What is Septoplasty (Cartilage Curvature) Surgery?
In the nose, the septum may be in bone structure, but it is mostly in cartilage structure. In the normal case, the cartilage should divide the nose into two equal parts, while the cartilage may be curved in people. As a result, it causes difficulty in breathing, nasal congestion, snoring, sinusitis infections, continuous bleeding in the nose and chronic headaches. With septoplasty (cartilage curvature) surgery, these problems can be eliminated by opening a tiny incision. The main purpose during septoplasty surgery is to eliminate the person’s breathing problems.
To Whom Is Septoplasty Surgery Applied?
Septoplasty surgery is applied to people with congenital or acquired cartilage curvature. Preferably, the person is expected to be 18 years old.
Pre-Cartilage Curvature Surgery Process
Before the operation, the person should quit smoking 14 days before, if he is using it. If the person does not have a problem by having some tests done before the operation, the date and process of the operation are determined. Before the surgery, the person is told to stop taking blood thinners.
