Septoplasty

Overview

Septoplasty is a surgical course of action that is undertaken to correct the malformation of the nasal septum. In simple language, the procedure encompasses straightening the cartilage and the bone departing the space between the two nostrils. Deviated septum enhances the risk of blocking a side of the nose and adds difficulty to breathe and further elevates the risk of sinus due to improper air drainage. Through Septoplasty the crooked nasal spectrum is positioned correctly, utilising the remaining cartilage and bone, in the middle of the nose.
