The improvement that can be achieved in your situation can best be determined with an in-office consultation with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Rhinoplasty is a great option for the right patient
Based on your description, you are likely a candidate for rhinoplasty. A thorough consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is, of course, needed to truly answer this question. Your injury may be related to the findings you describe; facial growth is also likely an issue.
A detailed analysis of your nose, inside and out, can determine what surgical options may be best for you.
Is rhinoplasty an option
The short answer is yes. The specific answer depends on several variables and can't possibly be asked without seeing photos at a minimum and more importantly an in person consultation. Look for a board-certified plastic surgeon
No matter how severely deranged your nasal shape may be, rhinoplasty is always an option where improvement can be obtained. The question is how much improvement and whether it would meet your expectations and make the surgery worthwhile. Computer imaging would help answer that question for you.
Rhinoplasty on difficult nose
Those of us who specialize in nose surgery deal with noses that are more challenging frequently. There is no nose that is hard to fix and as long the patient has realistic expectation there will be a happy ending.
A rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish narrowing and straightening the crooked nose, shaving down the dorsal bump, and adjusting the nostrils. For many examples, please see the video and the link below
You would have to be seen in person to determine what can be done for you. Best of luck in your pursuit!
As you age,
slight changes to the facial structure (including the nose) can occur. If you
are unhappy with the overall structure of your nose, I would recommended
scheduling an in-person consultation with a highly qualified, board certified
plastic surgeon to help assess your concerns. We perform many rhinoplasty
procedures to patients who, like you, have similar concerns, and who have
noticed a significant improvement after the procedure has been done.
Softball Induced Delayed Nasal Damage
Thanks for your question! The face as well as the nose does undergo slight changes with aging that can make some deformities more noticeable with time. Do not be scared that so much is wrong that a rhinoplasty is not an option. Usually any deformity you notice can be corrected by an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. Good Luck!!!
