Septoplasty is a surgical procedure done to fix specific nasal problems. Septoplasty is done to target the septum and its deviation. The deviated septum can be trauma related or due to genetics. A deviated septum is when the cartilage that separates your nasal way becomes out of position resulting in difficulty breathing in one or both sides of your nose. It is an off centered nasal wall that mainly causes trouble breathing and various other symptoms. Another reason for septoplasty would be constant sinus related complications.
Septoplasty and rhinoplasty both deal with the nose and its reconstruction. Although they both deal with the nose, they differ in purpose and results. A septoplasty targets the septum and how it affects the nasalway. Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery done to fix the appearance of the nose, but can also be done to improve breathing habits if warranted. Septoplasty is done solely to fix a problem with a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty is done mostly to reshape the nose. In comparison, septoplasty has a shorter recovery time than rhinoplasty. While they are separate surgeries than can be done in unison to reshape the nose and promote better breathing habits. Combining these two surgeries can result in a more aesthetically pleasing nose and improved functionality.

Septoplasty is a target based surgery meant to solve a specific problem. Unlike cosmetic surgeries, septoplasty is done to fix a troublesome problem. Therefore the benefits are concise and consistent with each surgery. One major benefit would be improved breathing. A deviated septum can hinder breathing and disrupt a person’s daily life. This surgery aims to change the patient’s breathing habits to improve their lives. Problems with sinuses also contribute to patients seeking septoplasty. Sinuses can cause headaches, infections and various other symptoms during each bout. Constant nosebleeds are also a contributing factor for patients to pursue this surgery.
We offer free insurance verifications for patients who need septoplasty. Septoplasty remains one of the few plastic surgeries that is mean to address a health problem. Insurance may be able to cover this surgery because of its targeted purpose. We accept major PPO insurance if qualified. If eligible, patients may also be able to couple a rhinoplasty cosmetic procedure with your septoplasty procedure.
