Rhinoplasty can be used to correct a crooked nose by repositioning the bones and cartilage to improve the alignment of the nose. A crooked nose can be caused by a variety of factors such as an injury, congenital condition or previous surgery.
During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will make small incisions inside the nose to access the underlying bone and cartilage. The surgeon will then reshape the bones and cartilage to straighten the nose, and then reposition the nose to improve the overall symmetry. The incisions will then be closed and the nose will be bandaged to support the new shape during healing. Recovery time can vary depending on the extent of the procedure, but in general, patients can expect some swelling and bruising for the first few weeks after the surgery. It is important to consult a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss if rhinoplasty is the right option for your crooked nose.
