Suggest treatment for straightening nose other than rhinoplasty

My nose in bended at one part. I try to forcefully make it straight as advised by my friends but it never gave me straight nose. I think it became some what 2 years back. I am 17 years. Should I do rhinoplasty or there is any other alternative like ayurvedic, yoga etc.

Hi,

As you may be knowing, the cause of the bent nose can be one of the following:
- History of accident and trauma over nose wherein the nose gets bent or crooked or so can not be treated by any medicines or any Pathy.
- Deviated nasal septum. Nose goes as the septum foes.
- Any mass inside the nose like polyp or so.


Hence, I would advise you the following:
* First of all do not try any medicines as no medicines work in such conditions.
* Light massage daily to straighten the nose may help as you are 17 years old but no guarantees.
* Consult an ENT surgeon or plastic surgeon experienced in rhinoplasty surgery and follow his advise about the procedure, the timing like now or after some years. He will guide for the CT scan study to plan the type of surgery that will help to correct the nose well at an appropriate time.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.



Regards,

Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
