Nasal septum correction

A crooked nose usually puts a great deal of psychological strain on those affected and sometimes leads to depressive moods that go far beyond looking in the mirror. If the nasal septum is also curved, functional limitations in nasal breathing are also present. The nasal septum, Latin septum nasi, is the median partition that separates the nostrils from each other. With a nasal septum correction, the inside of the nose is changed so that nasal breathing is restored or fundamentally improved.

Modern surgical methods offer nasal septum correction for internal straightening with optical rhinoplasty also in combination. This promotes aesthetics and nasal function in equal measure.

    What is a deviated septum?

    In the ideal case, the nasal septum lies as a central partition between the two nasal cavities. Externally, it is evident by the separation of the nostrils. While the nasal septum consists of elastic cartilage in the anterior region towards the tip of the nose, in its upper regions there is a stiffening which leads up to a rigid bone. Medically, the deviation of the nasal septum is called septal deviation.

    The function of the nasal septum is to separate the nasal cavities to ensure optimal air circulation. In addition, the ossified portion of the nasal septum gives the nasal framework its stable shape. The distinctive, characteristic shape of each nose develops along the nasal septum.

    Just as hardly any face is completely symmetrical, the nasal septum also deviates a little from clear symmetry in almost all people. Slight curvatures to one side are hardly noticed by humans, as they fulfill their function without any complaints.

    However, if the deviated septum is more severe, mild or more severe narrowing in the nasal cavities will be evident. Olfaction may be impaired, as well as nasal breathing. Also, deviations from the straight shape can reduce ventilation, allowing bacteria and viruses to attach more easily and more often. As a result, frequent infections may occur (e.g. in the case of weaknesses in the immune system). Other symptoms of deviated septum are inflammation of the throat, sinuses and middle ear, night snoring and headaches.

    What are the causes of

    a deviated septum?

    A crooked nasal septum can be inherited and congenital, develop during child development due to asymmetrical growth, or result from trauma after injury (nasal fracture). For the determination of a curvature of the nasal septum, the doctor examines the nose, for example, via a nasal endoscopy (rhinoscopy), in order to examine the specific malposition of the nasal septum. In addition, ultrasound examinations or computed tomography can be used to accurately determine existing curvatures of the nasal septum.

    Even more than other cosmetic surgeries, nose surgeries such as deviated septum must be preceded by detailed diagnostics. Other diseases, allergies or nasal turbinate enlargement must be excluded or their presence must be included in the treatment. Since a deviated septum is often associated with frequent infections, the nose surgery should be planned in such a way that an infection can be ruled out as best as possible at the time of surgery.

    What is a

    nasal septum correction?

    Nasal septum correction is a surgical procedure to remove curvatures in the nasal septum. Due to hereditary or acquired factors (for example, accidents and trauma), the normally straight middle wall in the nose may be curved. This circumstance, in conjunction with various aspects such as nasal turbinate enlargement, can lead to problems with nasal breathing and bring with it an increased susceptibility to infections. By correcting the nasal septum, the path for breathing air is smoothed and nasal breathing is thus significantly facilitated.

    In nasal surgery to correct the nasal septum, physicians distinguish between septoplasty and functional septorhinoplasty. While septoplasty primarily aims to straighten the crooked nasal septum inside the nose, septorhinoplasty complements the straightening of the outer shape of the nose. Both nose surgeries are performed under anesthesia and can permanently improve the quality of life of the affected person through aesthetic as well as functional changes to the nose.

    What is the procedure

    for nasal septum surgery?

    If you decide to have a septoplasty or functional septorhinoplasty, your attending physician will usually welcome you for a detailed examination on the first day of your arrival in Turkey. He will take a look at the documents you have brought with you (if available), but will also examine you himself in order to get an exact picture of the problem at hand, but also to take into account your wishes regarding a possible nose correction. At the end of the treatment he will develop the exact treatment plan and explain the advantages, but also the individual risks for you when deciding on the nose surgery.

    The surgery for nasal septum correction is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery is usually performed through the nasal opening to prevent visible scarring. The first step is the correction of the nasal septum, in which curved parts are removed, straightened and repositioned in an optimized position. This is followed by further nasal correction in functional septorhinoplasty, for example to straighten the existing crooked nose, remove excess cartilage or change it to a better position. A reduction in the size of the turbinates can also be accomplished in rhinoplasty.

    Depending on the extent of the changes, platelets made of medical plastic or silicone may be inserted to support the soft nasal tissue, and these are removed again after about a week. Finally, the wound is closed, sutured if necessary, and well dressed, for example with tamponades or external stabilization with tapes, plaster bandages or a plastic splint.

    Once the operation is successfully completed, you will be taken to your room where you will be closely monitored. After a few days, sometimes after just one night, you can then move to your wellness hotel. There you will enjoy your stay in the modern ambience and indulge in relaxation to regenerate all around.

    For whom is a

    nasal septum correction suitable?

    The correction of the nasal septum as a sole nose surgery, the so-called septoplasty, is an option for all people who suffer from the associated symptoms such as impaired nasal breathing, snoring or frequent infections due to a curvature of the nasal septum. Functional septorhinoplasty, on the other hand, is the option of choice when a rhinoplasty for a crooked nose is contemplated in addition to a curved septum.

    Thus, depending on the type, the nasal septum correction forms the optimized combination of functional improvement of the nasal function and aesthetic aspects, which reduces a psychological burden due to the nasal malposition. Especially in the case of mental stress caused by a malpositioned nose, the successful result is a relief. However, in order to manifest the surgical success permanently, the completed development of the nose is an important factor. The nose operation is therefore offered in Turkey as well as in Germany only for patients from 18 years. Only in serious exceptional cases and with the consent of the parents, the corresponding nose surgery can be implemented before.

    As with all rhinoplasty procedures, the patient should be in good general health and free of inflammation and infection in the nose area as well as the skin on the face. The nasal septum correction could otherwise be jeopardized by a poor healing process.

    What are the risks of a

    nasal septum correction?

    The nasal septum correction is usually performed through the nasal opening. In septoplasty this is almost exclusively the case, while in septorhinoplasty it is sometimes necessary to work from the outside in order to optimally implement the nasal surgery with the direction of the crooked nose or the reduction of the nose. Then, however, the incisions for nose correction are usually made in such a way that sutures and any scars that may form are made almost invisible by placing them at the junction between the skin of the nose and the inside of the nose.

    This approach also sustainably reduces the risk during wound healing. The small cuts usually heal quickly and without complications. Nevertheless, the complete regeneration of the nasal mucosa requires between 3 and six weeks. During this time, there may be increased secretion production and crusting. Nosebleeds may occur and are exacerbated by physical activity or high blood pressure, so a quiet recovery period and avoidance of exertion (physical labor, lifting weights, or sports) should be avoided to promote wound healing. In addition, careful nose care as prescribed by the attending physician is important to avoid risks.

    The risk for septorhinoplasty is slightly higher due to the greater amount of treatment required, as rhinoplasty is performed in addition to the straightening of the nasal septum. Depending on the extent of the measures performed (e.g. removal of cartilage and bone tissue, reduction of the nasal concha), further swelling and bruising may occur during rhinoplasty, but these also usually subside after a few days or weeks.

    In addition, with the variants of nasal septoplasty (septoplasty as well as septorhinoplasty), there is a residual risk due to undesirable injuries to the nasal mucous membranes, a temporary loss of the sense of smell, sensory irritation of the nose, tip of the nose and / or adjacent facial areas and damage to the surrounding tissue as well as infections of the wound sites. You can avoid most risks by carefully following the advised hygiene and care instructions.

    The first days after nasal septum surgery:

    healing process and behavioral recommendations.

    Every surgical intervention means a great effort for the body. In order to promote wound healing after rhinoplasty, it is important to follow the doctor’s recommendations. In addition to optimal fulfillment for hygiene and care, this means that you as a patient can enjoy rest and recuperation. Use the time in the clinic as well as during your subsequent stay in our modern wellness hotel to rest and regenerate.

    Typical consequences of the operation are swelling and possibly pain in the area of the nose, which can extend into the upper jaw or the eyes. If necessary, your doctor will prescribe painkillers or cooling ointments and creams. The nursing staff at the hospital will take care of your needs until you transfer from the hospital to the hotel, where well-trained hotel staff will take over your pampering program.

    Also, even in the days after your deviated septum surgery, make sure to keep your face as still as possible. You should also refrain from sports, physical activities, lifting weights or visits to the sauna as well as strong, direct sunlight in the days following the operation. If you notice any unusual discomfort during this time or are uncertain about wound healing, the medical staff at the clinic will be happy to assist you, including a German-speaking escort.
