Caudal Septal Deviation
Among the deviations of the nasal septum, the caudal or anterior nasal septum deviation, which is the closest to the nostrils, although it is not the most common type, but it may cause both cosmetic and functional problems at the nose tip. While the frequency of caudal septum was found to be 5% in a study by Dr.Guyuron et al. A study of Sedwick et al. Found that 8,7% of 2,043 patients had a caudal septum deviation (sources >> A pratical classification of septonasal deviation and an effective guide to septal surgery / Caudal septoplasty for treatment of septal deviation: aesthetic and functional correction of the nasal base). In addition to important functional problems, deviations of the anterior septum cause cosmetic problems. The first of these aesthetic problems is the alteration of the relationship between kolumella and the nostrils. In other words, this part of the septum, which should normally be located in the middle line behind the arms, is pushed out of the nasal cavity in the right or left side and the nasal tip is pushed in the opposite direction.

Open technique tip plasty / Open technique septoplasty / Open technique caudal septoplasty In patients with advanced caudal septum deviation and a clear nose tip asymmetry, open technique nose tip plasty operation is appropriate. The aim of this operation is to correct both the airway narrowing caudal septum region and the removal of the asinmtrin at the tip of the nose. During the procedure, a new cartilage graft is placed in place of the resected caudal septum and the loss of support at the nose tip is prevented.
Similarly, open technique septoplasty can also be performed for the treatment of caudal septal deviation. Caudal septoplasty can be performed with open technique or closed technique. In general, I prefer an open technique that provides anatomic imperfection to perfection.
