A Procedure for Symmetry and Balance in the New York Area
People often place a high value on a slender, attractive, and well-formed nose. Being the anchor feature of the human face, it’s one of the first things we notice when we meet someone. If a person’s nose is bent or crooked, that can leave a lasting negative impression, which is a prime reason men and women seek crooked nose surgery at the New York area’s Williams Center for Plastic Surgery.
Not everyone is born with excellent nasal form and symmetry. Some people have congenital nasal deficits and irregularities that can make the nose appear crooked and out of balance with the rest of the face. Others notice that they have developed a crooked nose as a direct result of an injury or trauma. In some cases, the trauma produced a nasal obstruction causing an abnormal breathing pattern. Septorhinoplasty is the procedure used to correct many nasal irregularities, including a bent or crooked nose. Surgery is a common choice, though nonsurgical options are also available.
You can be confident you'll be in good hands with double-board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Edwin Williams:

The Crooked Nose Fix Is In
Noses that are congenitally crooked or bent, or have been damaged by a hard blow, require a skilled surgeon to repair the defect or damage. In the absence of a nasal bone fracture, septorhinoplasty can restore the nose to its normal shape, or improve the shape of a congenitally irregular (crooked) nose. Surgery involves making the necessary repairs through the use of harvested cartilage grafts or spreader grafts in order to rebuild the nose to a more midline position.
In cases involving major nasal deformities, from birth or trauma, crooked nose surgery is perhaps the best method to correct the problem.
Do You Prefer a Non-Surgical Method to Crooked Nose Surgery?
In minor cases of nasal twisting, whether congenital or traumatic in nature, the surgeon may recommend a non-surgical fix using an injectable filler such as Silikon-1000 to achieve results.
Fixing a Crooked Nose: Surgery vs. Fillers
Injectable fillers are used to correct minor deformities, provided there is no serious nasal obstruction, nasal bone fracture, or a significantly crooked nose. Surgery is recommended for more involved cases. As long as the nasal bones are intact and undamaged—and straight—the surgeon will most likely recommend the harvesting of septal cartilage and spreader graft placement as the most common and effective ways to straighten the midsection of the nose.
It basically comes down to the nature and degree of the nasal irregularity to determine the right course of action, whether it’s corrective surgery or an alternative, non-invasive method. Choosing the best surgeon—one who is board certified and has many years of experience performing a variety of rhinoplasty procedures—is a key to getting the results you want from crooked nose surgery or any treatment or procedure.
