The combination of septoplasty and rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can be done on its own. However, when septoplasty is combined with rhinoplasty, it is called septorhinoplasty.

Septorhinoplasty is commonly done when patients want improvement of both the functional (breathing) and aesthetic (cosmetic) aspects of the nose. This is done at the same time because the incisions and approach are shared between the two procedures and the cartilage taken out during septoplasty can be used for structuring in rhinoplasty.
