaches, snoring, difficulty sleeping, and worsening sleep apnea. Many different septoplasty techniques have been used to treat deviated septum in various locations. Septoplasty can be performed endoscopically or with open rhinoplasty.
Septoplasty is one of the most commonly performed procedures by rhinologists.
Types of septoplasty surgery methods:
Septoplasty is performed in two ways, open and endoscopic. The type of surgery is related to the degree of deviation and the structure of the nose, which the nose surgeon selects one of the methods according to the conditions.
Septoplasty is an individualized procedure, and preoperative assessment of the site of deviation is critical to achieve the desired result. Septoplasty surgery through an endoscope can provide better visualization of the site of deviation and prevent mucosal tears, while a deviated septum of the tail can be performed through Hemitransfection was performed under light. The combination of using a headlight and an endoscope can show the surgeon most of the deviation points of the nasal septum, and therefore, in most cases, septoplasty can be performed through endonasal. Open septoplasty may be indicated in cases with deviated or crooked nose, and in these cases, septoplasty can be performed simultaneously with rhinoplasty.

Process of septoplasty surgery
1- Complete Anesthesia
2- Making an incision in the nose to remove the mucosal lining from the nasal septum
3- Cutting the nose at the deflection site to remove the mucosal lining
4- Removal of the part of the nose that has deviation
5- Returning the mucosal lining to the middle line of the nose
6- Inserting tampons or splits
Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed after septoplasty surgery.
Post-operative care of septoplasty surgery
1- Limiting the activities of the body not doing heavy activities
2- When sleeping, the head is above the trunk to prevent nasal bleeding
3- Not taking aspirin and ibuprofen to prevent bleeding and blood dilution
4- Not doing heavy exercises that you breathe or blood pressure rises
5- Not emptying the nose two to three days after rhinoplasty
6- Button clothes that are worn comfortably and come out
7- Consuming enough fluids
8- Use of pineapple and citrus juice (containing vitamin C which accelerates nasal healing)
9- The healing process takes about 7 to 10 days
10- If septoplasty is done alone, bruising and swelling is less if done with rhinoplasty, bruising and swelling will increase.
11. Avoid collisional sports
Complications of deviated septum surgery:
Nasal deformity (in special cases)
Bruising of the nose
Of course, it should be noted that in rhinoplasty, the middle septum is removed because if it is flattened, the nose will return to its original state (such as a tree that grows from a crooked root)
But the outer building of the nose does not change because the inner septom is removed and other bone parts of the nose are in place.
Patients who perform rhinoplasty and nasal deviation (septoplasty) together need more care.
