Chris Reed He is about to enter the final phase of recovery after his brutal attack in New York City…and it will require him to go under the knife.
Sources close to the ‘SNL’ star tell TMZ… Chris is scheduled to have surgery Tuesday in the Big Apple to finish the job of permanently fixing his smashed nose. Now that it’s been two weeks since the initial injury—and the swelling has subsided—our sources say the doctor will have a clear vision of how to fix it.
We’re told the procedure will consist of breaking Chris’ nose and putting it back in the right place…and then letting him heal in hopes of returning the Hulk to his original form. There’s a lot of damage… remember one of Chris’ facial bones was cracked into 3 pieces.
Our sources say he will be under general anesthesia for 2-3 hours, and a plastic surgeon who specializes in this sort of thing will supervise the operation. While it may appear cosmetic, we’re told Kris isn’t aiming to change anything about his appearance.
Remember, it all started then A man punched Chris in the face With brass knuckles in an unsuccessful attempt to steal his chain. The comic was left in poor condition, with stitches in its place as a temporary fix. The perpetrator has not been arrested and the policemen are still searching for the perpetrator.
Although he’s recovering well, we’re told this latest hiccup will put him off more of his shows, though our sources say Chris is eager to get back on stage.
