ok
User :   and he made a work with his hands
User :   to realign the nose

Ok
User :   but I've the fixation that there is still a very little gibbosity near the nose tip
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   we could talk about few millimeter
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   so I'd like going again to my plastic surgeon asking him what he thinks about and if he maybe could do again a little work with his hands;but I fear that maybe it's necessary making again surgery
Doctor :  
I will help you in making a decision.
User :   so I'd like asking You if a very little gibbosity could be adjusted just with hands in studio or not
Doctor :  
The surgeries on the nose is mainly done for cosmetic purpose.
User :   a frind of mine once told me that nosal bones are really soft
User :   nasal
Doctor :  
Yes thats right
Doctor :  
They are cartilages
Doctor :  
and are soft in nature.
User :   and that once she took of a little gibbosity just      
smoothing for months with the pressure of fingers
User :   could this be true?
Doctor :  
cartilages cannot be molded with hands.
User :   oh...
Doctor :  
You need surgeries to correct any defect.
User :   I remember that my surgeon told me that the nose was been a little bit moved from its axis
User :   and with pressure of his hands he put the nose again in the center perfectly
Doctor :   you have a deviated nasal septum.
Doctor :  
They have to be corrected if you face
Doctor :  
any symptoms.
Doctor :  
Otherwise its only for cosmetic purpose.
User :   the sept is right; I mean after I went to bang towards the roll-up shutter
Doctor :  
Yes.
Doctor :  
Minor deviation can be considered normal.
User :   the nose was a little bit moved towards left side, and the surgeon put it again perfectly straight
User :   but the forntal section, sorry I don't know the correct word
User :   frontal section
Doctor :  
its called anterior section.
User :   was a little bit with gibbosity, due to the strike
User :   so right, anterior section
User :   if I'd send You some pictures , anterior section and profiles and      
three quarters shots, could You give me advices about what would be better to do?
Doctor :   Yes.
User :   I'm a little bit fixed about perfect things and this thing was really stressing for me
Doctor :   Most of the time its only cosmetic purpose.
User :   anyway I should do surgery again?
Doctor :  
If you are worried cosmetically than you can go ahead with the surgery,
User :   that's right
Doctor :  
Surgery that is performed is a minor one.
User :   really?
User :   is it possible doing it even in studio?
Doctor :   may i know your age?
User :   32
User :   I can still do it?
Doctor :  
Do you have any diabetes, hypertension?
User :   no, I'm in perfect health, thanks God and finger crossed
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
You can go ahead of the surgery.
User :   but I'd like having this retouch since after this I'd like having child
Doctor :  
It should not be any problem.
Doctor :  
But remember its only for cosmetic purpose.
