How can my septum be fixed? Do I need to get grafts or cartilage from another part of my body? (Phtoo)

Caudal Nasal Septal Deformity

It appears that you have a caudal nasal septal deformity caused by the end of your septum protruding abnormally into your left nostril/ vestibule. Often this deflection is associated with other deviated nasal septal abnormalities causing nasal airway obstruction. Depending on your physical examination, a traditional septoplasty with repositioning or resection of your caudal septum will correct this problem. Sometime more advanced rhinoplasty techniques or grafts are required for more severe cases. I recommend a consultation with an expert Facial Plastic Surgeon/ ENT for a surgical opinion.
