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: I'm Looking into the Possibility of Plastic Surgery. Any Advice Based on my Picture?
I'm looking for any recommendations. I've always been self-concious about my looks, specifically about my nose and lower jaw/chin. I'm looking for outside opinions as what would help me look more attractive/symmetrical and rough estimates. I'm currently located in Central PA. Thanks in advance!

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Bring the nose closer to the face, take down the hump, strengthen the chin, and ...
Hi, I'll tell you what most of my patients would request with a nose and chin like yours. See my "Web reference" link for a morph of your profile. I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, and brought your chin out farther forward. Those movements tend to put the profile into what most people feel is better balance. You might feel so, too. Then, I took down the hump along the bridge of your nose. I also raised the tip just a tiny amount.

Bringing the nose tip closer to the face, what we call "de-projecting" the nose, involves complicated work on the tip cartilages. You must be sure you see before and after photos of your surgeon's other patients, showing that he was able to achieve for them what you want for yourself. That's the best way to do research when deciding on a surgeon.
