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: Please Could You Tell Me What They Can Do to my Nose to Make It Look Smaller. Would It Look Stupid?
I need it smaller asap :(
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Reduce the hump, and bring the nose back closer to your face
Hi,

From your photo, you seem to be a reasonable candidate for a rhinoplasty. See my "Web reference" link for a morph I made of your nose.

I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, and reduced the hump. I can't really tell from your photos here, but you may also have strong tip cartilages, and the tip could possibly be reduced in width.
