Extracorporeal Septoplasty : 5 years after an In-situ “Extracorporeal Septoplasty” as part of a Septorhinoplasty


These pictures have been produced here with the kind consent of this young patient for teaching purposes
Extracorporeal Septoplasty is an advanced form of Septoplasty where the septal components are removed outside the body and replaced back after making the desired corrections. Although increasingly finding acceptance, I feel in my hands I rarely need to take out these components out completely. I perform what I call an “in-situ Extracorporeal”Septoplasty … preserving as much of the good septum possible and build around it.
This is a five year result with very satisfactory Functional & Cosmetic results.
