Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to straighten the septum. Surgery is only needed when breathing problems or snoring do not get better with non-surgical treatments. Sometime a septoplasty is needed when the patient needs sinus surgery. This is because a severely deviated septum may make it difficult to perform the sinus surgery.
This operation usually takes 60-90 minutes and most people have a quick recovery time.
