Some people are born with a deviated septum. Other people develop a deviated septum after injury or trauma to the nose:
Those who have an asymmetric face due to a deviated nose
Those whose nose is not seriously deviated, but suffering from nasal obstruction or other nose diseases
Those who have deviated nostrils
Those whose nose is deviated after rhinoplasty
In order to relieve the symptoms of nasal septum deviation such as nasal obstruction, rhinitis, and headaches, JW Hospital provides a proper surgical procedure, considering the patient’s conditions. We create a beautiful nose shape and improve the functions of the nose at the same time.
The camouflage method is a simple procedure that corrects a slightly deviated nose through cartilage graft or dermis graft. Most cases are corrected with simple procedures.
Corrective rhinoplasty is recommended to those who have a seriously deviated nose whose parts are deviated at the same time.
In this case, deviated nose correction is not limited to nasal septum correction.
For corrective rhinoplasty for a deviated nose, several diagnostic and corrective procedures should be performed at the same time.
2.1 Deviated Nose Correction (Nasal Osteotomy)
Nasal Osteotomy is a surgical procedure that corrects the location of the nasal bones by vertically cutting both sides and central part of the nose. It is considered as one of the most basic procedures.
2.2 Deviated Nasal Cartilage (upper lateral cartilage) correction (Septum cartilage wedge graft)
There are various surgical procedure methods to correct the deviated cartilages from the middle to the tip of the nose.
2.3 Alar Cartilage or Nasal Bridge Correction
In case of a deviated nose tip or nasal bridge, its cartilages, alar cartilages or septal nasal cartilages, should be corrected
2.4 Septal nasal cartilage correction (SMR or Septoplasty)
The nasal septum, consisting of bones and cartilages, refers to a structure dividing the two nostrils. It can be considered as a columella supporting the nasal bridge. Nasal septum deviation is a physical disorder of the nose, involving a displacement of the nasal septum. In other words, it refers to a deviated septum. When correcting a deviated nose, it should be checked if it is accompanied by nasal septum deviation. If so, it should be corrected as well.
2.5 Enlarged inferior turbinate
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 deviated nose correction. This procedure can relieve such symptom by widening the inner space of the nose.
2.6 Correction of nasal valve insufficiency (internal valve, external valve)
The perfect results: Before and After Photos
When one wishes to correct their nose line, one considers rhinoplasty to achieve a smooth and beautiful nose contour. However, for a more perfect nose formation, you need to improve not only the nose shown on the outside, but also the functions of the inside of the nose so that a perfect nose is possible.
Unlike over hospitals, JW Hospital focuses to improve everything all at once: to improve, correct, and beautify, for the most perfect, beautiful nose.
