Open approach for septoplasty?
The open approach is usually used for rhinoplasty, not a septoplasty. If the shape of the nose has changed after the your surgical procedure, then you had a rhinoplasty procedure, not a septoplasty. It's always best to check with your operative surgeon, since they're the one that perform your surgery. For more information about the differences between a rhinoplasty and a septoplasty, please see the video below
