Question:I think I have damaged my septoplasty. Answer: In my experience of many years in practice performing many nasal septoplasty and rhinoplasty surgical procedures, it is not too frequent for my patients to seek my attention because they bumped their nose postoperatively. It is extremely rare that this bump will destroy the results of a well performed septoplasty. After bumping the nose, bleeding, pain and numbness may result, but they are not indications of distorted the structure of the septoplasty. Although you can never be certain without having your nose examine by your surgeon, it is unlikely that you caused any significant damage to the work that was performed on your nose.

overall care was good and the hospital staff and in the office are excellant
