How Will Septoplasty Affect my Nasal Drip?
Doctor Answers 1
A septoplasty will help to straighted a crooked nose that has occurred from a nasal fracture or a naturally occuring deviated septum. If you have severe nasal obstruction from your deviated septum it will open your nasal passages and improve your sense of smell. It also un-blocks the opening to some of your sinus passages and should be effective in decrease large amounts of mucus drainage that may occur with blocked sinuses.
