Septoplasty New York

Published: February 16, 2010

A deviated septum is when the center dividing wall of the nose is crooked. It can be straightened, improving breathing without any cosmetic change to the nose externally. However, it is frequently adressed in rhinoplasty as well. Failure to recognize a deviated septum in rhinoplasty may lead to breathing difficulties after surgery, so it should be checked first.
