Septoplasty for Deviated Septum
Thank you for sharing your question and photos. Fixing the deviated septum, called a “septoplasty”, is very commonly paired with cosmetic rhinoplasty procedures. Depending on the degree of deviation, you may be able to get a portion of your procedure covered by your medical insurance. For the rhinoplasty, it is important to consult with a surgeon who agrees with your aesthetic goals. In my practice, I like to use 3-D Volumetric photos to communicate realistic surgical outcomes for my patients. I recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon with an ENT (Ear, Nose, & Throat) background. This will ensure that your surgeon is trained in both septoplasty and rhinoplasty techniques.
Thank you for the question and the photo! You may want to consider septoplasty, a procedure used to correct a deviated septum. It can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or together with a rhinoplasty (septorhinoplasty). Given the nature of your concerns, I believe you are an excellent candidate since even slight changes to the shape of your nose can improve your breathing, produce a dramatic effect on your appearance, and fill you with self-confidence.
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon would be the best way to fully assess your needs and guarantee a reliable medical advice. Best of luck! Dr. Michael Omidi.
Great question. Nose deviation is very common and can be caused by a number of factors from deviated septum to deviated nasal bones to asymmetric facial halves. Often there are a few factors together that create nasal deviation. Because of this it will be important to have a plastic surgeon take a look at you in person and decide what would be best to help you achieve the result that you want. The good news is that the nose can be re-shaped in a number of different ways to help you achieve an overall better appearance.All the best,Dr. Remus Repta
Rhinoplasty, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
