Very common: This is a common combinatiion. However you must understand that while a deviated septum repair may improve your breathing by opening up you airway, a cosmetic rhinoplasty will more frequently cause your airway to be smaller.

Very common: Septoplasty with rhinoplasty is very common, safe and best done together as grafts for the rhinoplasty are usually taken from the septum.

Septorhinoplasty: Septoplasty is performed commonly in the context of rhinoplasty. Be sure to have your nose evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
