    http//www.rhinoplastyspecialist.com http//www.spaldingplasticsurg ery.com Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct the shape of the septum of the nose. The goal of this procedure is to correct defects or deformities of the septum. The nasal septum is the separation between the two nostrils. In adults, the septum is composed partly of cartilage and partly of bone. Septal deviations are either congenital (present from birth) or develop as a result of an injury. Most people with deviated septa do not develop symptoms. It is typically only the most severely deformed septa that produce significant symptoms and require surgical intervention. However, many septoplasties are performed during rhinoplasty procedures, which are most often performed for cosmetic purposes. Septoplasty is performed to correct a crooked (deviated) or dislocated septum, often as part of plastic surgery of the nose (rhinoplasty). The nasal septum has three functions to support the nose, to regulate air flow, and to support the mucous membranes (mucosa) of the nose. Septoplasty is done to correct the shape of the nose caused by a deformed septum or correct deregulated airflow caused by a deviated septum. Septoplasty is often needed when the patient is having an operation to reduce the size of the nose (reductive rhinoplasty), because this operation usually reduces the amount of breathing space in the nose. Nasal obstruction is one of the most common problems that brings a patient into a physicians office, and septal deviation is a frequent structural etiology. As a result, surgical correction of septal deviation is the third most common head and neck procedure in the United States, and it generally is performed to improve quality of life. Presently, a variety of additional indications exists for septoplasty, from intractable epistaxis to harvesting cartilage for use in rhinoplasty The nose plays a major role in facial aesthetics. Simply narrowing the bridge, perfecting the tip, and removing ridges through rhinoplasty can improve your appearance and enhance surrounding features. During the nose reshaping procedure, surgeons use the open or closed rhinoplasty technique to reshape nasal cartilage so the nose blends in with surrounding features. The open approach involves the creation of an external incision across the columella; in the closed technique, surgeons perform surgery through incisons that are made in the nostrils. The benefit of the open rhinoplasty method is that it provides the surgeon unrestricted access to nasal cartilage and bone. http//www.rhinoplastyspecialist.com http//www.spaldingplasticsu rgery.com 120 S.
