How does surgery for a deviated septum change my nose appearance?Ear, Nose & Throat Plastic Surgery
Can surgery for my deviated septum change the appearance of my nose? If so, how? I am thinking to have my deviated septum corrected, and I was wondering if the surgeon could improve the appearance of my nose at the same time.
Septoplasty alone to address a deviated nasal septum is not meant to change the shape and appearance of your nose.
A rhinoplasty can also be done at the same time (Septorhinoplasty) to change the shape of the nose.
Septorhinoplasty can be functional or cosmetic, this will depend on the assessment by your surgeon at the time of consultation.
As Dr Tay pointed out , you can get the shape and appearance of your nose operated on at the same time of the septoplasty. That would be considered another surgical procedure.
That would likely involve the insertion of implants and cartilage for the aesthetic shaping of your nose bridge and nose tip and columnella.
So the answer is “yes” to your question.
