Septoplasty is one of the most commonly performed operations in otolaryngology. It is considered extremely valuable in addressing multiple issues and patient complaints. Inferior turbinate surgery results in favorable outcomes and continues to be recommended as a treatment for turbinate hypertrophy not responsive to medical therapy. There are many operative methods used for turbinate surgery such as partial or total turbinectomy and submucosal resection. Laser-assisted conchotomy and Coblation-assisted partial turbinoplasty are minimally invasive procedures that have recently become common. This study provides a comprehensive review of septoplasty and inferior turbinate surgery including current concepts, historical background, classification, updated surgical techniques, and management of complications.
