Septoplasty: Septoplasty is the straightening of the wall that separates the two nasal cavities. This surgery entails the partial removal and reshaping of the cartilage and bone that make up the septum, and is performed through an incision inside the nose. Splinting of the septum to ensure healing of the septum in the desired position is frequently but not always employed. Postoperative pain is generally mild to moderate. Bloody spotting usually lasts one to two days following surgery.
