A septoplasty is a surgical procedure to straighten the nasal septum if it deviates. A deviated septum can cause difficulty breathing, recurrent rhinitis, or sinusitis. The procedure should take about 60 minutes, with a recovery of up to several weeks. Post-op swelling or discoloration is rare unless there are unusual complications.
