Septoplasty at Duchy Hospital

What is a septoplasty?

A septoplasty is an operation that treats a deviated nasal septum.

The nasal septum is made from cartilage and bone inside your nose that separates your nostrils. It is usually straight but in some people it may be caused at birth by the nose being compressed during delivery or during life by a single or multiple episodes of nasal trauma. A deviated nasal septum causes one nasal passage to be smaller and the opposite nasal passage to be wider than normal. A mild deviation of the nasal septum is very common and as it is usually caused minimal or no symptoms of nasal blockage, it requires no treatment. A moderate or severe deviated nasal septum can cause difficulty breathing through the nose, nosebleeds, and loud nasal breathing during sleep.

If your septal deviation is causing you sufficient symptoms, your surgeon may recommend a surgery to straighten and reposition your septum and remove any parts that are causing a blockage to help alleviate these symptoms.

Sometimes the procedure is performed to correct a visibly noticeable bend in your nose during cosmetic rhinoplasty and is known as septorhinoplasty.
