Nasal surgery without nasal packing

We can perform corrective rhinoplastic and septoplastic operations without needing nasal packing. This is possible thanks to our “chondroplastic” nasal surgical technique that we use (sophisticated reshaping of the nasal cartilage, rather than resection).

Used in combination with certain special internal stitches, this surgical method offers far superior stabilization during the post-operative healing phase. On top of that, this procedure is also much more pleasant, because not needing nasal packing means we can save our patients the associated pain and thus make the post-operative period a great deal easier for them. 

Also pleasant: the internal stitches we use here at our practice in Hamburg are self-resorbing and do not need to be taken out.
