Nasal Septum Deviation

Crooked Nose

Nasal Septum Deviation

The anatomical structure that separating the two air passes inside the nose from each other, which contains a cartilage in the front side and a thin bone at the back, is shortly called the septum. This structure can be crooked due to various reasons, and this deformity is called the nasal septum deviation or crooked nose.

Nasal septum deviation impedes nasal respiration through single or double-sidedly; and as a result, impairs the physical performance, sleep quality, quality of life, and the health of the upper respiratory tract.

Nasal septum deviation sometimes exists only in a part of the septum, and cannot be noticed when looked at from outside; in other words, the external appearance of the nose has no     abnormality. In such cases, if any change is not desired in the external appearance of the nose, a surgical intervention from the inside for the elimination of the deviation can be adequate.

Mostly, nasal septum deviation is in a form that also distorts the external appearance of the nose. In such cases, both the deviation and external appearance of the nose are corrected during the same session of the same surgery.

It is extremely wrong to have the aesthetic appearance and the deviation of the nose corrected by different doctors in different sessions (mostly for financial reasons) because the cartilage structures, removed when correcting the nasal septum deviation, are used for correcting and strengthening the remaining support structures of the nose. Reconstructive surgeries of noses, from which septum cartilages have been removed previously, require taking cartilages from other parts of the body such as the ribs and pinnae, or using synthetic materials. Therefore, it is ideal to have both the nasal septum deviation and aesthetic appearance of the nose corrected in the same sessions.
