What is Septoplasty?
Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to fix a deviated nasal septum, which is the bone and cartilage structure separating your nose into two nostrils. During septoplasty, your nasal septum is straightened by cutting and removing parts of the septum and reinserting it in the proper position.

Frequently Asked Questions
The doctor will perform a nasal endoscopy (a procedure to view the inside of your nose by inserting a tube with a camera and light source) to detect a deviated septum. In rare cases, a computed tomography (CT) scan can also detect a deviated septum.
Many people live with a deviated septum. Not everyone needs a septoplasty as they show no symptoms at all. However, if you have breathing difficulties, headaches, nose bleeds, sinus infections, and sleep problems, you should consider getting a septoplasty to correct your deviated septum.
If you have been living with a deviated septum or have recently developed a deviated septum due to injury, you may be facing breathing difficulties. A deviated septum results in problems with nasal breathing, which may cause increased mouth breathing and also impede your sleep. If you wish to improve your breathing and the overall quality of your sleep, it is advisable to consult a doctor and opt for a septoplasty without delay.
Both Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty may help with breathing difficulties and may often be performed together. However, they are not the same. Septoplasty is the surgical procedure to correctly align a deviated septum inside your nose. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to change the shape of the nose externally for cosmetic reasons or to correct structural deformities.
An ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist/surgeon performs a septoplasty.
Your doctor can provide guidelines for you to resume normal activities after septoplasty based on your medical condition. Most people are able to go back to work in 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure. However, it is important to avoid any strenuous activity for up to 5 weeks.
