Septoplastika

Nasal septum surgery (Septoplasty)

Plastic surgery

The function of the nose is simple: its main job is to inhale and exhale, cleaning the air of microparticles and moistening it at the same time. The nasal cavity is separated into two halves by the septum. Ideally, the septum is straight and positioned in the middle. However, the septum is sometimes bent or deviated to some degree, which makes breathing more difficult. This can be congenital or it can occur due to an injury. Deviated septum keeps air from passing freely, making the sufferer’s life more difficult both day and night.

Breathing is not a naturally thoughtless activity for everyone. Problems involving a deviated septum that prevents air from passing freely can be solved with septoplasty.

What is septoplasty

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure that can straighten a deviated septum to improve air passage. It is performed as an endoscopic procedure under general anesthesia and the results are visible after one week. You will be able to breathe through your nose more easily, which you will notice in everyday life, during physical exertion, and especially at night while you sleep. You may also notice an improvement in function associated with improved cleaning of the nose and nostrils.

This surgical procedure can be combined with a rhinoplasty on the outside of the nose and laser treatment of the nasal mucosa.

Who is a suitable candidate for this procedure

As an indication for this surgery may be considered difficult breathing and regular inflammations of the nose and nasal cavity. This procedure is sometimes recommended for patients suffering from regular bronchial pneumonia and asthma, for aesthetic reasons, or to solve the issue of snoring.

What can you gain from this procedure

  • Removal of congenital or post-traumatic deviation of the septum
  • Adjustment of deteriorated breathing
  • Change of the shape and size of the nose
  • Improved sense of well-being

Before the procedure

Before deciding on having septoplasty, you will need to have an initial consultation with a plastic surgeon. If you decide to visit ABClinic Art & Beauty for septoplasty from abroad, you can have the first consultation based on photographs or online. Our staff speaks fluent English, so you will feel at home here.

Our plastic surgeon will recommend a suitable technique during a personal consultation.

You will also need to consult with an ENT specialist.

The procedure

Since the procedure is performed under general anesthesia, you will need to arrive at the clinic on an empty stomach. The surgeon will go over the surgical procedure with you once again, take photographs, and draw the incision lines. You will also have a brief meeting with an anesthesiologist.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and is approximately thirty to forty-five minutes long. The surgeon removes the bent cartilage from the nasal mucosa, straightens it, and reshapes it as needed.

After the procedure

As the surgery is performed under general anesthesia, you shall be hospitalized at our clinic.

We recommend avoiding all physical activity for seven to ten days after the operation. Then you can resume light physical activity such as going for a walk.

Important information

Bolestivost je minimální, musíte však počítat s omezenou nosní průchodností v pooperačním období, způsobenou slizničním otokem a hojením.

  • I’ve always had wrinkles on my neck, and the skin on my chin started to loosen, so I decided to solve my problem. At ABClinic, doctor Krajcová offered a collagen treatment using the Nithya agent. The result is amazing, and improvement has been visible even after the first session. I have had three sessions, my neck and chin are firmer, and the neck is without wrinkles after the third and final session. Julie V.

  • I chose the upper and lower eyelids, and I’m more than happy with the result! The scars are barely visible after 2 months, and the result is beautiful. I may do nothing but recommend the overall care and attitude. At first, I was afraid and worried, but thanks to my friend who had already had a good experience with Dr. Šatánková, I chose her too. And I definitely don’t regret it. Even the rooms at the clinic are great. You’re in good hands here. Luisa K.

  • I was finding courage for the face-lift procedure for two years (I had been unhappy with a double chin). In January, at the age of 64, I underwent the procedure. The surgery was performed by MUDr. Šatánková. The result was magnificent. I want to thank the doctor and the personnel. A perfect nurse took care of us after the surgery and at night, and others were very nice, too. I’m happy to have taken this step. I heartily recommend it to all those who hesitate! Jindřiška F.

  • I would like to thank Alice at ABClinic and Dr. Satankova for all their help. I recently attended the ABClinic in Prague for a facelift and lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Satankova is extremely skilled and I have a more youthful but natural result. The clinic is very professionally run and the recovery rooms are beautiful. Traveling from abroad can be daunting but Alice helped me every step of the way, arranging taxi transfers and a hotel. I felt confident and cared for throughout my surgery. I am very happy with the results. Georgina M.
