Rhinoplasty is the most effective way to fix a crooked nose. Sometimes it’s hard to make it 100% straight because nobody’s nose is totally straight, but we can make a crooked nose a lot straighter. In fact, a crooked nose is one of the most common reasons people want a rhinoplasty, and that’s one of the most common things we do. Close Up of Dr. Sturm Sitting in the Lobby

Can you fix a crooked nose with closed rhinoplasty? 

A crooked nose can be fixed with either a closed or open rhinoplasty. With closed rhinoplasty, you don’t have the little incision under your tip in the columella and there is slightly less swelling. We’re able to control the top of the nose where the nasal bones are, the middle of the nose, and the tip as well.

Can you fix a crooked nose with open rhinoplasty? 

A crooked nose can be fixed with an open rhinoplasty, but there’ll be a tiny incision under the tip in the columella. However, we have access to the entire nose all the way up in between your eyes which allows me to move the nasal bones and the cartilage with easy access to the tip to make the nose as straight as possible. I actually prefer the open rhinoplasty approach to fix a crooked nose because, for the best result, we need to move all of those cartilages in the midline.
