The nasal septum is the wall that divides the inside of the nose into a left airway and a right airway.  When the septum doesn't sit in the middle, it can obstruct airflow through the nose instead of guiding the airflow.  We then call it a "deviated septum," and that deviated or crooked septum can be straightened during a rhinoplasty.

Most commonly, the deviation of the septum cannot be seen from the outside of the nose.  The deviation that obstructs the airflow is deeper inside the nose, where you can't see it.  This patient's septum was so bad that you could see it before surgery.

Questioner: My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Drains after facelift
Deb,

This is a question that cosmetic surgeons discuss regularly and you will find many different opinions. Most feel drains do help minimize seromas (fluid collections under the skin) and improve the recovery process. Some surgeons use fibrin sealants which also work well. Others just depend on dressings and pressure.  In general, however, if your surgeon is experienced with facelifts and getting excellent results, then whether or not they use drains should not be an issue.

Best of luck with your procedure-
