Over the course of a lifetime, it is entirely possible that a person will incur a nasal trauma that leads to a nasal fracture. After a nasal fracture, broken nose correction is necessary.
Visiting our office within three hours of nasal trauma is ideal for broken nose correction. During this time window, the cartilage and nasal bones may not have healed into their incorrect alignment yet. A closed reduction can often be performed, where the nose is reset to a proper position. This will not require any incisions.

The nose is a delicate and complex structure. It is also very exposed, especially when it is prominent, and as such, accidents can happen. For those patients dealing with nasal fractures as a result of trauma, we offer corrective rhinoplasty.
Nasal fractures are frequently caused by facial injuries during physical activities like sports. A nasal fracture is a displacement of the bones of the nose, often including the nasal septum. This may create an issue with the external dimensions of the nose and can also result in breathing obstruction.
