Preoperative Phase

Our surgeons will recommend an initial screening program before you have blocked nose surgery. This program consists mainly of a nose examination and general screening. Furthermore, discussing your pre-existing medical and allergy issues and any previous operations with our specialists at this stage is critical in assisting our surgeons in developing an appropriate treatment plan that suits you.

After our doctors assess you and discuss your surgical goals, a date is set for the procedure.

Our surgeons will advise you to do certain things before the treatment to achieve the best possible results. Here are some of the things they might expect from you.

  • Maintaining hydration and consuming a lot of liquids together with a balanced diet is crucial. Following a rigorous diet can ensure that incision wounds heal quickly.
  • Two weeks before the procedure, you might need to cease taking previous medications, including Aspirin, NSAIDs, blood-thinning drugs, and herbal supplements. These drugs frequently result in severe bleeding during surgery and raise the danger of heart problems when receiving anaesthesia.
  • Also crucial is avoiding direct sun exposure, which can colour incision lines and cause pigmented scars.
  • Avoiding nicotine and smoking, which have similar effects, would be beneficial. Smoking can also damage muscle tone and the overall outcomes of the operation. It is recommended to stop smoking at least 3–4 weeks before the procedure.
  • Avoid eating anything after midnight the night before the surgery to aid your anaesthesia the next day. On the day of the procedure, arrive at the clinic at least a couple of hours beforehand. Avoid wearing any makeup or nail polish, and dress comfortably.

The Blocked Nose Surgery (Operative phase)

Blocked nose surgery is a non-invasive surgery. With the experience and competency of our surgical team, this will be a painless procedure. Before starting the procedure, the attending surgeon will ensure the procedure the comfortable for you using either general anaesthesia or sedatives. Subsequently, an endotracheal tube is then secured on the left corner of your mouth. To keep your airway open for oxygenation. Your eyes are covered with a transparent covering for protection while exposing the nose to the surgeon. Your nasal cavities are packed with oxymetazoline-soaked cotton to decongest them. The side affected more is operated on before the next; however, if this side is more blocked, the surgeon may start with the more open side.

An endoscope(a small camera) is introduced for a better view and access. Other specialized instruments are also used through the nostrils to enlarge the sinus openings, remove the blockage, or make corrections to the sinus.

 Once the inflamed sinus has been cleared or the other cause of blockage drained normal sinus drainage will be restored. You must begin the post-operative phase of your nasal congestion treatment immediately for optimal results.

The nose wound will heal quickly, and your breathing will likely improve shortly after the procedure. However, the overall healing process can be slow. Cartilage and other nasal tissues can take up to a year to fully settle into their new shape.

Most people experience no ongoing symptoms after surgery. In some cases, however, the cartilage and nasal tissues shift over time, eventually blocking airflow through the nose again. This means a second surgery will further reshape the nose and septum.

Many people suffer from adenoids. This patient was experiencing blockage in the nose and Turbinate hypertrophy. Dr Bashar Bizrah performed surgery while the patient was under local anaesthesia. As you can see, an outstanding result was achieved immediately after the surgery.

Septoplasty corrects a deviated nasal septum or another septal deformity that can obstruct airflow through the nose and cause difficulty breathing. Your nasal septum divides your nasal cavity into left and right sides and ends at your nostrils.

You will have a drip pad under your nose to collect mucus and blood. Change it only when it bleeds through. You may have to do it every hour for 24 hours after surgery. You will be able to return to work or school in a few days and to your routine in about 3 weeks.

Pain is relieved within 2-3 weeks after surgery. Normal breathing is also restored within this time. However, it would help if you were consistent with your post-operative visits for optimal results.

No, you should not. At Bizrahmed, we provide chauffeur services for all our clients.

During a Septoplasty, the surgeon will attempt to straighten bent cartilage and bone in the septum. Firstly, they lift the mucosa lining covering the cartilage and bone. The surgeon then reshapes the cartilage and bone, sometimes removing portions. After that, they will then put the lining back in place.

You can breathe much better after the procedure, but it will get clogged over the next few days due to mucous and blood. During your follow-up visit, you will clean out your nose, and you should be able to breathe much better afterwards.

In severe cases, doctors may recommend Septoplasty, a minor surgical procedure to correct the deviated septum. In the surgery, the doctor straightens and pulls the septum back to its original place.

It's best to maintain an elevated sleeping position after your surgery. If you sleep on your side, pressure is applied to your nose and will make you uncomfortable.

Blocked nose surgery with Dr. Bizrah is associated with minimal or no risk.
