Nasal deformities are conditions when the nose shape is abnormal, causing respiratory problems and aesthetic imperfections. Therefore, ENT doctors are considering medical treatment (to relieve the symptoms) and surgery. Depending on the disorder, rhinoplasty or septoplasty eliminates aesthetic and breathing issues.

A nasal deformity is any atypical change in the standard nose's internal structure or appearance. Most often, such conditions are obtained as a result of an accident, a fall or a fight, or injuries in sports (for example, boxing).

Otorhinolaryngologists distinguish several types of nasal deformities:

  • Nasal hump;
  • Excessive length of the nose;
  • Hanging or large tip of the nose;
  • Too large or asymmetrical nostrils;
  • Thick or uneven bridge of the nose;
  • Deviated nasal septum (the septum separating the nostrils is curved to the side);
  • A saddle, also known as a "boxer's" nose, is a retraction of the back of the nose.

ENT doctors salsify the causes of nasal deformities, congenital and acquired.

Symptoms of disorders depend on the type of nose deformations. Frequent signs are:

  • Snoring;
  • Nosebleeds;
  • Facial and nasal pain;
  • Blockage of one or both nostrils;
  • Sleep apnea (periods of interrupted breathing).

Treatment of nasal deformity involves medication therapy, namely nasal sprays with hormones, decongestants, antihistamines, and painkillers.

Surgery is usually the only effective treatment for nasal deformations and the accompanying signs. Nose plastic surgery allows patients to achieve the correct nose proportion and eliminate congenital or acquired defects. Popular operations are:

  • Rhinoplasty - nose reshaping;
  • Septoplasty - reposition a deviated septum.
  • Rhinoseptoplasty - a combined procedure to correct the deviated septum and the nose deformity.
