When a person’s nose is described as misshapen, it generally doesn’t follow a straight, vertical line down the middle of the face.
As each person has their own unique appearance, so too can the look of a nose that has an irregular form. This condition can be used to refer to a number of characteristics including: appearing crooked or bent, having a visible bump in one or more places (known as a dorsal hump), an indentation close to the tip (which can often make the nose appear to be upturned), a tip that points downwards or a flattened look to the bridge, to name just a few.
Genetics are the main factor in determining the look of the facial features, including the nose and what can sometimes be considered an irregularity which can become more noticeable as a person grows and gets older. For some people who have naturally been gifted a nose that is aesthetically acceptable, injury or trauma can distort the shape and change its look.
When seeking to improve the nose’s appearance by way of a non-surgical rhinoplasty, Dr. Shaan will need to consider the cause of your misshapen nose and whether it’s an issue with the materials that make up the nose’s structure, or because of a deviated septum. Factors such as a broken nose, birth defects, severe infections, surgery and tumours can cause disruptions to how the nose is structured, producing a distinctive C, I or S shape. When the person has a deviated septum, the piece of cartilage that separates the left and right nasal passage is impaired and can partially block one or both sides. This condition may be formed at birth or is likely to occur through injury and may not be suitable for non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Dr. Shaan uses his gifted eye to visualise how applying fillers can create a straight, evenly balanced nose. Through his aesthetic artistry he can camouflage the irregularly shaped bones and even give the illusion that a long nose is shorter.Book a Consultation
