Your septoplasty will be performed under local or general anesthesia. Dr. Zuliani will perform this treatment onsite at Zuliani Facial Aesthetics in Bloomfield Hills or at an accredited surgery center. This procedure typically takes about 90 minutes to complete.
To correct the deviated septum, Dr. Zuliani will make a small incision on either side of your nose to access the septum. Carefully lifting the mucous membrane, he will then straighten the septum to create a symmetrical division of the nose.
Once your procedure is complete, stitches may be used to secure the membrane and septum in place. Your nose will also be packed with absorbable foam to help control any post-surgical bleeding.
