Septoplasty irrigation pressure, can it deviate the septum?
Doctor Answers 1
Nasal irrigation after nasal septorhinoplasty
What you experienced was the flow of nasal irrigation moving from your right nostril to the left nostril causing pressure. This can’t cause septal deviation, but excessive pressure may lead to septal perforation. Good luck and good healing.
