Nasal Septal Correction

Nasal Septal correction is mainly a corrective procedure for hindered breathing although can be carried out for cosmetic reasons if the nasal septal is prominent when viewing the nose from below.

Using incisions inside the nose the buckled nasal septal (partition) can be repositioned to allow for an improvement in breathing through the nose.

Small packs are left in the nose overnight to reduce bleeding and the swelling of the nose settles over the period of 2 to 3 weeks.

Prior to the surgery

  • The patient must be free from colds and upper respiratory infection.
  • Stop Smoking well before the surgery

After surgery

  • The patient must not blow or pick the nose as it could cause bleeding and infection.

Risks and Complications

  • bleeding
  • infection
  • pain
  • collapse of bridge of the nose (not common)
