Septoplasty and Turbinoplasty are surgical procedures to improve nasal congestion. They are performed from within the nose, and patients have no external facial bruising or swelling. The surgery takes about an hour, and is usually done on an outpatient basis. No packing is used on a routine basis anymore.
Some congestion inside your nose after surgery is normal. Postoperative instructions will come from your doctor, who may recommend saline nasal irrigations and an antibiotic lubricant.
