A deviated nasal septum has two parts;

1) Bony part deviation

2) Soft part deviation

3) Both involved.

An x-ray and an MRI would best assess it.

You may need a cosmetic surgeon / plastic surgeon for repair.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

what if it looks normal and straight in the mirror?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 11 months ago

A cosmetic surgeon can assess the reason that same thing which looks normal in mirror is coming crooked in in pictures and may also suggest if the surgery can be curative.

Also a photographer can tell you that some particular angle can be the best for nose to look normal in the pictures as light and shadows play an enormous role.

It is privilege assisting you.
