We are often asked this question. Do you have to break my nose during Rhinoplasty surgery? Now we really don’t use the term “break the nose” or is you hear the quote “that the nose is broken”, it’s not like you’ve had an accident and the nose is crushed and then manipulated back together. There are very special instruments that are used to literally separate the bones and then place them in a very specific position. As a matter of fact, we designed an instrument that actually cuts through the bone in the most atraumatic way so that the amount of swelling is dramatically decreased and the exactness of where the cut is made is very specific. So to answer to that question, is very often that the nose bones have to be brought together and they are separated but they are not crushed.
