Depending on the complexity, the surgery last up to 3 hours. Upon completetion of the surgery, the surgeons’ sews up outer incisions (if any) with thin nylon suture, that is almost invisible. Inner sutures are made with special resorbably thread. After suturing the doctor will put a special band on the nose, and on top of it splint, that will protect and support your nose during rehabilitation and lower edema.
Even with splint you will be able to breath immediately after the surgery. During the first day after septal repair patient notices the breathing changes and better sleep. The splint usually is taken off after a week, and in that time your will be able to see your new nose. Bruises are gone after 2 weeks, and 3 weeks after even edema is gone. In order to speed up your recovery, you will be assigned a special rehabilitation program, which consists of different procedures, which will be delivered 2-3 times a week during 2 week period. Certain patients feel the numbness on the nose tip, after after several months the sensitivity comes back. Three weeks after surgery should be calm without any physical strenuous activity.
