Regardless of what breaks it's the deformity that is left when the swelling goes down that matters. Broken noses can be reset better on day 5 without the swelling you know where the pieces belong. If you cannot breathe even on one side get get checked now. ...Read more

Supposing you keep pushing on the tip of your nose really hard. Will the cartilage break and will the tip be lifted a little?

Supposing you keep pushing on the tip of your nose really hard. Will the cartilage break and will the tip be lifted a little?

NO - STOP!: If you are thinking of trying do-it-yourself Plastic Surgery on your nose, I strongly advise against it!

Plastic Surgeons spend close to 20 years in college, medical school and residency training - don't ruin your face and spend $$ to fix it. ...Read more
