Corrected entry: In order to answer the obvious question - why doesn't he have rhinoplasty? - there is a scene in which we learn that C.D. is allergic to all known anaesthetics, local and general. No fire service in the world would allow anyone with an allergy like that anywhere near an active fire-fighting role, especially that of fire chief. He'd be lucky to get a desk job. What would happen if he was injured on the job - as firefighters very frequently are?
Factual error: It is not possible to be "allergic to all known anaesthetics". Amongst the amide local anesthetics lidocaine, prilocaine, bupivicaine, mepivacaine and dibucaine are naturally occurring substances and if administered without a preservative they cannot trigger an allergic reaction. If Bales is allergic to them, he'd be allergic to the metabolic processes of his own body. They are all powerful local anaesthetics and could easily be used for a radical rhinoplasty such as that required by Bales.
