If the operation was performed under general anesthesia on the day of surgery after the septoplasty operation, it should be open and dehydrated for the first 4 hours. On the day of surgery, general anesthesia-related nausea, mild dizziness and a small amount of headaches may occur. It is normal for bleeding to be seen from the front and back of the nose. Generally fhe first three days after the septoplasty operation, leakage or dripping bleeding is observed.
After septoplasty operation, silicone splints in both nasal cavity are removed from the private ent office of Dr.Murat Enoz.
Drugs and their use after septoplasty operation:- ocean water sprays 4 times a day in each nostril 2 times

- a tablet containing paracetamol, 3 times a day, 1 tablet after the eating

How is the bath done after septoplasty operation?After septoplasty operation, it is ideal to avoid city water, shampoo or soap contact within the nose for the first 3 weeks.
For the first 3 weeks you can tilt your head backwards, separate your hair and your body separately as in the hair salon. During the bath, it is appropriate that you do not use hot water.
Inappropriate food and drinks after septoplasty operation
Food and beverages that are inconvenient after septoplasty operationSince it may increase the likelihood of bleeding, consuming all hot beverages and foods is inconvenient after septoplasty.
It is ideal not to be consumed in highly spicy, salty products. Again, it is appropriate to not be consumed fish oil, ginklo biloba, cherry and garlic, which may cause bleeding time.
What to consider when sneezing after septoplasty operation!After septoplasty operation, internal nasal silicone splints placed inside the nasal cavity may cause sneezing attacks by contacting the bristles inside the nose or in patients with foreign body mechanism.
When the sneezing sensation comes after septoplasty operation, the mouth must be fully opened and the nostrils should not be closed. If the nostrils are closed during sneezing, a severe pressure increase in the nasal cavity and severe nosebleed bleeding may occur.
Simple recommendations to improve recovery rate after septoplasty operationIncreasing the mucosal moisture in the nose after septoplasty operation increases the rate of improvement. You can note the following recommendations:
- regularly use the recommended intranasal seawater sprays and nasal moisturizing products
- consume high fruits and vegetables, plenty of water (beneficial for the health of the mucous)
- avoid diuretic infusions and beverages (tea, coffee, instant coffee ...)
- It is ideal to avoid a climatic environment, an electric heater or a terrestrial cold climate that
accelerates the loss of moisture from the nasal mucosa. If you are going to be in such a way after septoplasty operation, you can use nasal moisturizer more often in consultation with me
- do not insert napkins, fingers or paper towels that dry the mucosa into the nose
About exercise and walking after septoplasty operationAfter the septoplasty operation, you can walk regularly from the second day after the surgery. For this reason, it is appropriate to use nasal moisturizer products and drink water before walking.
After septoplasty operation, it is ideal to start lifting or heavy exercises after the 3rd week.
There is a risk of hemorrhage for the first 10 days after septoplasty operation. After 10 days the risk of nosebleeds decreases. Exercise and walking in cold conditions reduces the possibility of bleeding.
Flight after septoplasty operationAfter septoplasty operation, the nasal silicone splints in the nose are removed and the nasal cavity is aspirated and cleaned. After the 1st week and after the cyclical splints have been removed, there is no harm in air travel. It is useful to use oil-based humidifier before air travel.
About Total Recovery Time After Septoplasty Operation
Factors affecting recovery time after septoplasty operation:- compliance of the patient with the recommendations on intranasal care
- the healing characteristics of the patient
- humidity and other climate characteristics of the environment in which the patient lives
- healing features of the patient
- amount of surgical trauma
Depending on these characteristics, total recovery after septoplasty operation can be 6 weeks and longer. The recovery period may be prolonged, especially if you keep the nose dry and do not use moisturizing nasal drops. However, if you live in a house that is damp and close to the sea / ocean side (if you swim directly in the ocean or at sea), the total recovery time can be much shorter.
