i had septoplasty and tubinate reduction done last week.i had this procedure without splints.
results are preety nice, my nose is looking preety straight than before, sweeling was gone just after two days and i am breathing comfortably not 100%.my doctor told me that it will take 3 weeks for full breathing through my nose.
the only mess was whwn my doctor pull out my packing after second day of surgery. i felt most terrible pain of my life but for very short period. so far i am happy with result. if any one advised to done this procedure you should done it.
