Hi
You have right sided deviated nasal septum other fundings are secondary to the deviation... Once it's corrected surgically other fundings will vanish over the time with proper care and treatment...SMR and septoplasty are available options for you...Submucous resection (SMR) is an extensive resection of cartilage and bone, including part of the vomer and part of the perpendicular plate of the ethmoid. A 1-cm caudal and dorsal strut is typically left to support the lower two thirds of the nose.
Conversely, septoplasty is a tissue-sparing procedure. In most situations, the area of deviation is corrected or resected in order to leave behind as much cartilage and bone as possible. Cartilage resection is minimized, particularly when the deviation is located in a structurally vulnerable area (eg, caudal and dorsal regions). In such cases, the cartilage can be repositioned, reshaped, or recontoured using a variety of methods...Consult nearest ent surgeon they will help you further
