What is Deviated Nose Surgery?

Deviated nose surgery (i.e. deviated septum) creates a beautiful nose shape and improves breathing by realigning the septum. To get the patient out of the problems that come with it such as nasal obstruction, rhinitis, and headaches, through deviated nose surgery The shape and function of the nose will be improved significantly. If the nasal septum is also deformed, other symptoms such as nasal obstruction (stuffy nose) can occur and cause issues in the patient’s everyday life. A nose consists of four parts: the nasal bones, upper lateral cartilages, the nasal tip cartilage (nasal cartilage), and nasal septum. If any of them were to not function properly, the issue will cause a deviated nose. Surgical procedure varies depending on the deviation of part of the nose of the patient.


We Recommend The Deviated Nose Correction Surgery In The Following Cases:

  • Patients whose faces are asymmetric due to a deviated nose.
  • Patients whose noses are not seriously deviated but suffer from nasal obstruction or other nose diseases.
  • Patients with asymmetric nostrils.
  • Patients whose noses ended up deviated after a prior rhinoplasty procedure.

The camouflage method is a simple procedure that corrects a slightly deviated nose through cartilage grafting or dermis grafting. Most cases are corrected with simple procedures. Corrective rhinoplasty however is recommended for those who have a seriously deviated nose when different parts are misaligned. If the patient suffers from a deviated nose by nasal bone, nasal osteotomy will be performed. Nasal Osteotomy is a surgical procedure that corrects the location of the nasal bones by vertically cutting both sides and the central part of the nose. It is considered as one of the most basic procedures. If the nasal cartilage is the cause of the deviation, there are a couple of  surgical methods to correct the deviated cartilages from the middle to the tip of the nose. In case of a deviated nose tip or nasal bridge, its cartilages, alar cartilages, or septal nasal cartilages should be corrected. The nasal septum, consisting of bones and cartilages, is the part of the nose: The part that is dividing the two nostrils.


It can be considered as the columella supporting the nasal bridge. Nasal septum deviation is a physical misinformation of the nose caused by the displacement of the nasal septum. It’s also known as a deviated septum. When correcting a deviated nose, the doctor will check if it’s accompanied by a deviated septum, in which case it should be corrected as well. If you are suffering from nasal obstruction resulting from the inferior nasal concha, we cut a small part of the inferior nasal concha off or downsize it through a high-frequency procedure during the deviated nose correction. This procedure can relieve breathing difficulty and nasal obstruction symptoms by widening the inner space of the nose. The nasal valve is divided into an external nasal valve located in the area of the nostrils and an internal nasal valve located in the upper area of the nasal valve area between the anterior septum and the caudal lateral cartilage. If two valves are abnormal, it may cause a stuffy nose. In addition, to correct the deviated nose, it is essential to identify and correct the abnormality of the valve in the second nose surgery.


The deviated nose  surgery takes about 1.5 hour to 2 hours and after about a week, the stitches will be removed, then the patient can resume his or her normal life.
