What is a septoplasty when is done in combination with a rhinoplasty?

A functional septoplasty is a procedure that may be performed at the same time as a rhinoplasty in order to straighten the septum, which divides the left and right sides of the nose on the inside of the nose to help one’s breathing.  Sometimes, cartilage is borrowed from the septum as part of a rhinoplasty.
