What’s Crooked Nose?
A crooked nose, also known as a deviated septum, is a condition in which the nasal septum (the partition that separates the nostrils) is displaced or bent to one side. This can cause difficulty breathing, as well as a noticeable asymmetry in the appearance of the nose.
Why do I have a Crooked Nose?
There are several causes for a crooked nose, including congenital defects, injuries, and genetics. Congenital defects occur when the nose does not develop properly during fetal development, while injuries can cause the nose to become crooked as a result of trauma or force. Genetics can also play a role, as a family history of a deviated septum may increase the likelihood of developing the condition.
How to fix a Crooked Nose?
For those who are unhappy with the appearance of their crooked nose or experiencing difficulty breathing, The Clinic Room offers surgical and non-surgical options to correct the condition.
Crooked Nose Surgery
Surgical correction, also known as rhinoplasty, is a procedure that involves reshaping the nose to improve its symmetry and function. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and typically takes several hours to complete. Recovery time can vary, but patients can expect to experience some swelling and bruising for several weeks following the procedure.
Dermal Fillers for Crooked Nose
For those who are not ready for surgery, or who want a non-surgical solution, The Clinic Room offers non-surgical nose reshaping using dermal fillers. This non-invasive procedure involves injecting a dermal filler into specific areas of the nose to improve its shape and symmetry. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, with results visible immediately and can last for several months.
Regardless of whether you choose surgery or a non-surgical option, The Clinic Room's team of experienced professionals will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired outcome.
