Fixing the appearance of an old broken nose
I’m from Newport Beach and I have a very noticeable twisted nose due to breaking it when I was younger. How is this fixed?
A twisted nose is corrected with surgery. This surgery usually incorporates rhinoplasty (changing the appearance of the nose) as well as addressing a deviated nasal septum (septoplasty). Sometimes insurance may cover a portion of the procedure. A twisted nose may be due to a variety of factors, including asymmetry of the nasal bones, deviated nasal septum, asymmetries of the nasal cartilages. Furthermore, a twisted nose may be a reflection of further facial asymmetries…a proper facial analysis will assist in the evaluation of facial symmetry. Achieving a perfectly straight nose in the presence of facial asymmetries can be very challenging; however, surgery to achieve a both a straighter nose and improved nasal airway are potential goals.
