Question: I broke my nose when I was a kid and the lump left behind has always been bothersome. Would a nose job be a smart choice in fixing such an old problem?
Answer: Nasal deformities, whether the result of trauma or simply the patient’s own nose, can often be corrected with rhinoplasty (nose job). It is important to be evaluated by an experienced plastic surgeon to determine the exact nature of the deformity and how to correct it. Even old injuries can be corrected, but in the case of complicated nasal trauma, it is essential to have an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon assess the deformity.
