Overview

Septoplasty is a procedure that corrects a deviated septum or other deformities in the nasal septum (the boney structure separating the nostrils). It is usually done to reduce the risk of sinus infections, fix a breathing problem caused by a deviated septum, and straighten a crooked nose. The procedure includes cutting and repositioning a part of the septum to the middle of the nose. It is usually done through small incisions inside the nose. However, sometimes it may be necessary to make an incision between the nostrils. The nasal tissues will be quite stable 3 to 6 months after the surgery.

Would it be beneficial to undergo surgery to correct my deviated septum?

I've had a deviated septum since birth, as have my two brothers. I've always struggled with allergies and severe nasal congestion. I find myself blowing my nose at least 20 times a day, even when I don't have a cold. Lately, I've been noticing a lot of scabs in my nose due to dry breathing. Addition

I underwent septoplasty one and a half months ago. Is there a cream available to expedite the healing process?

I underwent septo surgery one and a half months ago, and I currently have swelling. I've heard that there might be a cream or method to help reduce the swelling faster. Can you provide any suggestions or recommendations?

The tip of my nose drooped after nose surgery, how can I facilitate recovery?

I underwent plastic surgery one and a half years ago, where a closed procedure was performed. However, when I informed the doctor about my nasal tip sagging, they mentioned that my chin appeared larger in proportion to the changes made during surgery. They suggested an open surgery approach and prop
