4 Benefits of Combining Septoplasty With Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty and septoplasty are almost like the peanut butter and jelly of facial surgeries because they complement each other so well. For some patients, rhinoplasty surgery is accompanied by septoplasty to straighten out their septum and get the desired results from the former procedure.

Straightening the septum while reconstructing the nose can also help the surgeon straighten the exterior of the nose. If the septum is uneven, the outside of the nose will also be uneven. Many patients opt for both surgeries to prevent mishaps and undesirable results. If you’re considering both procedures, here are four benefits of combining septoplasty with rhinoplasty.

Cost Efficient

Getting both procedures done at once could save you money and time. Since rhinoplasty and septoplasty are done simultaneously, it will take less time and resources, which means you have fewer consultations and follow-up appointments. One procedure is much more cost-efficient than two.

Two Birds, One Stone

As stated before, undergoing both surgeries at once saves time, which is convenient. By getting both surgeries out of the way, you can reduce the number of appointments, consultations, and follow-up appointments. If you get rhinoplasty and septoplasty separately, you will have to wait until you’ve healed before you can get the other.

Short Recovery Time

Another benefit of combining septoplasty with rhinoplasty is the reduced recovery time. Simultaneous procedures will cut your recovery time in half! Rhinoplasty takes about a year to recover from, and septoplasty takes about two months, so you can resume regular activity in about a month by getting both surgeries at once!

Low Risk of Complications

All surgeries have risks, and get them done at different times can heighten the risk of complications. However, if you combine the procedures into one surgery, you cut those risks in half. This surgery is one and done—no waiting for the second procedure.
