Question : In what way is septoplasty different from rhinoplasty?
Answer : Septoplasty refers to a surgery to straighten the bone and cartilage inside the nose. This improves breathing. Rhinoplasty is an operation where the shape of the nose is changed, usually for aesthetic reasons. Rhinoplasty can also improve the breathing. It is also important to know that rhinoplasty can also make the breathing worse; therefore, it is important to make sure that the surgeon is aware of how to make sure that the rhinoplasty not only improves the appearance but also improves the breathing.
