Crooked Nose / Broken Nose
A crooked nose is one that doesn’t follow a straight line down the centre of your face. A broken nose, also known as a nasal fracture, is where you have broken or cracked the bone.
A crooked nose is one that doesn’t follow a straight line down the centre of your face. Crooked noses can come in different shapes and sizes and can cause a lot of people to feel insecure about the way they look.
There are two types of crooked noses. One type is an issue within the bones, cartilage and tissue that make up the structure of the nose and the second is caused by a deviated septum. Some causes are:
- Childhood trauma
- Birth defect
A broken nose, also known as a nasal fracture, is where you have broken or cracked the bone.
- Sporting injury
- Physical fights
- Car accident
Rhinoplasty is a procedure to alter the appearance of the nose. It can make the nose larger or smaller and also correct deformities as well as alleviate impairments to breathing.
We also offer a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty treatment to treat a crooked or a broken nose.
What happens before this treatment?
You will have a consultation with Professor Sama where he will outline the best options to achieve your desired objectives. Also he will be able to take photographs and through using a process called morphing we will be able to show you what your nose would be expected to look like after the intended procedure.

Is a crooked nose genetic?
It can be but most of the time a crooked nose occurs from a childhood trauma.
Is it bad to have a crooked nose?
Absolutely not, crooked noses are common.
Why might I want to get Rhinoplasty Surgery?
The most common uses for Rhinoplasty are to:
- Straighten a hump that can appear at the bridge of the nose
- Change the width of the nose or nostrils
- Reshape the tip of the nose – often to make it slimmer
- Impairment of breathing through the nasal airways or a change in shape following fracture
How long does it take to heal from Rhinoplasty?
It will take approximately 1-2 weeks for bruising to settle and 6 weeks for bones to heal in the nose. Slight swelling can thus be present for a number of months.
Does a broken nose heal on its own?
Most of the time they do heal, however in some cases they can take longer. This is when people normally go down the rhinoplasty route.
After breaking your nose does it look any different?
Your nose can look different after having a break. You may have difficulty breathing but your nose may also have a bump or look crooked after.
Does touching the nose often increase the size?
Squeezing or punching the nose does not make it grow bigger.
Does having a nose job last forever?
Rhinoplasty has a permanent effect on your nose, unless your nose suffers from any further trauma due to an accident. Subtle changes may also occur due to the ageing process.
Is the crooked nose surgery painful?
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anaesthetic so you are not awake during the procedure. For Rhinophyma treatment using lasers, we will numb the area using a medical grade local anaesthetic so you do not feel any pain.
How do I decide whether I should have a surgical or non-surgical Rhinoplasty?
We will offer you the best option (s) at your first consultation with our doctor.
