What is Deviated Nose Surgery?
Deviated nose refers to a condition where the nasal septum is deviated or displaced. The nasal septum, made of cartilage and bone, divides the nasal passage into the right and left sides. Deviated septum creates not only aesthetical but also functional problems. Thus, deviated nose surgery can improve the shape of the nose aesthetically and resolve its functional problems at the same time.
Some people are born with a deviated septum, while others develop it as a result of trauma or injury. A deviated septum is very common. You may have a severely deviated septum with very severe symptoms, such as difficulty in breathing, headaches, and chronic infections; or a slightly deviated septum with mild or no symptoms.
Deviated Nose Surgery is recommended if:
General anesthesia or sedation
5- 7 days after surgery

Deviated Nose Surgery Methods
1. Alar Cartilage Repositioning
This is the most frequently used approach to fix a deviated nose.
It is especially implemented to correct the asymmetry in the cartilage of the nose tip
Nasal osteotomy is the surgical method that dissects the deviated nasal bone and repositions it in a proper location.
3. Deviated septum correction
In the case of a severely deviated septum, it can be improved by cutting and removing part of the septum.
The the cartilage harvested in this procedure may be used in nose tip plastic surgery if it is performed altogether.
4. Hypertrophied Inferior Turbinate Correction
Difficulties in breathing, caused by an obstructed air passage due to hypertrophied inferior turbinate, can be easily treated by high frequency therapy.
