What is the Nasal Septum?
A nasal septum is a major support structure of the nose. It separates the two nostrils and allows you to breathe comfortably.
The septum is covered by mucosa which is actually a thin layer of tissue membrane. Mucosa protects the septum and maintains moisture levels inside the nose.
While the septum is straight in most people, but it may be misaligned due to various reasons. Just so you know, injuries to the face are the most common causes of a deviated septum.
How do you Fix a Deviated Septum?
Deviated Nasal Septum Surgery in Dubai is one way to repair the misaligned septum. It straightens and repositions the cartilage, addresses blockages, and tackles breathing problems. It’s usually done under general anesthesia to keep the patient comfortable throughout the surgery.
Some people opt for non-surgical procedures to correct their nasal obstruction without undergoing the knife. Generally speaking, they try steroid nasal sprays, and piezo rhinoplasty to make their deviated septum straight. These procedures are safe and involve shorter recovery periods. It is, however, important to note that surgery is more effective than non-surgical management. Keep reading to learn more about how nasal surgery can give you a straighter nose.
How is Deviated Nasal Septum Surgery (Septoplasty) done?
You typically have Septoplasty in Dubai in the doctor’s office. The surgeon cleanses the nose and administers anesthesia to numb. He, then, realigns the septum or reshapes the mucosa to make the nose look straighter and improve breathing. It is a minor surgery but requires a lot of care. Please consult the best plastic surgeon to achieve the best results possible.
It’s best to talk to a doctor to select the most appropriate treatment for your concerns. Studies showed that after deviated nasal septum surgery in Dubai, up to 90% of patients see improvement in their misaligned nasal bridge. It is, however, important to note that there are some mild adverse effects related to the surgery. You will feel drowsy for 4-5 hours, plus, it can also cause nausea.
Compulsory advisory: Any physical change should be reported to the surgeon immediately so that a treatment plan can be offered to minimize the symptoms.
The cost of the deviated nasal septum in Dubai varies between AED 14,000 to AED 22,000. It depends on changes that the practitioner has to make, the location of the clinic, and the expertise of the provider.
What to Expect?
If you want to have a smooth, fast recovery, it’s very important to take a break from stress, work, and routine activities. Make sure you are flatteringly prepared and make appropriate arrangements.
Your splint will be placed on your nose for few days. This protects, supports, and stabilizes the septum after surgery. You will be shown how to take care of the packing before you leave the clinic for the first time.
While recovery of Deviated Nasal Septum Surgery in Dubai is relatively shorter than Rhinoplasty in Dubai, you will still need to follow some care instructions including:
- It’s better to not blow your nose for at least 24 to 48 hours. Likewise, do not put anything in your nose
- Avoid alcoholic drinks for one month after surgery
- Use salt water to keep the nasal airways clean, open and mucus-free
