Can Other Procedures Be Combined With a Septoplasty?

A septoplasty can be frequently combined with turbinate reductions, and/or balloon sinuplasty and functional endoscopic sinus surgery. These procedures should not leave any bruising or facial swelling. A septoplasty can also be performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty (nose job), and if this happens bruising and swelling are more common. For patients interested in altering the shape of the nose, Dr. Colin, a double board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and Rhinoplasty expert, is available in our practice to perform these procedures.  Please visit for more information about rhinoplasty.
