- A deviated nose is corrected by straight realignment and long-term maintenance of the bony and cartilaginous structure. Traditional rhinoplasty usually involves complete separation of both upper lateral cartilages from the septum and bilateral bony mobilisation after osteotomy. In the Asian deviated nose with no hump, these procedures are intrinsically destabilising and may weaken the supporting bony and cartilaginous structure. To avoid these problems, I performed unilateral bony mobilisation with anterior wedge resection and suture fixation of the dorsal septum to the nasal bone without separation of the upper lateral cartilage. This manoeuvre is simple and reproducible and produces satisfactory straightening and maintenance of the nasal dorsum while maximally preserving the structural support. Here, I describe the surgical techniques including the choice of the site of unilateral osteotomy and wedge resection, a new classification of bony deviation, two surgical modifications applied to different types of deviation and rationale of dorsal septal suture fixation. Also, clinical cases of nasal deviation are presented. © 2006 The British Association of Plastic Surgeons.
