DEVIATED SEPTUM AND NOSE JAB RHINOPLASTY
Deviated Septum and Nose Jab Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty may remove a bump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, or address injuries, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing, such as a deviated nasal septum or a sinus condition.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SEPTOPLASTY?
The septum is the structure that divides the two nostrils from inside. It has a cartilaginous part as well as the bony part. Normally it is midline and a person has no problem in breathing but sometimes due to injury, development error the septum is deviated to one side or grossly both sides so there’s is blockage of the airway. Together with this patient may have enlarged turbinates which also need to be taken care of.
Together with this patient may have polyps or enlarged upper turbinate in the form of concha bulls which need to be taken care of
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Before the operation, the nurse and doctor will check the details of the operation and answer any questions.
They may ask the individual undergoing surgery to perform some routine examinations, such as blood tests, X-rays or electrocardiography and CT scan of the PNS.
Doctors and nurses will also ask questions about general health, current medication or possible allergies.
After entering the hospital, the anesthesiologist will meet with the person performing the surgery to explain all the elements of anesthesia.
This usually involves general anesthesia. The anesthesiologist puts a person to sleep during the surgery. Sometimes surgeons choose to use local anesthesia and intravenous sedation, but they will first discuss it with the patient.
As with other surgeries that use general anesthesia, people should not eat or even have liquids for a few hours before the surgery.
If necessary, the doctor or nurse will provide further instructions on when and how to take the medicine.
To reduce the risk of bleeding, doctors may ask patients to stop using any oral blood-thinning medications one week before surgery. Anyone taking blood thinners or other medications should discuss these issues with the surgeon.
During Sub mucosal septoplasty, the surgeon will attempt to correct the curved cartilage and bone. First, they lifted a mucosal lining that covers the cartilage and bones.
The surgeon then reshapes the shape of the cartilage and bones, sometimes removing a portion. After that, they put the lining back in place.
If the enlarged turbinate causes blockage, the surgeon may try to reduce the turbinate by radiofrequency reduction. In some other cases, the surgeon removes some of the turbinate.
RESULTS AND RECOVERY
Up to 85% of people have improved nasal congestion after surgery.
The Nose is packed and the pack is removed after 48 hours. There will be slight congestion after the surgery and this will improve with time.
WHAT IS THE TURBINATE?
The turbinates are long, curly, narrow-neck structures that extend into the respiratory passages of the nostrils. In each nostril, they form four air passages in the nasal airway and appear on the sidewalls of the nostrils.
Most of the mucosal tissue of the nose covers the turbinate. When a person inhales air through the nose, the largest turbinate is responsible for filtering, heating and humidifying the air.
The mucosal lining of the turbinate can also capture and filter particles in the air. This means that the turbinate is an important part of the immune system that fights disease.
