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, mainly breathing difficulty. In mild cases of deviation, medications can be used, but in order to correct a deviated septum, surgery is necessary.

Deviated Nose Surgery can benefit

  1. 1. People with bent or crooked nasal bridge
  2. 2. People with difficulty breathing
  3. 3. People with unpleasant shape of nasal bridge
  4. 4. People with asymmetric nostrils from deviation

How is Deviated Nose Surgery performed?

It is important to find the reason for the septum deviation before surgery. This will help to solve the nasal problem and prevent recurrence. The deviated nasal bone or septum cartilage can be fixed by osteotomy, which breaks the nasal bone on each side to re-arranges it straight. Also, the cartilages can be grafted to reshape the tip straight. After surgery, it is necessary to wear a splint for a few days on the nasal bridge to keep the dorsum safe and straight.
