One type of rhinoplasty procedure that is often necessary for nasal correction is known as septoplasty. Septoplasty surgery is used to correct aspects of the nasal septum.
The nasal septum is vertically oriented and found in the center of the nose, separating the nostrils. It is composed of bone and cartilage.
When a person’s septum is misaligned or misshapen, this can impact their airflow and thus their ability to breathe unimpeded. It can also cause one’s nose to look malformed. With septoplasty, proper breathing and appearance can be restored.
