Deviated Nose Surgery
All our rhinoplasty procedures are customized for achieving well-balanced facial features.
Deviated Nose Surgery
The nasal septum is the middle structure in the nose, made of cartilage, and separates the nasal passages into a right and left side. A deviated nose occurs when the nasal septum or bone is deviated or displaced.
Patients can either be born with a deviated septum, deviated bone or develop one due to trauma, such as breaking their nose. Often, there is no external deformity seen with a deviated septum, but patients can suffer various medical complications including difficulty breathing, recurrent or chronic sinus infections, sleep apnoea, recurrent nosebleeds, and other nasal/sinus issues.
Medications can be prescribed to help with such medical complications, but in order to correct a deviated nose, bone and septum should be fixed.
Deviated Nose Surgery can benefit people with:
- A bent or crooked nasal bridge
- Difficulty breathing
- An unpleasantly-shaped of nasal bridge
- A symmetric nostrils caused by deviation
How is Deviated Nose Surgery performed?
It is important to find the reason for the bone or septal deviation before surgery to help resolve the nasal problem and prevent re-occurrence. In a typical procedure, the special surgical technique involves breaking the nasal bone on each side and then re-configuring it to the desired straightness and width by osteotomy.
Also, the surgeon makes an incision on one side of the nose to access the septum. The mucous membrane, the protective covering of the septum, is lifted and then using osteotomy the surgeon breaks the nasal bone on each side, before rearranging it into a straight line and repositioning the mucous membrane.
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 protect the dorsum and keep it straight.
Duration: 30 min –1 Hour
Incision: On the columella
Stitch removal: 7 – 10 days after the procedure
Recovery period: 7 to 10 days
