Septorhinoplasty

Septorhinoplasty at Oaks Hospital

What is a septorhinoplasty?

A septorhinoplasty is also known as a nose job. It is a dual-purpose operation. Firstly, it straightens or repairs your septum (the bone and cartilage in your nose that separates your nostrils). Secondly, it alters the shape of your nose. It is performed if you have breathing problems due to a deviated septum and you would like to change the way your nose looks.

A deviated septum is an off-centre or crooked bone and cartilage that divides your nasal cavity in half. Septoplasty repairs a deviated septum to improve your breathing. Rhinoplasty changes the appearance of your nose often using a graft or implant.

Septorhinoplasty involves making a cut to the skin-like lining inside your nose and lifting it off the cartilage and bone. This means that any scars will be invisible. Any bent cartilage and bone parts are removed and the remaining cartilage and bone are returned in a straight and central position.

Your surgeon may shave or remove some cartilage in the tip or hump of your nose. They can also straighten and narrow the nasal bones by breaking and then setting them.

Cartilage or bone grafts or an artificial implant might be needed to support or rebuild your nasal framework, correct your deviation and give your nose its shape.
