Nasal Septal Reconstruction is a surgical procedure performed to correct deviational bending of the nasal septum.

Deviational Bending of the Nasal Septum

Presenting symptoms of this condition are often blocked nose, reduced sense of smell or increasing infections in the nose or the sinuses.

This operation is performed under a general anaesthetic through the nostrils. There are no cuts, bruises or black eyes. Lining is lifted off the septum, pieces of cartilage and bone are removed, and the septum is concertinaed and repositioned in the middle line and sutured in place.

Nine out of ten people need no wadding or packing in the nose. One in ten people have some form of dissolvable packing left in the nose overnight.

This procedure usually involves one night of hospitalisation and one week of reduced physical activity.
