The person who had broken his nose when he was child cannot have his nose fixed by a simple bone relocation. People who have broken their one or more months ago can only fix their nose by rhinoplasty.
One month after fracturing of the nose occurred, the nasal bone will re-infuse. The earlier bone relocation is done the better. The patient has to visit the doctor in less than a week or maximum in three weeks. After one month it is too late; because the bone is already infused and fixed. In that case, the surgery will not be a therapeutic one and is not coverable by insurance company. Such noses can be repaired by plastic surgery techniques.
