Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty & Septorhinoplasty Surgery

Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty & Septorhinoplasty Surgery


Rhinoplasty / nose job / nasal shaping surgery is a surgical procedure, performed to improve the function (reconstructive surgery) and/or the appearance (cosmetic surgery) of the human nose. Septoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure done to straighten the nasal septum (deviated nasal septum surgery), the central partition between the two nasal cavities. When it deviates into one of the nasal cavities, it narrows that cavity and impedes airflow. A deviated nasal septum is deemed significant when it causes a crooked nose in appearance or causes other symptoms such as sinus blockage, nasal congestion, sinus infection, sinusitis, difficulty in breathing, snoring & sleep apnoea. Often, a septoplasty is combined with a rhinoplasty for cosmetic correction of the deformities of the external nasal framework. The combination of a septoplasty to straighten the nose & a rhinoplasty to make the nose cosmetically better looking is called a septorhinoplasty (functional + cosmetic correction of nose). The nasal septum can bend to one side or another as a part of normal growth during childhood and puberty. Also, the septum can be deviated at birth (congenital) or because of an injury (nasal trauma / nasal fracture), such as a broken nose. A septorhinoplasty is performed to correct a deviated nasal septum, a crooked nose, & other symptoms such as sinus blockage, sinusitis, difficulty in breathing, snoring & sleep apnea.
