To correct the nasal septum, surgeons employ septoplasty surgery, a type of rhinoplasty procedure. After your septoplasty, you’ll undergo a short period of septoplasty surgery recovery, which comes with instructions and tasks to ensure that healing is quick and free of complications.
Nasal stents are sometimes placed as part of septoplasty. These small tubes support the healing tissues of the septum after it has been repaired and keep the airways open for unimpaired breathing. Nasal stents will be taken out around a week into septoplasty surgery recovery.
