What exactly is a Septoplasty?
Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct and straighten a deviated septum. The nasal septum is the wall between the nostrils that separates the two nasal passages, supporting the nose and directing airflow.
The septum is made of thin bone in the back and cartilage in the front. A deviated septum occurs when the cartilage or bone is not straight. A crooked septum can make breathing difficult, potentially leading to snoring and sleep apnea.
