What is a septoplasty surgery?

A septoplasty (or sub-mucus resection) is an operation designed to straighten a bend in the septum of the nose. The septum is the midline partition within the nose.

A bend in the nasal septum is diagnosed by a nasal examination and is not usually visible externally. Occasionally, however, the septum under the tip of the nose may be bent into one nostril. This will be visible from the outside.

The commonest problem resulting from a bent septum is a blocked nose. Occasionally, this may cause a twist in the external shape of the nose as well. A bent septum may predispose some people to have chronic sinus problems.

The operation is usually done under general anaesthetic but could be done under local anaesthetic. Incisions are made inside the nose and the nasal lining is separated from the underlying cartilage and bone. Deformities in the cartilage and bone are removed and the nasal lining is replaced. This is stitched in place using absorbable (dissolving) stitches. The incisions or stitches are not visible.

Sometimes at the end of the operation small dressings or packs are inserted into the nose to help control the bleeding. If so, these may be removed either on the evening of the operation or the next morning. Occasionally, specially designed sheets of plastic (splints) are inserted into the nose at the end of the operation to help with healing. These are secured with a stitch within the nose and removed ten days later at the Outpatient Clinic.
