Crooked nose repair and breathing problems
A crooked nose is repaired cosmetically with a rhinoplasty procedure to straighten it. This involves medial and lateral osteotomies of the nasal bones and sometimes a cartilaginous spreader graft placed under the concave upper lateral cartilage.
For many examples of crooked nose repair in our practice, please see the links below
Your nose may be crooked from collapse of your left upper-lateral-cartilage, and possibly from a deviated nasal septum.
Hope this helps you.
