The septum is a critical structure within the nose made of tissue and bone to separate the two nasal passages and support airflow. Many men, women, and children experience breathing issues when the bone and cartilage isn’t straight. For patients who suffer from a deviated septum, causing sleep apnea and snoring, Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin of Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates can help with septoplasty. Septoplasty is a surgical procedure that corrects a deviated septum to improve symptoms and produce a natural-looking nose.

Am I a good candidate?

There are a few symptoms that qualify our Oklahoma City, OK patients for septoplasty with the underlying common factor being a bent or deviated septum. This condition may result in difficulty breathing, loud and excessive snoring, and lost sleep and life quality as a result of these issues. Candidates for this procedure should be in good overall health and be nonsmokers at the time of surgery. In your consultation at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates, we will go over additional qualifying factors along with any questions you may have about the procedure.

Surgical Technique

During septoplasty surgery, the deviated septum structure is reshaped through an incision made inside the nose. The surgeon will lift and separate the septum tissue to fully access the misaligned bone and cartilage. The surgeon will close the incision with sutures and place a splint inside the nose to align the septum as it heals. Some surgeons may use nose packing to help control bleeding.

During/After Septoplasty Surgery

As an outpatient procedure, septoplasty is performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. The surgery typically takes between 1 and 2 hours. Recovery takes between 7 and 10 days. Patients should expect bruising and swelling under the eyes and around the nose immediately after the procedure. The final results will not set in for 3 months or longer after surgery.

Expected Cost for Septoplasty

Because septoplasty is a customized procedure, the price depends on the physical needs of the patient. Patients can expect to pay $3,960 - $5,500.

Septoplasty FAQs

Breathing Problems?

Even though septoplasty is used to correct breathing problems, some patients undergo septoplasty to correct medical issues from a deviated septum. However, a loss of cartilage or bone and cartilage grafting can change the appearance of the nose. Highly skilled surgeons with experience in septoplasty knows the technique needed to make natural and subtle changes.

Common Causes?

The most common cause of a deviated septum is birth trauma because most individuals are born with a deviated septum. As people age, the symptoms gradually worsen. Even though a majority of adults have a deviated septum, not everyone has severe symptoms that require surgery. Another common cause is trauma later in life.

ENT for Surgery?

Even though most ENT specialists are able to perform septoplasty, they do not have the skills to preserve the look and shape of the nose like plastic surgeons do. Patients should find a cosmetic surgeon that can perform both a septoplasty and rhinoplasty at the same time.
