Re: septoplasty questions...

I had a septoplasty and a turbinate reduction 4 weeks ago. Very useful in taking care of my sinus problems. I don't have any more sinus pain now, so very relieved on that. I didn't have any breathing problems to begin with, so I can't answer that. My insurance company did cover it, but I had been in and out of the Dr's twice a month for 6 months for sinus problems so that probably helped. To my knowledge, a septoplasty won't change the shape of your nose. It didn't change mine, but I suppose it could potentially change yours, depending on what they have to do to fix it. That would be a question for your Dr. Septoplasty's are done through the inside of the nose, so there won't be any visible scars. They'll all be on the inside of your nose.

Re: septoplasty questions...

I had it done about 5 weeks ago. I went through a couple of sinus infections and having my face go numb (very rare side effects)..

As for making your nose straighter, it did for me. My nose actually looks like I got a rhinoplasty (nose job) done, because it was so crooked before.

My one tip: Make sure to stock up on a lot of good dvds for after

Re: septoplasty questions...

I had septoplasty and turbinate reduction on 2/10/06. It has helped greatly. I was stuffy on the right side for the last 31 years with numerous sinus infections every year and sleep apnea. Since surgery, I can breathe great from both sides and my hubby say I haven't had any sleep apnea and I don't snore.
