Once you have a septal perforation, you should see a board certified plastic surgeon or ENT who has experience with septoplasty and septal perforation repair. Certain patients are good candidates for repair. Some perforations are better off left un-repaired. Saline sprays to moisturize the nasal lining is a good start. Some patients improve after placement of a silicone button.
Patients with a septal perforation should see a board certified surgeon.
