A: Septal deflection with asymmetry can be difficult but amenable to improvement

Thank you for the photo and question.  Your photo shows a substantial deflection of the septum leading to the severe nasal asymmetry and may be the cause of your symptoms.  A more detailed review of your history and examination is necessary before one can conclude whether this has arisen from previous trauma.  Most patients with asymmetries presenting in my practice are developmental and not the result of an extrinsic event.  

Nonsurgical injectables have no role for this type of nasal anomaly.  Surgical straightening of a severe septal deflection is a technical challenge with full correction often not possible. Nevertheless vast improvement can be anticipated with a good surgical plan and meticulous technique.  I recommend you seek out a reputable nasal surgeon in your community to review you options. 

Reviving that long lost youthful appearance

Plastic surgery has become an increasing trend among baby boomers as they prepare to enjoy retirement. People are living longer lives and women are deciding that they might as well look good in their old age. They are becoming tired of dealing with wrinkles and dropping skin, and the discomfort of sagging breasts. Some of the most common procedures done by older patients are breast augmentation and face lifts. Many grandmothers want to look good for their grandchildren and not give off an image of an old granny in a rocking chair.

Older patients are also opting for plastic surgery to be able to keep working without being discriminated by their age. People are not only living longer lives but healthier lives as well. Many baby boomers are in good health which qualifies them for surgery. Being healthy also means they don’t have to retire and can keep working. Image is everything in today’s society, from creating a brand image to an individual’s own image. It is a common fact that people feel great when they look great. As people age, it becomes depressing to see wrinkles appear and youth disappearing from the body. The desire to look good when another stage of life is starting is great incentive to have a breast augmentation or a face lift. This is especially motivating for older women who are thinking of dating again or pleasing their husbands.

Plastic surgery has become more accepted and many women have already gone under the knife. This makes it easier for older woman to not be criticized when they decide to do the same thing. If a younger woman can have the perfect body then an older woman can definitely have a youthful body. The thought of older people trying to make their bodies look youthful can be a bit unnerving but just because they are older doesn’t necessarily mean that their life has become dry and boring. They have not turned to mush. Older people still have jobs, a family, a social life and even a sex life. Why not have a nice body too?
