Recovery from septoplasty
Septoplasty patients typically require about 1-2 weeks of recovery time. Depending on the technique that was used for your specific case, a splint may be placed over the nose to help with healing. A splint is usually taken off in about one week. As with any nose surgery, you will likely experience bruising, swelling, and soreness during your recovery period. To help manage discomfort, Dr. Tansavatdi can prescribe pain medication for you. This can be discussed during your consultation together, along with any other questions or concerns you may have.
