What Are Nose Deformities And Solution For It

Causes of nose deformities

Nose deformities caused by birth defects

Nose deformities are one of the most common birth defects, affecting around one in every 200 babies. Most nose deformities are minor and can be easily corrected with surgery. However, some nose deformities can cause serious health problems, such as difficulty breathing. There are many different types of nose deformities, ranging from a small bump on the nose to a complete absence of the nose. The most common type of nose deformity is a cleft lip, which is a split in the upper lip that can also affect the nose. Cleft lip and cleft palate are the most common type of birth defect, affecting around one in every 700 babies. Other types of nose deformities include: • A deviated septum, which is a condition where the bone and cartilage that separate the nostrils is not in the middle. This can cause difficulty breathing. A blockage of the nasal passages, which can also cause difficulty breathing. Choanal atresia, which is a condition where the nasal passages are blocked. This can be life-threatening if not treated immediately after birth. If your child has a nose deformity, it is important to talk to your doctor about treatment options. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to correct the deformity.
