Septorhinoplasty is a surgery to fix both your nose and your nasal septum- a procedure combining septoplasty and rhinoplasty septoplasty is the surgical process of fixing a deviated septum, which occurs when the cartilage or bone that separates your nostrils is out of position.
This procedure helps patients breathe with comfort using both nostrils even during episodes of cold or extreme temperatures. septoplasty also improves other functions of the nose including filtration, humidfication and temperature regulation of the air you breathe in, apart from also enhancing your sense of smell.
