Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Results of Rhinoplasty for Curved Nose?
I got punched on the side of the nose and from that, the nasal bone was obviously decompressed on one side. It also made an obvious curve or slat. The surgeon performed a closed reduction Rhinoplasty. With surgery, I had packing in the injured side and a splint on top. I just got the splint removed, but the curve still looks pretty apparent to me. Is it too soon to freak out? Will the straightening settle in? Was there something else that the surgeon should have done in order to straighten the curve other than closed reduction?
