SEPTOPLASTY 2017-11-13T23:29:06+00:00


Patients with nasal obstruction but without external abnormality may need a septoplasty procedure.  This is usually done without any external scars but occasionally an extra-corporeal septoplasty (the septum is removed totally or sub-totally, re-fashioned surgically and reinserted back into the nose) needs to be carried out, through an external approach which requires a small external incision.
