Center StaffI broke my nose recently, how long should I wait to get a rhinoplasty?

I broke my nose yesterday. Is now a good time for nose job? I went to the doctor and had x-rays done which showed it was fractured. I was referred to an ENT. I have a nose like Barbara Streisand and I have always kind of wanted a nose job. Would now be a good time to get one?

Dr. Azizzadeh’s Expert Answer:
No! You should not get a nose job after breaking your nose. It is a better to have your nose reset by your ENT and let it heal for at least 3 – 6 months. After it has had some time to heal, then you can fix the cosmetic issues.
