  Septoplasty and Turbinoplasty Explained

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.



Post Operative Care

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.


  • Elevate your head with a few extra pillows or sleep in a recliner the first few days after surgery to help relieve congestion.
  • Please do not blow your nose for 5 days after surgery. As well, avoid heavy lifting, straining, or strenuous exercise.
  • If you need to sneeze, open your mouth as this reduces intranasal pressure.
  • Stop taking aspirin and other similar medications such as Motrin, Ibuprofen, Eleve, at least a week before surgery as It slows clotting and increases the chance of bleeding during and after surgery. Tylenol is okay.
