The physician trims or straightens the curved cartilage and then replaces the mucosa over the cartilage and bone tissue.
After surgery, you’ll have a nasal splint or pack placed in your nostrils to stop bleeding and keep the septum straight while it heals. You’ll get directions on how exactly to care for your nose while it’s getting treated. For instance, you’ll be informed perhaps not to blow your nose and to sneeze with your mouth open to keep away from pressure changes. The packaging generally comes off within one or two days and the splint or cast, if you’ve got one, would come down in about a week’s time. Perhaps not too numerous individuals understand exactly how hard it may be to have your nostrils blocked and breathe through your mouth for ten days or so! Please think of that too, prior to making your choice.
