The cost of septoplasty surgery in India ranges from Rs. 40,000 to 60,000 rupees, including all pre- and post-surgery costs needed for treatment. The cost is based on various factors such as the severity of the condition, the treatment required, the additional surgical procedures required, etc.
What is septoplasty?
Septoplasty entails straightening the nasal septum, i.e. the cartilaginous layer between the nose, to make the airways larger and easier to breathe. A rejected septum also increases the risk of sinus infections due to poor sinus drainage. To ensure better functioning, treatment and aesthetics, the septoplasty procedure can be combined with other procedures such as turbine plastics, septoplasty, rhinoplasty, etc.

When does a doctor recommend septoplasty?
More than 50% of the human population have a slightly curved septum, especially in childhood and childhood. However, severe deviation of the nasal septum can lead to serious difficulties such as breathing, loud snoring, recurrent sinus infections, etc.
Septoplasty is usually recommended if the deviation of the septum causes serious problems such as:
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Breathing through the mouth
- Recurrent sinus infections
- Increased nasal bleeding, ie, nasal bleeding
- Increased headache due to sinus infections
Which doctor to consult for septoplasty?
Usually septoplasty is performed by an experienced ENT specialist. However, a plastic surgeon with septoplasty certification can also perform septoplasty, especially if the patient underwent only septoplasty or rhinoseptoplasty surgery.
What factors affect the cost of septoplasty in India?
The cost of septoplasty in India depends on many factors such as:
Choice of city and hospital
Like all other treatments, the cost of septoplasty in a city can be a little higher than in a city without a subway. The cost of hospitalization depends on the type of hospital chosen by the patient. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, but sometimes the patient is hospitalized for a day to make sure there are no complications.
Severity of symptoms (deviation)
The total cost of septoplasty treatment also depends on the severity of symptoms / degree of deviation. If the patient has nasal polyps or other breathing-related problems, then the cost of surgery may be higher than if the patient only needed septal correction.
Additional surgery is required
If the patient has additional health problems due to narrow airways such as sinusitis, adenoiditis, snoring, etc., then the patient may need additional surgery for complete recovery. Similarly, septoplasty does not provide aesthetic improvement of the nose, so it can be combined with rhinoplasty for a better appearance.
Postoperative care and complications
Postoperative care may vary depending on the type of (additional) surgery being performed. Although septoplasty is safe, it is a major operation and can cause postoperative complications such as pain, nausea, airway obstruction, bleeding, etc. Thus, proper postoperative care is required for complete recovery.
The fee for a surgeon’s consultation and surgery depends on his qualifications and experience. An experienced surgeon is more likely to successfully complete a treatment without complications.
The cost of diagnostic tests
For the procedure to be successful, it is necessary to make the correct diagnosis to determine the degree of deviation and the amount of correction required. The cost of diagnostic tests is usually required for septoplasty:
- X-ray of the sinuses: rupees. 250- rupees 750
- Visualization tests: Rs. 1500 – rupees 4000
- Endoscopy: Rs 1500-2000 Rs
If additional surgery is performed, additional diagnostic tests, such as tissue culture, may be required.
Septoplasty treatment is covered by most health insurance policies. However, the amount of coverage depends on the conditions of the policy. If you are unsure of your coverage, you should contact your insurance provider for information on the terms of your policy.
