Question: If you have a deviated septum, will fixing it also improve a crooked appearance?
Answer: The nose has a bone in the middle which separates the two parts of the nose on the inside called the nasal septum. This structure is composed not just of bone but also of cartilage. The external appearance of the nose that gives it its shape is related to the cartilages overlying the nose. In general, changing the shape of the deviated septum will only improve the breathing but will not fix a crooked nose. However, when fixing a crooked nose, it is very important to also fix the deviated nasal septum to bring the nose straight.
