Deviated Nose Surgery In Thailand

Deviated Nose (Septoplasty) is a surgical procedure to treat a nasal septum abnormality. The procedure is typically performed to improve nasal airflow, but it can also be used to examine the nose for polyps, inflammation, tumors, or bleeding. Surgery is the sole option for straightening a distorted nasal septum, as there are no other treatments available.
A tiny incision is made within the nose. The septum’s mucosal lining separates from its cartilage and bones. The septum’s deviated parts are either removed or corrected.
The nasal mucous membrane is replaced.
Duration of the operation:
Septoplasty surgery, which straightens the septum or removes obstructive anatomy, typically lasts around an hour.
Post-operative Care:
Splints or packs are inserted into the nose for a few days to allow the septum to recover into its new position.
These splints/packs feature a straw to facilitate nasal breathing and swallowing. The outer nasal bones are not damaged or interfered with during cosmetic nose surgery, resulting in no outward bruises or swelling of the eyes. To avoid infection, strictly adhere to antibiotic prescriptions. Saline irrigation in the nasal cavity promotes faster recovery.

The healing period for septoplasty typically lasts one to three weeks. The patient should blow his nose gently after a day or two. After a week or two, patients are instructed to blow their nostrils normally.

Possible risks and complications include a septum hole, incomplete breathing improvement, minor bleeding, wound infection, nose crusting, and, in rare cases, a change in appearance. There are dangers associated with any surgical treatments. Discuss all hazards with your cosmetic surgeon.
The treatment is conducted under local, IV, or general anesthesia.

Hospital admission: The patient might be discharged on the same day after surgery.
Preparation for surgery involves a medical history assessment (including allergies, major medical conditions, and medications), physical examination, and laboratory tests during consultation.
 Avoid smoking for 3-4 weeks before surgery as it disrupts circulation and slows healing.
 You may need to abstain from alcohol for a week prior to surgery and during recuperation.
 Avoid using medications including hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and vitamins for at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complications before surgery.
Avoid using aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal supplements as they can cause more bleeding.
