Septoplasty Treatment In Delhi

Septoplasty helps to improve breathing and alleviate related issues. It is a minimally invasive and effective treatment offered by ENT specialists like Dr Dhirendra Singh Kushwah.

What is Septoplasty?

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct a deviated or crooked nasal septum. The nasal septum is the wall that separates the two nasal passages.

What is the Surgical Process of Septoplasty

  • Anesthesia: The surgical process for septoplasty typically begins with administering either local or general anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort and pain control during the procedure.
  • Access Incision: Surgeons make an incision inside the nose, specifically within the nostril, to access the deviated septum.
  • Mucosal Flap Elevation: After the initial incision, a mucosal flap, which is the lining of the septum, is carefully lifted to expose the underlying cartilage and bone.
  • Cartilage and Bone Adjustment: The deviated or crooked portions of the septum, whether they involve cartilage or bone, are then meticulously reshaped or removed.
  • Repositioning and Alignment: Once the necessary adjustments are made, the septum is repositioned in the centre of the nose to ensure proper alignment.
  • Closure of Incision: The mucosal flap, which was initially elevated, is repositioned and sutured back in place.
  • Absorbable Packing (Optional): In some cases, surgeons may place absorbable packing inside the nasal passages to minimize postoperative bleeding and support the septum during the initial healing phase.
  • No External Scarring: Septoplasty does not involve any external incisions or visible scarring, as all incisions are made internally within the nostrils.

What are the Types of Septoplasty

  1. Traditional Septoplasty: Corrects a deviated septum by removing or reshaping the displaced cartilage or bone. Typically used for moderate to severe deviations.
  2. Submucous Septal Resection: Addresses a deviated septum by preserving the mucous membrane while making corrections beneath it. Suitable for less severe deviations.

What are the Techniques Employed in Septoplasty?

  1. Endoscopic Septoplasty: Utilizes endoscopes for precise visualization and correction of the septum. Minimally invasive approach with reduced discomfort.
  2. Microscopic Septoplasty: Employs surgical microscopes for detailed visualization during surgery. Ideal for intricate corrections.

Which Problems Are Treated with Septoplasty?

  1. Breathing Difficulties: Septoplasty is needed when a deviated septum obstructs normal airflow, causing breathing difficulties.
  2. Chronic Sinusitis: Chronic sinusitis linked to a deviated septum may require septoplasty to improve sinus drainage.
  3. Nasal Congestion: Individuals suffering from chronic nasal congestion due to a deviated septum may benefit from septoplasty.
  4. Snoring and Sleep Apnea: Septoplasty can help alleviate snoring and sleep apnea symptoms caused by a deviated septum.
  5. Recurrent Nosebleeds: When a deviated septum contributes to recurrent nosebleeds, septoplasty may be recommended.
  6. Facial Pain: Septoplasty can address facial pain or headaches associated with a deviated septum.
  7. Cosmetic Concerns: In cases where cosmetic concerns are present due to a visibly crooked nose, septoplasty may be considered for functional and aesthetic improvement.
