Is Septorhinoplasty The Same As Rhinoplasty?
In a septorhinoplasty both the external shape of the nose is changed as well as surgery to fix a crooked septum. A crooked septum can obstruct the nasal airway and lead to nasal congestion or difficulty breathing through either nostril.
In a rhinoplasty, no surgery to the septum is performed.
How Long Does Septorhinoplasty Surgery Take?
This can vary depending on the complexity of the problem being treated. Usually the operation can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours on average.
