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: What would be involved in Rhinoplasty 2nd revision on nose tip? Do I have Melasma or Freckles on my upper lip/ mouth?
Hello, I had rhinoplasty in August 2013 and a revision in September 2014. My nose is now asymmetrical in the tip and I'm just wanting to know what exactly would be involved in a second revision to have this fixed? Also if anyone could tell me, if I have Melasma or Freckles on my upper lip/around my mouth? Thank-you for your help in advance :)
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Another revision should address more than just the asymmetry of your tip
Hi,
I see the asymmetry of your tip, but the asymmetry is small, and small asymmetries are very difficult to correct. However, usually when there is an asymmetry like that, some of the other views show other problems that can be corrected during a revision operation. Can you post profile and three-quarter views? You might get some useful comments.
