What is septoplasty?

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed to correct a deviated nasal septum. The nasal septum is the bone and cartilage that separate the inside of the nose into two halves. When the nasal septum is deviated, it can make it difficult to breathe through the nose.

During a septoplasty, the nasal septum is moved to the center of the nose. To do this, the surgeon may need to cut and remove pieces of the nasal septum. These pieces may then be put back in the nose in the correct position.

Indications for septoplasty

The indications for septoplasty are as follows:


  • A severely deviated nasal septum
  • Obstruction of one side of the nose
  • Reduced airflow through the nose
  • Difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Frequent nosebleeds
  • Symptoms that affect quality of life and vital functions such as sleep, breathing, and speech
  • ineffectiveness of traditional medical treatments in relieving symptoms and improving breathin.

How is endoscopic septoplasty performed?

The steps of endoscopic septoplasty include the following:

  • The deviation is determined using an endoscope to diagnose the deviation of the nasal septum and determine the location of the incision.
  • The patient is anesthetized and prepared for surgery.
  • An incision is made on the side of the deviation that is 1-2 cm back from the front of the septum.
  • The mucous membrane is lifted in the area adjacent to the incision.
  • The deviated portions of bone and cartilage are removed to correct the deviation.
  • The deviation is reduced by arranging the deviated tissues correctly.
  • The pieces are sewn together with absorbable sutures.
  • The patient is monitored after surgery to ensure proper recovery and no complications.
  • The final outcome is evaluated to ensure that the deviation is corrected and airflow through the nose is improved.

These are the basic steps of endoscopic septoplasty, which is performed to correct the deviation and improve the patient’s breathing through the nose.

Advantages of endoscopic septoplasty

Endoscopic septoplasty offers several advantages over traditional septoplasty, including:

  • It uses a modern technique. An endoscope is used to visualize the nasal cavity with high precision, allowing for accurate correction of the deviation.
  • It aims to improve airflow through the nose. This is done by straightening the deviated nasal septum, which helps to relieve nasal congestion.
  • Due to the precise and minimally invasive nature of endoscopic surgery, it reduces the level of pain after surgery. Usually, a pain reliever like paracetamol is enough to manage the pain.
  • In most cases, there is no need for stitches or packing after surgery. This reduces the potential side effects and speeds up the healing process.
