Septoplasty, a surgical procedure done to fix a deviated nasal septum, by straightening and repositioning the septum in the center of the nose. This procedure is mostly recommended during nasal obstruction, trauma, enlarged turbinates or cosmetic cases. The method can take roughly around 30-90 minutes, depending on the complexity of the case.
Turkey a well-known tourist destination and is now recognized for its advanced medical care facilities including ENT surgeries. Healthcare infrastructure including superior medical procedures is available at realistic prices. Turkey's government has implemented strict safety regulations, with the approachability of medical facilities and no waiting time. The availability of well-skilled and English-speaking doctors, trained from some of the renowned hospitals around the world Turkey, is an attraction for medical tourists.
In Turkey, the cost of surgery is around 2500 USD to 3000 USD. In the United States, it ranges from 2,100 USD to 5,432 USD. In India deviated septum surgery cost ranges between 1,000 USD and 4,000 USD.
The cost of Septoplasty in Turkey including advanced medical care facilities, well-trained and experienced ENT surgeons are analogous with some of the most wanted medical tourism destinations like Singapore, Thailand, UAE, Hungary, and India. Septoplasty cost including the procedure, examination, medicines, and sight-seeing is less than one-sixth when equated with the total treatment cost offered in the US or UK.
The nasal septum is the wall present in the nose which separates the nasal cavity into the right and left cavities. The nasal septum is made of cartilage in the anterior region and bone in the posterior region. Though a slight deviation in the septum is normal finding, a greater extent of deviation in the septum results in soecific deviated septum symptoms by blocking a side of the nose causing breathing difficulties due to reduced airflow. Septoplasty is the surgical procedure which helps in straightening the deviated nasal septum. While performing septoplasty surgery, the surgeon may trim (cut and remove parts of septum), reposition (placing in the middle of the nose) and replace cartilage, bone or both. Deviated septum symptoms such as breathing difficulty, physical structure and features of the nose are taken into consideration before planning septoplasty.
A septoplasty is carried under local or general anesthesia. The type of anesthesia used and the duration of the surgery depend on the complexity of the condition. The surgical procedure usually takes 30 to 90 minutes to complete.
The typical procedure is carried out in 4 steps;
Step 1: The surgeon will make an incision on one side of the nose to access the septum. The mucous membrane (the protective covering of the septum) is lifted from the septum on one side.
Step 2: An incision is made on the septum in front of the nasal deviation and the nasal mucosal lining is lifted away from the septum on the other side.
Step 3: Then, the deviated septum will be moved into the midline position. Barriers such as extra pieces of bone or cartilage, will be removed.
Step 4: The last step is the repositioning of the mucous membrane. This is carried out by various methods. One method is suturing the membrane and septum to hold them in place. However, packing the nose with cotton is sometimes enough to keep them in position.
Deviated septum surgery cost depends on the hospital and the country where you are planning to get operated.
The surgery may be performed under local or general based on the patient’s condition and the surgeon’s preference.
Septoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis; therefore, the patient may be discharged on the same day after the anesthetic affect is worn off.
To promote healing and minimize swelling, physical activity should be limited for several weeks post surgery. Physical activities can increase blood pressure and lead to heavy nasal bleeding.
Tips for a quicker recovery include:
Cartilage and other nasal tissues may take up to a year to fully settle into their new shape. Breathing will improve shortly after the procedure. The wound can be healed quickly.
