Septoplasty Surgery in İstanbul

What is Septoplasty?

The most common symptom of septum deviation is difficulty breathing through the nose. Nasal congestion is usually on the side where the septum is bent, but it can also cause constant or variable breathing difficulty on both sides, sometimes on the right and sometimes on the left. Septum deviation can cause these health issues:

  • Unilateral or bilateral nasal congestion

  • Recurrent nosebleeds

  • Recurrent sinusitis

  • Sometimes facial pain, headache, postnasal drip

  • Loud breathing during sleep (especially in children)


In some people with mild septal deviation, symptoms only occur during a cold. In these people, the swelling caused by the respiratory tract infection in the nasal tissues makes a mild degree of congestion that is not normally noticed and the complaints disappear again after the cold has healed.

How is Septum Deviation Diagnosed?

Patients with the above-mentioned complaints should be examined for septum deviation. With the endoscopic examination of the inside of the nose, the diagnosis of septum deviation and other diseases that cause nasal obstruction can be made easily and accurately.

How is septum deviation treated?

The treatment of septum deviation is surgery and this surgery is called septoplasty. Septoplasty surgery can be performed with both general and local anesthesia. In the surgery, the septum, the curved parts are removed with incisions made through the nostrils and not visible from the outside after the surgery. Surgery usually takes 20-30 minutes. At the end of the surgery, most of the time, no tampons are placed, but if they are to be placed, silicone tampons are preferred instead of cloth tampons as before. Silicone pads allow the patient to breathe while inside the nose and are not painful to remove. There is nothing to be particularly careful about after this surgery. You can return to work after two days. However, nasal cleaning is very important. The nose should be washed 4-5 times a day with the serum given for the nose. After 2-3 days, you can take a bath. Complete healing in the nose will be completed in 2-6 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions about Septoplasty

General anesthesia or local anesthesia?

Surgery performed under anesthesia is called surgery performed under general anesthesia. Even if the patients feel little pain during the local surgery, the sound of bone breaking they hear during the procedure creates trauma and causes bad memories.

What Will happen After the Surgery?

Since I did not put on a tampon after the operation, removing the tampon, which was a fearful dream, was also eliminated. Since self-absorbing sutures are used, there is no need to take stitches, and the patient's post-operative dressings and care are much easier. In the early period of the surgery, some bloody leakage from the nose in the first 2 days and nasal congestion in the first week is expected. After this surgery, which does not require hospitalization, patients can return to work in a few days.

Does the Nasal Bone Grow Again After Septoplasty?

After the surgery is performed by the rules, the curved nasal bone and cartilage do not grow again. The success of septoplasty surgery is around 85%.
