Can a deviated septum be fixed during rhinoplasty surgery and how is this achieved?
Fixing a deviated septum at the same time as a cosmetic rhinoplasty is a very common thing and I perform this kind of septo-rhinoplasty very frequently. A deviated septum can make breathing more difficult and cause nasal airway obstruction. It can also attribute to a crooked nose so fixing the nose and septum go hand in hand many times. Often the functional portion which accounts for a small portion of the total surgical cost may be covered by insurance.
