About septoplasty procedure
Septoplasty is a procedure in which a crooked (deviated) septum is repaired to allow proper breathing and remedy relating ailments such as mouth breathing. After making an incision along the side of the nose, Dr. Washington will remove the mucosa, which protects and surrounds your septum. Then, he will carefully reshape the bone and cartilage there, sometimes removing pieces to reposition them. The procedure takes anywhere from a half hour to 90 minutes.
After surgery, you will receive either soft packing or splints to hold the nasal tissue in place for recovery. These must be worn for 2-3 days following the surgery. Full recovery to see your final results can take up to three months, with post-op swelling lasting a few days, and drainage lasting a few days beyond that.
