Why My Nose Looks Better After I Got Hit in the Face?

I used to have a bump on my nose and I was thinking of having plastic surgery, but something happened, I got punched in the face really hard and I don't know if they broke my nose but I know that the bump has gone, it looks much better and I would like it to stay this way. If I keep massaging it will it stay like this? I don't want the bump to come back again it looks better now.

Dear larosa,

  • If it looks better, then just wait it out
  • Sometimes the swelling hides deformities, sometimes the trauma fixes the bump
  • After all, surgery is just controlled trauma
