What is a Deviation?
It is the shift of the middle part of the nose, called the septum, to the right or left. This slippage can block one or both nostrils, causing breathing problems. The middle wall of the nose is surrounded by a thin membrane-like layer on both sides. There is cartilage in the anterior-upper part of the nose and bony wall in the posterior-lower part. Right or left shifts, curvatures can be found in the cartilage or bone part or both.
How is Deviation Surgery Performed?
Deviation surgery is performed by following the steps below;
- General anesthesia or local anesthesia can be preferred.
- An incision is made in the septal mucosa by entering through the nostrils and the mucoperichondrium and mucoperiosteum are made independent of the cartilage and bone structure.
- The bent or broken bone is corrected.
- The incision is closed with sutures produced from the dissolvable thread, defined as aesthetic sutures.
- Sponge-like tampons or silicone pads called “merocel” are placed to help prevent blood from accumulating and harden the mucosa.

For Whom it is Done?
Septum nasale surgery, the nasal deviation is applied to people who have the following problems;
Patients who have breathing difficulty
Deviation operation is applied to patients older than 18 years of age who have completed their bone development.
If there is a nose break due to acute trauma or deviation due to a fracture, deviation operation can be applied to the patient at an earlier age.
It is possible to divide the process of deviation surgery into three. There are three of these processes: 10 days before the operation, 1 day before the operation, and the day of the operation.
10 Days Before Surgery:
- It is necessary to stop taking blood thinners.
- If such drugs are taken before the operation, it is necessary to inform the doctor.
- Not only blood thinners but also cold medicines should not be used.
- Painkillers can be taken as needed.
- It is necessary to stop the consumption of tobacco and alcohol products.
One Day Before Surgery:
Eating and drinking should be stopped after midnight.
Even if the operation time is late in the day, it is necessary not to eat or drink anything after 06:00 in the morning.
If there are medications such as blood pressure and diabetes medication that must be used continuously, these medications can be taken with a small amount of water well before the operation. The doctor who will perform the surgery on time can be consulted.
You can take a shower on the morning of the surgery.
- It is necessary to stay away from the clothes worn on the head area. Comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or pajamas should be preferred.
- You should not wear jewelry such as rings or necklaces.
- If there are prostheses in the mouth and the operation will be performed under general anesthesia, the prostheses in the mouth must be removed.
After the septoplasty operation, patients can return to their social lives in a short period. Recovery time is usually 2 days to 3 days, the longest can be 1 week. The patient’s tampons are removed 2-3 days or one week after the surgery.
- Swelling and bruising do not occur after the Deviation surgery is performed using the closed technique. However, if the deviation surgery is applied extensively and aesthetic operations are applied together, bruising and swelling may occur.
- Edema may occur in the nose after operations where deviation surgery and rhinoplasty are applied together. There may be swelling due to this edema.
Patients should be examined 2 or 3 times after surgery. Cleaning sprays containing saltwater and softening drops or sprays should be used for drying and crusting conditions for the nose that will occur for 2 to 3 weeks until the healing of the mucosa in the nose is completed.
If there is no intervention due to aesthetic reasons or if open rhinoplasty surgery is not performed due to cartilage curvature that may affect the external appearance, the patient does not experience bruising or swelling on his face.
Patients should protect their noses from impacts for 6 weeks after the deviation surgery.
How many days does the deviation heal?
The recovery period of septum deviation surgery is shorter than rhinoplasty surgery. Generally, there is no bruising and swelling, patients can return to work life within four or five days. Usually no hospitalization is required, it is a day procedure . It can be done under local or general anesthesia. Septum deviation surgery is performed on patients with breathing problems. No change in the shape of the nose is expected with this surgery. After the operation, silicone pads are placed on the nose. During the surgery, the curved parto of septum cartilage in the middle part of the nose and the curved part of the bone to which cartilage is attached at the back are removed, corrected and put back in place. It is not possible to bend again.
How to correct the deviation?
Septum deviation can be corrected under local or general anesthesia in as little as thirty minutes with internal incisions. The structure that separates the nostrils from each other is called the septum. The septum consists of three structures. Cartilage, bone and mucous membranes. The operation begins by separating the mucosa, which is the covering of cartilage and bone, from cartilage and bone. After this cover is separated from the cartilage and bone, the curved parts of the cartilage and bone that extend towards the nasal passage and obstruct the nose are removed and put back in place after correcting. Moreover, the mucous membrane is put in place to cover the cartilage and bone again, and the pads are placed on both sides with slight pressure on the two mucous membranes and the cartilage/bone section in the middle. The reason for this is to prevent the accumulation of blood between the two mucous membranes. After the procedure, the silicone pads placed in the nose stay for three or four days and can be removed afterwards.
What Happens If Septum Deviation Is Not Treated?
Septum deviation is a common problem among public. It creates breathing problems. If left untreated, it can cause problems such as breathing difficulties, snoring, apnea, headache, and sinusitis. Every individual with septum deviation does not have breathing problems. The location and degree of septum deviation is very important here. In a large group of patients, there is no breathing problem and they have serious septum deviations. These patients often have nasal congestion problems, but they may not be aware of it because it is chronic and long-lasting. These patients usually at some point in their lives; especially at a time when they gain weight, or when they are more frequently involved in sports activities, or as they get older, they begin to notice their nasal congestion and come and undergo surgery. They regain their health with this surgery, which does not require hospitalization in a short time.
Does the Nasal Bone Grow Again After Septoplasty?
Bone does not grow back after septoplasty surgery. Because during the surgery, the curved cartilage and bone parts are corrected and put back into place. There is no regrowth of bone or cartilage. After this surgery, patients can breathe well for a while, but nasal congestion may develop again due to swelling in the nasal concha based on the reasons such as allergies, smoking, and cold weather. However, this can be treated with medications or minor procedures such as turbinate radiofrequency. Patients usually evaluate this situation as a recurrence of deviation, but what actually happens is nasal concha problems. Nasal conchas are not removed in surgeries; It is either reduced (with processes such as concha rf, turbinate reduction, etc.) or it is brought closer to the side walls with out-fracture. However, after these procedures, the turbinates may play an obstructing role in the nose in the future, but they can be easily treated again.
Does the shape of the nose change with deviation surgery?
The word meaning of deviation is curvature. Septum deviation surgery is the surgery to correct the curved septum. This procedure, which usually takes about 30 minutes, does not require hospitalization. The patient returns to his/her normal life in a short time, edema and swelling are not expected. This surgery can be performed in a short time with an incision from the inside without changing the shape of the nose. However, in some cases, it may be necessary to change the shape of the nose to correct the septum. Advanced deviations, septum deviations that distort the shape of the nose, deviations with anterior-upper localization should generally be performed together with rhinoplasty.
