It was arguably the second-most important event in the life of the young Internet sensation this year after Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson broke up in April. However, fans shouldn’t be too concerned. By all accounts, D’Amelio is recovering both physically from her surgery and emotionally from the breakup and will be back to dancing and doing what she does best soon.

Charli D’Amelio Surgery on Her Nose
Of course, the next question is why did Charli D’Amelio have surgery on her nose. While the details on how it happened are in short supply, D’Amelio broke her nose last August. She initially had breathing problems in one nostril and developed similar problems in the other nostril a few months later. Obviously, breathing problems and a broken nose would be scary for any person, especially a young dancer.
“Fun story time so I broke my nose in August and ever since then I have had breathing problems in my right nostril,” D’Amelio shared in April via Twitter. “I was supposed to have surgery in November and to fix it but then I started having problems in my left nostril and now I can barely breathe out of my nose at all.”
@charlidameliosurgery is done and i am so beyond excited that i was finally able to fix my breathing!!!!! and soon i will be able to be in dance classes again!!! 💕♬ original sound – sunrisemusic
Earlier this month, D’Amelio had surgery on her nose to address issues in both nostrils. The surgery was a success, with D’Amelio quick to post pictures of herself with a bandaged nose and bloodied face immediately after the surgery.
The first video she posted on TikTok after the surgery was quick to receive over 68 million likes. She has continued to post pictures of herself during her recovery with a bandage still on her nose and black eyes but otherwise looking like her old self. D’Amelio plans to get back to dancing sometime in August
“Thank you all so, so, so much for all of the sweet messages y’all are sending me,” she wrote on Twitter earlier this month. “I am still in a little bit of pain but I am extremely excited to be able to dance again in a few weeks!!”
Surgery After Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson Broke Up
As mentioned, the breathing problems and nose surgery have come after Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson broke up. Hudson is also a TikTok star known as LilHuddy with roughly 22 million followers. D’Amelio and the 18-year-old Hudson confirmed that they were in a relationship in January. However, the pair formally announced that they had split up in April.
The reason for the breakup played out on social media with D’Amelio upset that Hudson had kissed Nessa Barrett, another well-known TikTok performer. Hudson and Barrett don’t deny a fling but insist both were single at the time.
In any event, D’Amelio and Hudson are no longer a couple. With D’Amelio focusing on her recovery after nose surgery and her return to dancing, being single might be what’s best right now for TikTok’s biggest sensation.
