In brief: Not usually

A well-done septoplasty operation will not usually change the appearance of the nose.
Rarely, there could be some collapse of the nose if there was damage or loss of cartilage.

In brief: Generally No

Septoplasty, surgery for a deviated septum, modifies bone and cartilage inside the nose to improve nasal airflow.
The nasal septum is the foundation of the nose and also contributes to its appearance. Septoplasty is often combined with rhinoplasty to both improve the inside and outside of the nose.
