What is Deviated Septum?
Deviated Septum occurs when the nasal septum (thin wall) between the nasal passage is displaced on one side. Many individuals who have the nasal septum displaced/deviated have one nasal passage smaller than the other. This can be caused by a condition present at birth or through a nose injury. A deviated septum causes one side of the nose to be blocked and makes it difficult to breath, along with nosebleeds, sinus infections and congestion. Swelling of the tissues lining the nose can cause nasal obstruction from a deviated nasal septum.
How do you treat a Deviated Septum?
There are multiple ways you can treat a deviated septum. Some treatments may include medications to reduce swelling of the tissues that line the nose. Nasal dilators can help open the nasal passages and give some relief. Ultimately, in many cases having a Septoplasty procedure is the best route to eliminate all of the symptoms caused by a deviated septum.
What is the recovery like?
During the healing period, packing will be placed inside your nose to help give you support as you recover. There will be initial swelling but it will subsides within weeks. Your physician will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your surgical site and what to look out for. You will also receive medications to help with the pain and swelling. You can expect to go home the same day once the anesthesia has worn off and your surgeon clears you.
