If you are experiencing breathing difficulties caused due to a deviated nasal septum, septoplasty can bring you relief
Septoplasty is the surgical procedure to correct the displacement of the bone and cartilage that separates the 2 nostrils (nasal cavities). This procedure allows the ENT doctor to straighten or reposition the septum, and equalize the space between both the nostrils so that air can flow in and out through each nostril evenly and without obstruction. During the surgery, the doctor may also readjust or remove portions of the septum, depending on the current position of the septum.
If you are planning to undergo a septoplasty, you can expect a 1 hour procedure with no blood loss or external bruising. The surgery is typically an outpatient one and the patient would be discharged the same day after the procedure. Septoplasty surgery in Delhi at ENT specialist would be covered under most health insurance plans. Connect with our team to learn more about septoplasty, its cost and benefits.
Postoperative care and recovery following a Septoplasty
Before your discharge from the hospital, your ENT doctor will brief you how to take care of yourself during your recovery period. Your doctor will provide guidelines for resuming regular activities following a septoplasty. You will be given medications, such as pain-killers or antibiotics to assist a smooth recovery. Recovery will usually take between 3 to 7 days, and most individuals feel comfortable returning to work during this timeframe. The benefits of the surgery (such as increased ability to breathe freely from the nose) are likely to become apparent until 1 to 2 weeks following the surgery. You can resume light exercises and activities like jogging, cycling about 10 days after recovery while strenuous activity should not resume until 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery. If you experience nose bleeding, pain, high fever or other complications, you should call your ENT doctor immediately.
