Nose Bone Surgery

Nasal bone surgery is performed to correct the curvature of the nasal bone. This curvature in the nasal bone is called deviation. Deviation is a disease requiring surgical intervention as it affects not only the visual aspect but also the breathing of the person. Because the inability to breathe healthy causes different discomforts. As an example;

  • Decreased sleep quality
  • Lung and heart diseases
  • Loss of smell and taste senses
  • Sinus problems
  • Middle ear inflammation problems.

The function of the nose is to deliver constant quality air to the lungs by constantly heating and humidifying the air. When the nose is blocked by deviation, the patient begins to breathe through the mouth, sending dry, cold and dirty air to the lungs. As a result, the throat, lower airways and lungs will not be successful even if they try to condition the air and cause serious irritation, reactions and diseases in the related region. In addition, due to nasal congestion, the person’s sleep order and sleep quality deteriorate due to insufficient oxygen intake. Therefore, headache and mental and physical fatigue complaints occur during the day. These problems can make the person susceptible to weight gain, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases in the future.

How does the curvature of the nose occur?

The disproportionate development of the nasal bones or the hard impacts to the nose cause bone curvature. Since the bone development of the individuals continues until the age of 20, it should be checked whether the curvatures have improved by this age, and if not, the surgery should not be avoided.

How to perform Nasal Bone Curvature Surgery?

This surgery performed with local or general anesthesia and closed method aims to correct the curvatures in the cartilage and bone. In surgery, bone or cartilage causing curvature is removed and smoothness is achieved. The operation takes approximately 1 hour. Silicone material is used today instead of the old padding used during surgery.

Preoperative and Postoperative Considerations

The patient who is going to have nasal bone surgery should not use blood thinners since one week before the operation. In addition, care should be taken to ensure that products such as cigarettes and hookahs are not used for a while.
