Whether we are born with a crooked nose, or it is a resultant of an injury – we are always on the lookout to learn how to fix a crooked nose.
While exercises don’t usually work, there are other surgical and non-surgical ways to go about it.
How to Fix a Crooked Nose with Septoplasty
- When resorting to any surgical means to fix a crooked nose; first and foremost, make an appointment with the doctor. If the doctor diagnosis the crooked nose as a result of a deviated septum – you qualify for a septoplasty.
- Ask the doctor for a recommendation for the best surgeon for the task. Another way can be to ask relatives or friends for a suggestion for the best surgeon in town.
- Next, to learn how to fix a crooked nose, make an appointment with the surgeon. If the deviated septum is causing difficulty breathing, make the appointment as soon as possible to avoid any unpredicted difficulties.
- When meeting the surgeon, discuss your entire medical history with them. If you have previous experiences of a nose-job, plastic surgeries, or any other surgery – let them know. Also tell the surgeon why you are getting the surgery done. This can provide a form of second opinion to you; whether the surgery is absolutely necessary or can be avoided.
- Next, ask the doctor about the risks involved in the surgery. A septoplasty can have aftereffects like nosebleeds or infection. Thus, it is essential that you know what you are getting into before you are en route for surgery.
- The next step; get the surgery done. You will be put under anesthesia. Whether it is general or other anesthesia depends upon the anesthetist’s analysis of the case and your medical history. The surgeon will make a cut in the nasal cavity. Next, the mucosal lining will be carefully separated. First, the surgeon lifts the nasal mucosal lining away from the septum. Then, he also lifts the other mucosal lining away from the septum. He then removes the deviated septum, that had been the cause of the crookedness. The nasal mucosal lining is returned to its place and carefully sutured together, with mostly dissolvable sutures.
- The septoplasty is done. The last step involves a little after-surgery care. Fillers or packing may be added as support to the septum that has just been adjusted and corrected. These can also be in the form of splints. However, they won’t be applicable for each case.
- Before leaving the hospital, ask the nurse for tips on maintaining the nose for the next few weeks of recovery. Do not take a bath for the next 24 hours. Clean the nose with Q-tips of need be. You may see some swelling, however, that is normal post-surgery.

How to Fix a Crooked Nose with Makeup

- Take the darker shade of foundation and draw straight lines with it on the crooked side of the nose.
- Grab the lighter shade of foundation. Make downward lines on the opposite side of the nose i.e. the one without the evident bend.
