Abstract

The key to the correction of severely deviated noses is straightening the nasal septum. An emphasis is placed on conservative management of the external nasal framework while being prepared to perform extensive surgery on the deviated septum. If the septum can be modified and repositioned in the midline without losing support to the nose, consistently good functional and aesthetic results are obtained. Several techniques that we have found to be of value in achieving this goal have been discussed and illustrated and three representative cases have been presented.
