Background: Surgeons frequently perform rhinoplasty on individuals who have facial asymmetry. Patients' discontent following rhinoplasty has been linked to facial asymmetry. On the other hand, correction of a deviated nose is a tough procedure, and it is not the same as septal deviation correction. Surgeons, who often perform rhinoplasty for deviated nose in people with asymmetrical faces, focus primarily on correcting nasal defects and overlook such facial asymmetry.
Aim: We aimed to summarize and review the prevalence of facial asymmetry in patients subjected for rhinoplasty for deviated nose correction.
Methods: A systematic search was conducted covering PubMed, Scopus, ISI, and Google Scholar using related key words and MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) terms from 2000 until November 2021 for English published articles.
Results: The majority of subjects had more facial asymmetry such as chin deviation, nasal deviation, and face breadth. Facial asymmetry is typically found in patients undergoing rhinoplasty for a deviated nose, and its presence frequently results in the failure to achieve a straight-looking nose.
Conclusion: Patients considering rhinoplasty frequently have facial asymmetries, and careful attention should be devoted to these elements in both surgical planning and patient counseling. In order to create facial harmony and apparent symmetry after rhinoplasty, it is critical to center the nose on the midglabellar to mid–bow Cupid's line.
