I have a very crooked nose that I would like to have fixed. I’ve heard that it can be made straighter but that correcting a crooked appearance is very difficult and that I cannot expect it to be perfectly straight. Why is this?
Crooked noses are more of a challenge to correct. There are a number of reasons for this ranging from cartilage memory to previous trauma. Special maneuvers are needed to help maintain the correction. Despite this some deviation may recur or persist. This can happen because of inherent asymmetry to the face or cartilage memory.
