My nose is very crooked and I also have trouble breathing at night. Am I a candidate for a Rhinoplasty?

Crooked nose correction for 15 years old
The cause of the obstruction is most likely deviation of the nasal septum, but often, enlargement of the turbinates also play a part. Though it is best to address both the aesthetic and functional problems at the same time when your nose structure has fully matured, your blocked nose should still be addressed as soon as possible.
Functional correction of the nose should be covered by insurance but the aesthetic side is usually not.
