Are you experiencing impaired breathing? This and other nasal issues can often be solved with the aid of functional rhinoplasty. One of the main types of functional rhinoplasty is septoplasty surgery.
The septum, made up of cartilage and bone, is a central structure in the nose. With septoplasty surgery, a patient can have fractures in their nasal septum repaired. These may have resulted from a nasal trauma. Septoplasty can also be used to rid the nasal passages of small spurs or to straighten a crooked septum.
