Deviated Nose and Septal Deviation Surgery

Deviated nose surgery and septal deviation surgery both address issues with nasal structure, but they target different aspects of the nose. Deviated nose surgery focuses on correcting the external appearance of the nose, ensuring it is straight and symmetrical by realigning the nasal bones and cartilage that may cause the nose to appear crooked. This can significantly enhance facial aesthetics and symmetry.

Septal deviation surgery, often referred to as septoplasty, specifically aims to correct the internal nasal septum that divides the nasal cavity. A deviated septum can lead to breathing difficulties, nasal congestion, and other functional problems.

While both surgeries may be performed simultaneously, septoplasty is primarily focused on improving nasal function by straightening the nasal septum, whereas deviated nose surgery addresses the overall external shape and appearance of the nose.

Definition of Deviated Nose

A deviated nose refers to a condition where the axis of the nose deviates from the central vertical axis of the face. In most cases, a deviated nose is accompanied by a deformed nasal bone and a deviated septum, making internal septoplasty essential.

When is Deviated Nose Surgery Needed?

1. When the balance of the face is disrupted due to a deviated nose.
2. When the nasal bone is bent due to trauma.
3. When the nose is genetically bent.
4. When you want to improve both function and beauty.

Symptoms of Deviated Nose

1. Septal deviation: A condition where the nasal septum, the cartilage and bone that divide the nasal cavity, is significantly off-center or crooked, leading to breathing difficulties.
2. Rhinitis: Inflammation of the nasal mucous membrane, often resulting in congestion, runny nose, sneezing, and itching.
3. Sinusitis: An inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses, which can cause blockages, discomfort, and nasal congestion.

Definition of Septal Deviation

Septal deviation refers to a condition where the septum inside the nose is bent. This condition often accompanies a bent nose, and even if the external shape of the nose appears normal, there can be issues with the bent septum. If symptoms are present, septoplasty is performed.

When is Septoplasty Needed?

1. In cases of rhinitis symptoms.
2. In cases of sinusitis.
3. In cases of nasal valve stenosis.
