Septoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to straighten a deviated nasal septum that causes difficulty in breathing, nasal bleeding, and facial pain. The patient is put under local or general anaesthesia. The surgeon starts by making an incision on one side of the patient’s nose to gain access to the septum. He then lifts the mucous membrane and moves the deviated septum into its right position. The procedure is ended with repositioning of the mucous membrane.
