Any abnormal variation to the healthy appearance and function of the nose may be considered an acquired nasal deformity. Symptoms of a nasal deformity depends on the nature of the deformity itself. Typically they will cause nasal obstruction, trouble breathing, and congestion.
An acquired deformity is most likely the result of facial trauma. An injury to the nose or surrounding areas, such as from a sports injury or a fall, can lead to improper nasal function. Correcting the deformity or damage as soon as possible ensures the nasal obstruction does not lead to worsening symptoms.
