Josh Hutcherson Shows Off His Unbandaged Nose


Yesterday we saw photos of Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson nursing a nose injury of some kind underneath a pile of gauze and tape. Today we see him looking fit as a fiddle, unbandaged and seemingly healed. According to Hutcherson’s press rep, the young actor underwent a procedure to fix his deviated septum. Thankfully, by the look of the photos below, his nose doesn’t appear to have been altered in any way.

American actor Josh Hutcherson has unveiled the results of his nose job. The 19-year-old Hunger Games started the day with his bandages still on but later revealed his new look after visiting his plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. The young star was quite swollen following the procedure but looked in good spirits. It generally takes six weeks for swelling to go down after rhinoplasty but it can take a full year for final result be apparent. He explained that he was recovering at home and keeping himself entertained by watching Jennifer Love Hewitt’s hit Lifetime show, The Client List. He added: ‘…recovery sucks…thank god for a marathon on lifetime…#theclientlist thanks @TheReal_Jlh.’ Josh initially told his Twitter followers that he had the procedure to treat a ‘broken nose’ but later told TMZ that he went under the knife to fix a ‘deviated septum.’ ‘I was 90 percent blocked in my right nostril,’ he told the website yesterday.

Honestly, I only posted these photos today as a follow-up to the ones we saw yesterday. Many people have many different theories about what is going on with Josh’s nose. I find it curious that the story keeps changing but … it looks like “deviated septum” is what they are going with so, I guess that’s the story they’re sticking to. Whether he broke his nose and doesn’t want anyone to know about it or whatever, the bandages are off and he looks about healed. Only Josh (and presumably his mother Michelle Hutcherson) nose the truth … get it? ;)

    Technically, a broken nose (or any blow to the face) can cause a deviated septum, so both statements could be true.
