Question

I noticed that my nose curves to the right and makes my facial features asymmetrical. How would I fix that?

Answer

The majority of deviations of the nasal contours are related to the shape of the cartilage framework supporting it, and in particular to the septum.

In fairness, there is no such thing as a truly straight nose, because the facial shape is so asymmetric in everybody that the best we can achieve is the impression of a relatively straight contour, that tries to be in harmony with the facial structures.

The techniques for changing the shape of the septal cartilage include repositioning it on the bone, or reshaping it using sutures.
