A misshapen nose refers to an irregular or asymmetrical appearance of the nasal structure, which can result from various factors. This condition can manifest in different ways, including: a crooked bridge, a humped or depressed profile, or an uneven tip.
This condition can significantly impact a person’s self-esteem and confidence. Visible irregularities in nasal structure may lead to self-consciousness and a sense of insecurity about one’s appearance. Individuals may avoid social interactions or feel reluctant to be photographed. Addressing a misshapen nose, whether through surgical or non-surgical interventions, can often lead to a boost in confidence and improved self-image.
The causes of a misshapen nose are unique to the individual. In most cases it’s congenital, meaning it’s present at birth, and genetics have influenced the way the nose is formed. Alternatively, a misshapen nose may be acquired due to trauma, injury, or previous nasal surgeries. A heavy impact to the nose can alter the internal structure, changing the way the bone and cartilage lies. A bump in the nose is typical when the nose is injured or damaged, due to natural repair. The cartilage and / or bone may remain in its malaligned position, and tissues that repair the nasal structure may accumulate to cause an irregularity.
Additionally, natural ageing processes can lead to changes in nasal anatomy, contributing to a misshapen appearance.
Dermal fillers offer a non-surgical option that Bank Medispa recommends to address a misshapen nose. They are injectable substances, commonly hyaluronic acid-based, that are carefully placed beneath the skin’s surface. This procedure is called Non-surgical Rhinoplasty and is a less invasive alternative to a surgical ‘nose job’. When used for nose reshaping, dermal fillers can be strategically placed to add / restore volume and create more harmonious contours. This can help to cleverly disguise any lumps, bumps or irregular lines, and achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing facial profile.
