Can septoplasty or functional nasal surgery be combined with cosmetic rhinoplasty?

Yes. Combining septoplasty with rhinoplasty is beneficial for several reasons. First, by combining surgery, insurance may cover a portion of the procedure, and you may save money on fees. Secondly, cartilage modified from the nasal septum during the septoplasty may be used for grafts during the rhinoplasty. Dr. Chaboki may need to obtain cartilage from your ear or rib for grafts, if you have already had deviated septum surgery, since cartilage from the septum would not be available. Lastly, the recovery process following surgery would only be once, and you minimize downtime by avoiding two separate procedures.
