Can A Paranasal Implant Help Fix A Crooked Nose?

Q: Dr. Eppley, My nose on the right sight is tilted and sits further into my right cheek than my left cheek. I thought it was my nose itself that was crooked but I noticed it’s not the nose itself, it’s my cheek bone and premaxillary bone. It is more recessed on on the right right which pulls the right side of my nose over and also pulls the right side of my lips up.

I was wondering if a paranasal/ midface implant could help this?

A: I think some form of a midface implant on the right be helpful for sure and will do about as much correction as possible. A 3D CT scan will provide the definitive proof of the extent of the midface asymmetry as well as serve as the platform for the implant design.
