Should a revision rhinoplasty be performed if a severe deviated septum is present?
Doctor Answers 1
Septoplasty and rhinoplasty are two completely separate procedures
A functional septoplastyprocedure is performed to improve airflow dynamics in the nose, but will not change the shape of it. A rhinoplasty procedure is performed for cosmetic purposes and must be paid for by the patient. Both procedures can be performed simultaneously with one anesthesia and with one recovery period.
