Will a septoplasty fix my crooked nose?

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients who present with a crooked nose may also have a deviated septum.  One question many patients have is whether septoplasty for a deviated septum will correct their crooked nose.  The simple answer here is no.  A septoplasty will not straighten a crooked nose just as straightening a crooked nose will not fix a deviated septum.  However, frequently, septoplasty is necessary in order to correct a crooked nose.  Septoplasty can be covered by insurance but correcting a chronically crooked nose is considered cosmetic rhinoplasty and not covered by insurance.
