I broke and ripped my nose off and couple of years ago. The surgeon at the hospital stitched it back only and they told me after it healed then I can have surgery to fix the nose. I cant breath nose is crooked and I have sinus pain and swelling. I also have skin that grew on the inside of my right nostril. I'm very over whelmed find the right surgeon to make my nose look pretty and not crooked anymore as well as being able to breath right. Please help I live in wallington nj thank you for your advice.

What kind of surgeon do I need to fix my nose after an injury?
I would suggest that have a consultation with a plastic surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience who should be board certified by the American Board of American Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or a facial plastic surgeon (otolaryngologist) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Look for an experienced rhinoplastic surgeon -- either a Plastic Surgeon or an ENT surgeon with cosmetic experience. Feel free to get more than one opinion and then go from there. You obviously need to be seen and examined to determine what is the right procedure for you.
