What causes a crooked nose and how might I treat it?

People with a crooked nose suffer from a common nasal-facial and nose disproportion called simply called a crooked nose. The crooked nose usually results from hereditary overgrowth of cartilages and bones that pulls the nose to one side. Crooked noses can also occur from traumatic injury during childhood or adolescent development. This condition usually presents an aesthetic displeasing facial-nasal disproportion, as on the front view the mid-line structures appear off centre and can be distracting and displeasing to the patient and others.

Can I treat my crooked nose? And if so, how is that done?

At SpaMedica, patients looking to reshape their crooked nose can be treated with a few different producers by Dr. Stephen Mulholland,a world renowned cosmetic surgeon and owner of SpaMedica. One of the more common procedures for improving the appearance of a crooked nose includes a procedure developed and pioneered by Dr. Stephen Mulholland called injectable rhinoplasty or five minute nose job. During an injection rhinoplasty procedure, a safe injectable dermal filler, such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Teosyal or Voluma can be injected along the bridge of the nose and create the appearance of a straighter, more centred nose and nasal-facial proportion. Alternatively, patients may also undergo cosmetic rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, to attempt to straighten the midline appearance of the nose. During this procedure, which is performed under a general anesthesia at the SpaMedica Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre, the structures leading to a deviation of the nose are corrected and realigned to provide a straighter appearance to the nose on front view. Usually, the straightening of a crooked nose is successful in improving the midline appearance of the nose and overall cosmetic appearance of the face. Dr. Stephen Mulholland uses simulated computer imaging to help patients understand and visualize the results and components of the rhinoplasty procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Mulholland will walk you through a simulation of the procedure and provide a realistic estimate of what the nasal-facial balance or proportion should appear like after the repair of the crooked nose. Following the surgery the patients will wear a cast on the bridge of the nose for one week and should be able to return to work after that.

Dr. Mulholland is one of the most skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeons in Canada and his SpaMedica Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre is one of the most trusted and reputable cosmetic treatment facilities in the country.

If I have my crooked nose reshaped will it recur or come back?

Recurrence of the appearance of the crooked nose can occur occasionally and protection of the nose for six weeks following the procedure is critical. Following injection rhinoplasty the injectable product can lasts up to two years and repeat injections can be performed.
