Nose problems

You would think my face is melting or something. It seems as though the nose has gotten worse. It may not be as bad as Cameron here, but it has definitely moved a lot since high school. While I was at home on Mothers Day, my mom showed me a picture from my senior year and my nose was pretty much in the center and wider. Now, not so much. I guess since my doctor pointed it out to me, I think about it a lot more. It has become much more difficult to breath through it over the years and the tip is really leaning to the left. Have any of you had or know someone who has had surgery to correct a deviated septum? My surgeon thinks that my jaw surgery could help open up my nostrils a bit since they are no bigger than slits. I emailed a plastic surgeon that I went to a couple of years ago after a little accident where I had split my chin. He also operates out of the same hospital that my oral surgeon does. I'm going to see what he thinks. Man, I really could have a new face after all this is said and done. Scary!

My husband had surgery for a deviated septum about four years ago. His nose was crooked at the end too, still is but not really noticeable. I remember it being a day surgery but thinking it should have been an overnight cause the poor guy was in a lot of pain and just really out of it. He says the surgery was worth it though. I remember he was back at work in a week or so because he does carpentry work they made him stay out longer. All in all he said the pain wasn't too bad. He said the first couple of days were the worst.

I'll be looking down this road too once my jaw is fixed up. Let's hear it for total face rearrangement. I could get my ears pinned back too while I'm at it....hmmm...

All the problems of the nose can be corrected through surgical methods.There is a need that you get to a good treatment scheme with an expert if you want a remedy.
