There are two types of procedures. 1. SMR and 2. Septoplasty. Both of them depends on the type of deviation u have. U have not mentioned about how many times u have been affected by cold since 3 months, this gives the ENT specialist an idea whether to do the surgery or not. The surgery is a very simple procedure where it might last for about one hour, but the recovery might last 2 - 3 weeks(precautions as advised). Cost depends where you want the procedure to be done. the procedure can be done on Day surgery basis and you can go home in the evening.
