I’m well, thank you. I would be glad to look at your picture and give you some ideas as to what may be needed and the likely cost. However, let me tell you a bit about “C-shaped” or “crooked” noses. The first step is always the proper diagnosis of the aesthetic problem and then the cause. The fact is that c-shaped or crooked noses can appear that way due to asymmetry in the nasal bones, asymmetry in the middle-vault cartilages (upper lateral cartilages), the dorsal septum, or even asymmetries in the lower lateral cartilages (nasal tip). There can also be a combination of issues involved. Therefore, the proper surgical planning will vary with the problem at hand and hence the length of surgery and cost will vary as well. Although a picture is important, looking inside the nose to evaluate the role of the septum is also crucial as the inside and outside of the nose are connected and the correction of one will affect the other.
