Surgery on a nose after an illness? I have a scar, and my nose is out of shape.

I had meningitis when I was 13 and I am now 22. Due to this I had many complications and it has effected me in many ways, one of the ways it has effected me is my nose. I have a scar on my nose and its a little out of shape eventhough I had surgery on it before to fix it a little but nothing major happend. Is there any way that I can have surgery on my nose that gets rid of the scar on my nose and its in a normal shape so I dont have to wake up ever morning to do my make up on my nose.

  Pictures would be helpful to determine what may be offered.

Without being seen in person, it is impossible to say what could be done for your nasal shape or the scar on your nose. Best of luck.
