Hi there. Hi there. Rhinoplasty is a feasible maneuver after nasal trauma. Most likely, an “open rhinoplasty” (where the soft tissues are gently elevated to allow direct access to the tip cartilages) will be required. These tip cartilages are then sculpted and sutured to refine the nasal tip.
If you like, please follow the link below. The article on Nasal Analysis contains many diagrams that you may find helpful. This may help guide your conversation with your surgeon.
Hope this is helpful. Best wishes.
Since you have had previous trauma to your nose, it is most
likely that you had a fracture and your base is too wide. You will need in-fracturing and refinement of
your tip. The operation would take 2
hours and it would cost $7,000.

Yes it's quite possible to fix your nose. The cost will vary on the geographic location and experience of the surgeon. To fix your nose will probably cost in between 8500 to 15000. If you have insurance they may cover part of the cost if there was a fracture.
Rhinoplasty cost for broken nose
The cost for primary rhinoplasty is located on the link below on our website. To narrow and straighten the previously fractured nasal bones, a combination of both medial and lateral osteotomies will need to be performed. Any hump can also be shaved down at the same time. One or both of the upper lateral cartilages appear to be fractured off the nasal bones and and a spreader graft graft may be needed underneath the upper lateral cartilages to help straighten the nasal cartilage.
Cost of Rhinoplasty
To see exactly what needs to be done to your nose, you would need to provide pictures from different angles and create a list of issues you would like to improve about your nose. Depending upon how many changes you want done and the time to do it, a cost range of $6,000 to $8,000 would be a good estimate.
Based on the photo provided you are an excellent candidate for rhinoplasty procedure, the cost varies surgeon to surgeon you should expect to pay $7500-$10,000. Contact a board certified plastic surgeon in your area that specializes in rhinoplasty. Many surgeons like myself also offer financing through companies like Care Credit.
What are my options for fixing my nose
Yes, although you are in the category of ethnic rhinoplasty which presents a slightly greater challenge--- you appear to be a good candidate for complete rhinoplasty with anticipated significant improvement of the appearance of your nose. Although the injury presents some additional challenge -- in the right experienced hands- this too can be overcome.
What are my options for fixing my nose and how much?
Any number of aspects of the nose can be refined to produce a natural result through a closed rhinoplasty approach.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds
of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the
plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a
sense of who can deliver the results.

You should consult with an experienced, board certified facial plastic surgeon who performs many rhinoplasties and can demonstrate excellent results. You should be able to name 1-3 things that you dislike about your nose, and your surgeon can then make suggestions for improving them.
