Sometimes deviated nose is a congenital irregularity or malformation which may or may not interfere with proper nasal functioning.
But some patient may have fallen facedown, suffered a sports injury, or been punched in the nose.
The deviated nose may require surgery to restore proper breathing and for aesthetic reasons.
Deviated nose rhinoplasty has a complex procedure, Surgeon has to consider the nasal bone, cartilage, septal cartilage, and function.
In order to straighten the nose, the nasal septum must be repositioned, along with the nasal bones.
This is necessary because if the septal deviation is not addressed, it may continue to exert pressure to push the nose off center.
Furthermore, when a deviated nose has resulted from physical trauma, nasal bones are typically shifted. This means that, unless treated at the time of the injury, the bone will heal in a crooked position.
Typically, six weeks after the injury, controlled bone cuts, (osteotomies) can be performed by the surgeon, and the nose can be properly repaired.
If you have deviated nose, you should contact a highly experienced surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty.
