Deviation (nasal septum deviation)

It is a physical disorder of the nose, involving a displacement (curvature) of the nasal septum. A deviated septum is an abnormal condition in which the top of the cartilaginous ridge leans to the left or the right, causing obstruction of the affected nasal passage. It simply clogs the airway and can result in poor drainage of the sinuses. Both curvature and trouble breathing can be corrected by surgery. The word deviation meaning curvature does not exactly state the surgical intervention. Therefore, surgical correction of the nose curvature is defined as “Nasal Septum Deviation” in medical language. A deviated septum brings  many problems with it such as nasal congestion and headaches. Snoring, fatigue, difficulty smelling, nasal dryness, crusting or bleeding, halitosis, postnasal drip and nasal shape disorders are among the most common complaints.

The Deviation operation is completed within 1 hour maximum. It can be done under local or general anesthesia. The patient was discharged the same day after surgery. No buffer application so patient discomfort is reduced to a minimum. Thanks to Hilotheraphy  mask, there will be no post-operative swelling, bruising and pain. I see  patients 3 days after surgery for a check and they can return to their daily rituals in about 5 days.

Can I combine my Rhinoplasty surgery with Deviation?

This is a fairly common condition. For patients who are not satisfied with the aesthetic appearance of their nose, an aesthetic intervention will be held during their deviation surgery.

In such cases the patient should let the doctor know before the surgery so he/she can plan deviation together with the aesthetic surgery.

Doctor Goksel is not only a surgeon; he's an artist. I'm so happy I researched a lot until I found about him. I used to enter Turkish forums and had to use Google Translate in order to translate from Turkish to Arabic and then I knew about the doctor. (Revision Rhinoplasty)

I had a bad rhinoplasty surgery experience 2 years ago. Dr. Goksel fixed my collapsed nose with his experienced and skillful hands. My nose is very healthy and fits to my face perfectly. I thank him so much.

2.5 years ago Mr. Abdulkadir Goksel performed sinusitis, deviation and cosmetic surgery all together on my nose. I was having a lot of difficulties due to my chronic sinusitis problem. I have no complaints right now. Thank you so much.

Respiratory infections and migraine complaints were the reasons I met Dr. Goksel. I breath well now and I have no migraine complaints. Thank you so much.
