What Is Crooked Nose Surgery?
Crooked nose surgery is performed to repair structural deformities that are either present at birth or acquired later in life due to traumatic injuries to the nasal bone or cartilage. These deformities are addressed by repositioning the septum, nasal bones,and cartilages through controlled osteotomies and other advanced reconstruction techniques that help create a straighter and more aligned structure.
Repairing a crooked nose typically involves complex reconstructive surgery that deals with both the cosmetic and functional aspects of the nose. When done correctly, patients can expect a well-shaped, visibly straighter nose with significant improvements in breathing and other nasal functions.
Reasons To Undergo Crooked Nose Rhinoplasty
A crooked nose can be hereditary or congenital, but it can also be caused by accidents or sports-related trauma. Regardless of the cause, a crooked nasal structure can lead to an asymmetrical appearance and even breathing problems that usually get worse over time. Undergoing crooked nose surgery helps patients address both the aesthetic and functional concerns that arise from the presence of nasal deformities. Here are some of the issues that can be repaired by this procedure:
- Nasal fracture
- Septal hematoma
- Deviated septum
- Collapsed nose bridge
- Misaligned nasal structure
- Twisted nose
What Are The Benefits Of Crooked Nose Surgery?

Before & After
The first step to delivering the patient’s desired results is a successful initial consultation. During this meeting, Dr. Sedgh will carefully examine the internal and external structures of your nose to pinpoint the underlying issues that are causing the misalignment.
If the crooked nose is not congenital or hereditary, it is imperative for the doctor to learn more about the circumstances that left your nose in its current crooked state. This is pertinent information that can help Dr. Sedgh determine the best surgical plan for your specific needs. Your consultation will involve the following:
- An open interview to discuss your surgical goals
- A complete assessment of your medical history
- A rhinoscopy and other diagnostic tests
- Explanation and discussion of important aspects of the procedure
For added convenience, out-of-town or overseas patients can opt to have their initial consultations with Dr. Sedgh conducted via video conferencing. His office also offers comprehensive medical tourism services for those who will need to travel to undergo the surgery.
Crooked Nose Surgery Recovery
The expected downtime from crooked nose surgery is minimal, and patients are usually allowed to resume their normal activities after a week. However, it is best to wait several weeks before participating in any strenuous activities.
After the surgery, you may notice some nasal congestion, as well as swelling and bruising around the treated area. Dr. Sedgh will prescribe over-the-counter medications and provide detailed post-op instructions to help manage these side effects and facilitate a more comfortable recovery.
Since the postoperative phase is a critical period that will greatly affect the surgery’s final results, Dr. Sedgh always makes it a point to be closely involved in the recovery of his patients. In the interest of promoting a healthy and timely recovery, he provides plenty of guidance and support while diligently monitoring each patient’s progress through regularly scheduled follow-up appointments, beginning on the first day after the surgery up to a year or longer.

When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical. His approach to facial enhancement is to achieve a refreshed, natural look – with transparency, honesty, and the highest level of ethical treatment, from start to finish.
