Resetting a broken nose. Surgeon manipulating a teenage boy's broken nose, which had healed out of alignment. This is an old rugby injury. If bones are not realigned at the time of breaking, they can heal out of alignment. Surgical breaking and resetting of a misaligned nose is usually done to resolve any breathing difficulties or cosmetic issues caused by the misalignment.
