About six years ago, I noticed a major change in my nose. It's slanted! I had always had a too-big-for-my-face kind of nose, but I honestly had no idea just how awful my nose had grown. After my pregnancy my whole body and face changed. I was hurt on the playground at age five (think full body tackle) and my nose was badly scraped as a result of my hitting the ground face first. What kind of work do I need? How intensive, how long is down-time? Any information is appreciated. Thanks!
