Septoplasty Claims

Septoplasty surgery is a plastic surgery performed to correct the septum of the nose. The nasal septum is a wall of cartilage and bone dividing the left nostril from the right nostril and gives shape and support to the nose.

A septoplasty is often performed to:

  • Improve breathing: the operation can straighten cartilage or removed malformed cartilage which is hindering the patient's breathing. E.g. the surgery may be part of the treatment process for sleep apnea.
  • After a nose job (Rhinoplasty): to again improve the patient's breathing, to straighten the airways, or straighten a crooked nose.

In general, following a septoplasty the nose will take two weeks to heal enough for the patient to feel comfortable going about their everyday business.

Normal Issues Following A Septoplasty

There is likely to be some light bleeding from the nose for a number of days following a septoplasty, a clear fluid or slightly blood stained fluid may also drain from the nose. You may also experience numbness of the nose, cheeks and upper lip. This numbness should dissipate with a few weeks but you may find that it is in fact months before sensation returns to the tip of your nose. An antibiotic may be prescribed to you to minimise the risk of you developing an infection following the surgery. Finally, if you hear a whistling noise when you breathe in and out following a septoplasty, you may have a hole in the septum. This is not a major issue in most cases, and will not lead to complications but you may decide you wish to have another surgery to correct it.

Problems Following A Septoplasty

There are few symptoms following a septoplasty that you should be concerned about and you should seek medical attention immediately.

  • heavy bleeding that doesn't stop within 10 to 15 minutes: some bleeding is normal following the surgery but excessive bleeding is not. You may need the surgeon to put packing into your nose to stem the bleeding. If this is not effective it may be necessary to have another operation to stop the bleeding.
  • a blocked nose that gets worse: if you have any difficulty breathing whatsoever you should contact a doctor as soon as you can, this may be a sign of an infection in the nose. These type of infections are rare but can be serious.
  • Raised temperature or fever: this may be a sign of an infection
  • Increasing pain
