Septorhinoplasty for deviated septum and crooked nose
A rhinoplasty is performed for cosmetic purposes to straighten a crooked nose. Medial and lateral osteotomies of the nasal bones will straighten them. Occasionally a spreader graft composed of the patient's own cartilage is also required to be placed underneath a concave upper lateral cartilage in the mid vault area.
A septoplasty and rhinoplasty can be performed at the same time under one anesthetic. Even in experienced rhinoplasty surgeon's hands at 10-15% touch-up rate is acceptable
