Hello-A septoplasty is designed only to improve breathing, while a rhinoplasty can improve breathing as well as change appearance. Costs will vary widely by your location and the surgeon you visit. If there are still breathing concerns, sometimes your out of pocket costs will be slightly reduced because insurance pays for the portion of surgery to correct breathing. If you are concerned with nasal breathing in addition to appearance, I recommend consultation with a facial plastic surgeon or otolaryngologist who specializes in rhinoplasty surgery. Many surgeons offer low-cost cosmetic consultations, and a functional (breathing) consultation would be covered by insurance. Best wishes.
