Septoplasty Procedure

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure whereby the surgeon will work to straighten the bone and cartilage that sits between your two nostrils to help repair the septum. During the procedure the surgeon will make an incision into the nasal area before repositioning the septum into the middle of your nose.

This procedure is done under sedation, on a day basis and typically takes a couple of hours to complete. Following the surgery you will be taken into our onsite recovery room where you will be monitored by our Nurse and allowed to rest before being free to go home on the same day.
