The nose is the most prominent feature of the face, making it also one of the features that many people are most unhappy with.

A broken nose is the most common facial fracture, and a very large majority of people in the United States alone have suffered from this injury. Yet, as many people who have been affected by a nasal fracture, over half of them choose not to have any type of repair done.

Getting struck on the nose, whether by a propelling object, another person, a door, or in an accident, is not pleasant.

Surgery to straighten the septum is called septoplasty. Many people have heard of a deviated septum because of the popularity of celebrities blaming this “cause” as the reason for a nose job. While it is hard to know just who in Hollywood is every honest about work they have or haven’t had done, correcting a deviated septum is a relatively easy procedure. continue reading
