features of deviated nose correction

A nose that is crooked to one or multiple ways is referred to deviation of nose.
A deviated nose is not only unpleasant aesthetically but also is able to cause functional problem
such as airway blockage.

There are 3 types of nose deviation. C-shaped or S-shaped deviation has the nose tip
correctly placed in the center of face, but an oblique shaped nose has its tip turned to a side.
Different shapes of deviation require different approaches by skilled and experienced surgeons.

surgical methods of deviated nose correction
■ Slight Deviation
Silicone is trimmed and inserted onto the
nose bridge for a straightening effect.
Also, protruding bumps are filed, and
depressed spot is filled with implant to
make a straight nose.
■ Severe Deviation
Correction of severe deviation requires
resection of the entire nose bone

structure after protruding cartilage and
bone sections are removed. Crooked
nostrils can also be corrected during the
procedure of straightening nose bones.
Because most of these cases are caused
by the deviated nasal septum, it is
important that the nasal septum is
corrected to prevent recurrence of nose
