A septorhinoplasty is plastic surgery procedure used to correct a deviated septum as well as change the external shape and appearance of the nose.  A patient with a crooked nose is the ideal candidate for a septorhinoplasty. 

 During the procedure the septum is straightened by positioning it in the midline, removing any bent or abnormal segments.

 The external appearance of the nose such a bump on the bridge or a large bulbous tip are addressed at the same time.

 Cartilage grafts maybe required during the procedure to strengthen certain segments.  These grafts are usually the patient’s own cartilage taken from their ear or septum.
