I Got Elbowed on my Nose 2 Months After Rhinoplasty?
I was at a concert 2 months post op and I got elbowed in on side of my nose badly. The bone towards the top of my nose hurt and the tip of my nose hurt. My nose was hit on the side and in the front. I had rhinoplasty to remove a small bump on the bridge of my nose, had my bones narrowed and the tip of my nose reduced. I've read that hitting the tip of my nose will cause cartilage to grow and therefore the "tip reduction" will be reversed and also my nose bones will spread. Is that true?
