Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You said that your nose is growing towards the left side. For your information nose does not grow after the age of 16 years. If you are right then you need to show your nose to a plastic surgeon to check whether there is any pathology or not which is unlikely.

Nose can be deviated to the right or left side and it can be corrected by rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty corrects your dorsum and deviation of nose. You have to discuss with your plastic surgeon. After surgery there will be swelling which will settle in few weeks.

I hope this helps.
