Rhinoplasty and septoplasty procedure

 A rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish straightening a crooked and deviated columella. A septoplasty is performed to straighten a deviated nasal septum when there is nasal obstruction present in the back of the nose. A septoplasty  is performed to improve airflow dynamics through the nose. For more information about the differences between both procedures, please see the link and the video below
