Septoplasty Surgery

Septoplasty surgery is a surgical procedure that aims to correct the cartilage and bone division in the nose called the nasal septum.

The nasal septum is a structure that divides the nasal cavity into two halves and is located inside the nose. Although this structure is in the interior, it also affects the exterior appearance and can create an unaesthetic appearance.

Apart from the defect in the aesthetic appearance, the curvature or deformity of the septum can make it difficult to breathe by causing nasal congestion. Problems such as sleep apnea, snoring, and sinus infections can bring along these health problems.


Is Septoplasty Surgery an Aesthetic Surgery?

Septoplasty aims to create a wider airway inside the nose by correcting the curvature or deformity of the nasal septum. In this way, patients' nasal breathing improves and respiratory problems are reduced. During the surgery, no changes are expected in the external appearance of the nose due to aesthetic reasons.

However, in some cases, septoplasty can be performed together with rhinoplasty (nose surgery). In this case, while septoplasty focuses on correcting the nasal septum for medical reasons, it can be aimed to improve the external appearance of the nose aesthetically with rhinoplasty. Such combination surgeries aim to meet the medical and aesthetic needs of the patient at the same time. Rhinoplasty surgery aims to correct, reshape or aesthetically improve the external appearance of the nose. During this surgery, the shape, size and symmetry of the nose are corrected by changing the bone and cartilage structure of the nose.


In Which case Septoplasty Surgery is Performed?

Some problems and processes are the reasons for septoplasty surgery. The reasons for those who prefer these surgeries, both in terms of health and aesthetics, are as follows.

1. Breathing Problems: When the nasal septum is crooked, airflow can be blocked and cause nasal congestion. This can make breathing difficult. Septoplasty aims to make breathing easier by correcting the uncorrected curvature of the inside of the nose.

2. Sinus Infections: A crooked nasal septum can obstruct the drainage of the sinuses and trigger sinus infections. Septoplasty surgery can positively affect sinus health while improving nasal breathing.

3. Snoring and Sleep Apnea: The curvature of the nasal septum can cause snoring and even sleep apnea (repeated interruption of breathing during the night). Septoplasty surgery can help alleviate these problems by opening the airway.

4. Nose Injuries: Nasal fractures or nasal deformities caused by trauma may affect the nasal septum. In such cases, septoplasty surgery may be an option that needs to be corrected.

5. General Quality of Life: People with reduced general quality of life and respiratory distress due to nasal obstruction may aim to solve these problems with septoplasty surgery.
