Septoplasty, nasal turbinate reduction, & nasal polyp removal surgery 6 weeks ago. Nasal irrigation 4x a day but i still have bad headaches day/night.
Usually not.: Unless you specifically request (and pay for) cosmetic changes to your nose, deviated septum surgery corrects the internal deformity of your septum. Severe septal injury can also involve externally-visible nasal deformity, and proper repair may involve more than septoplasty alone--this would be called septo-rhinoplasty, and is often considered reconstructive and not cosmetic in nature. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Surgery: tomorrow I'm having nasal polyps removed, he's fixing my deviated septum, & having an extra sinus cavity removed. How long for recovery?

Clear drainage from nose. Allergies & use nasal spray. Recent hysterectomy. Brain tumor surgery 2+yrs ago.should I panic?
The : The main reason one has a septoplasty is to improve the airflow in the nose. It may also be necessary to allow better access for sinus/polyp surgery. Whether surgery is worth it depends on how deviated your septum is and how much your symptoms are from this rather than your allergies. Another thing to consider is whether you may also be helped by having a turbinate reduction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I want to have surgery (septoplasty) for my deviated septum, crooked nose. What is usually involved in the process?

What's the average nose protruding length? When should someone get plastic surgery for a big nose?
Not meaningful: Sorry but, if I knew the average nose length, it would not be helpful. Much more important is the overall harmony of a patient's facial features. A larger chin, for example, makes a larger nose seem more in proportion. A small chin/jaw could make even an average nose look big. You should consider a rhinoplasty if you feel strongly that your nose is way out of proportion. Get two skilled opinions! ...Read more
Septoplasty, turbinate reduction, adenoid removal 3wk ago. Bumped yesterday, slight bleed & now nose is congested. Surgeon away. Could I have damage?
Bumped Nose: Probably no harm. Usually good idea to take an antihistamine tablet. Be sure to see doctor immediately on his return to rule out hematoma of septum. If your surgeon is away two weeks than should see an ENT doctor within 5 days to rule out possible hematoma of septum, as this must be drained. Do not see emergency room as they are not familiar with septal hematoma. Again, this is rare but important ...Read more
