Rhinoplasty- mild hump and crooked
If the nose is crooked in the region of the bony dorsum (top 1/3) , you will likely require ostotomies to reposition the bones.
If the nose appears crooked in the cartilagionous mid 1/3 region you may require work on the septum or use a cartilage onlay graft.
It is difficult to comment on these options without seeing the nose straight on. You may require a combination of these techniques.
Nevertheless, all techniques mentioned are very safe and reliable.
