Traditional septoplasty is an operation used to correct a deviated septum. During this surgery, the septum is aligned and repositioned to the middle of the nose, where it can allow for equal airflow between the nasal passageways.
Sometimes, removing crooked areas of the septum is necessary during this operation. This type of surgery will not change the appearance of the nose.
It is performed under general anesthesia and a full recovery takes a few months.
