Nose SurgeryDEVIATED NOSE

deviated nose

A deviated nose occurs when the nasal septum is deviated or displaced. This condition can block the nasal passage, causing various medical complications but mainly difficulty in breathing. In mild cases of deviation, medications can be used to help with medical complications, but in order to correct a deviated septum, surgery is necessary.

Deviated Nose Surgery can Benefit

  1. 1. People with a bent or crooked nasal bridge
  2. 2. People with difficulty breathing
  3. 3. People with an unpleasantly-shaped of nasal bridge
  4. 4. People with asymmetric nostrils caused by deviation

How is Deviated Nose Surgery performed?

It is important to find the reason for the septal deviation before surgery. This will help to solve the nasal problem and prevent reoccurance. The deviated nasal bone or septal cartilage can be fixed by osteotomy, which breaks the nasal bone on each side to rearrange it into straight line. Also, the cartilage can be grafted to reshape the tip to achieve a straighter look. After surgery, it is necessary to wear a splint for a few days on the nasal bridge to keep the dorsum safe and straight.
