In brief: Nasal surgery

Septoplasty and rhinoplasty are two surgeries commonly performed together. Because the outside shape of the nose and inside shape are in many ways related to one another, and because the outside and inside may be surgically opened together, it makes sense to work on the outer appearance (rhinoplasty) and nasal breathing (septum, which is the midline divider between the nostrils) at the same time.

In brief: Nasal surgery

Septo - stands for correction of septal deviations, rhinoplasty - stands for surgery to correct or improve the appearance of the nose.
Usually this is a cosmetic surgery and the procedures are done at the same time.
