My Nose is Crooked After Flying, What Should I Do?

I had a nose surgery 2 years ago and it turned out well. 1month ago on a airplane, it started hurting alot. So sometime after i landed, i saw myself in the mirror and my nose was crooked. I dont know how and why :/ it looks really bad and im very depressed because my nose was finally fixed and now its crooked again, should i get a 2nd nosejob (because it bugs me ALOT) and how much do i have to pay for it?

Based upon your description alone it is very difficult to give advice, but I would follow with your surgeon for an exam.

Nose Crooked After Flying

Flying does put some strain on noses and can lead to swelling around the nose.  There are anecedotal reports of some flying causing septal perforation, bleeding, sinus infections, nasal infections.  I would seek out an examination from your primary surgeon to see how both the inside and outside of your nose look to better understand what is going on with your nose.
