What is Septoplasty?

Septoplasty, also known as submucous septal resection or septal reconstruction is a corrective procedure that is performed to straighten the deviated nasal septum, i.e., the middle part of the nose. People with a crooked nose often experience breathing difficulties, which is why it is necessary to undergo this procedure to reshape or reconstruct the nose in an ideal way. If you also have a deviated septum, contact our ENT specialists and undergo septoplasty in the safest way possible.

Your consultation with our septoplasty surgeon in Mumbai will begin with the doctor asking about your symptoms and how long have you been having those symptoms. The doctor will examine the inside of your nose with the use of bright light. The doctor may also check the nasal tissues before and after applying a decongestant nasal spray. Based on your diagnosis, the septoplasty doctor will evaluate your deviated septum and determine the severity of your condition. The severity of your condition is an important factor in determining the treatment. Your ENT doctor will suggest the most suitable and beneficial treatment option for your case.
The nasal septum is the partition of the nose and is made up of bone and cartilage that separates both the nasal cavities from each other. Septoplasty is the surgery that corrects the defects and deformities of the nasal septum. This surgery aims to straighten the nasal septum in the midline position, as much as possible and clear the airway by removing the deviated part and restructuring the bone and cartilage. We perform septoplasty as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia, based on the needs of the condition. Our ENT doctors have an unparalleled record of performing successful ENT surgeries like FESS, septoplasty, tonsillectomy, and so on. If you are suffering from problems associated with deviated nasal septum such as breathing difficulties, snoring, nasal blockage, or congestion, a septoplasty surgery can greatly improve your life and eliminate such symptoms. You can make your appointment with our ENT doctor for nasal septum treatment in Mumbai.
