As far as contact sports go, professional football may be one of the most destructive. National Football League (NFL) players are routinely subjected to a brutal battering when they step on the field, and some injuries can't be healed by a few weeks of bed rest. J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans has garnered a lot of media attention of late for his various scrapes. The defensive-end has taken more than his fair share of hits on the field, and The Associated Press reports that he may soon be recruiting a board-certified plastic surgeon to gauge the damage.
"J.J. Watt's penchant for violent collisions left a deep gash on the bridge of his nose that required six stitches in Week 4. Each time he's played since, the wound has been reopened, resulting in a permanent – and ugly – mark on the Texans star's face," the source states.
Watt told the news source that he is primarily looking into cosmetic surgery at the behest of his mother, who can't stand the sight of the prominent wound. Though Watt has received stitches multiple times after the initial injury, the laceration has consistently reopened during play, making it clear that further medical intervention is necessary.
Most people associate rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, with cosmetic concerns, but plastic surgeons routinely use this technique to address breathing issues and other medical complications. If you have a physical attribute that you are concerned about, contact a Miami plastic surgeon today to discuss your options. Dr. Christopher Craft has years of experience, and will treat you with the respect you deserve as you make this decision.
