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. The ENT surgeon will work in conjunction with a plastic surgeon to perform those procedures.
