Is a septoplasty worth it in terms of relieved symptoms and improved appearance?Ear, Nose & Throat Plastic Surgery
Hi, I’d like to ask whether a septoplasty is worth it in terms of cosmesis, and helping with my symptoms of difficulty breathing and nasal congestion. Thank you!
Septoplasty alone to address a deviated nasal septum is not meant to change the shape and appearance of your nose, it is to improve the breathing and nasal obstruction.
A rhinoplasty can also be done at the same time (Septorhinoplasty) to change the shape of the nose.
Septorhinoplasty can be functional or cosmetic, this will depend on the assessment by your surgeon at the time of consultation.
