Causes of a crooked nose
The crooked nose can be caused from birth, trauma to the nose, an accident, or due to previous nose surgery. A crooked nose is often associated with overall facial asymmetry and difficulty breathing.
Straightening a crooked nose
Straightening a crooked nose includes repositioning the septum and the nasal bones. Once the septum is centered, any deviation of the nasal bones needs to be corrected.
Straightening a deviated Septum
The nasal bones are commonly shifted with trauma. If not treated at the time of the initial nasal fracture, the bones will heal in a crooked position. The healing process takes about 6 weeks. A procedure involving straightening a deviated septum involves cutting a bone with a fine medical-grade chisel and restructuring crooked cartilage.
