One of the most common causes of a crooked nose is a nasal injury, typically a broken nose. But when many people break their nose, they don’t just end up with a crooked nose – they also get a deviated septum.
When a deviated septum is part of a crooked nose, the cosmetic surgeon must perform a septoplasty rhinoplasty procedure to fix it before correcting any other part of the nose. During a
septoplasty, the surgeon makes a small incision in the septum, followed by an external nasal incision when necessary. After the septal skin is raised, bone and cartilage is removed from the septum to make it straight. Once this is complete, the surgeon redrapes the skin and stitches shut the incision(s).
