About Nasal Fractures

Nasal fractures can occur for a number of reasons due to collisions, trauma, or other related injuries. In some instances, the bone can not be reset manually and surgery may be necessary to correct the bone and cartilage that was damaged and misdirected. Dr. Michael Suzman, the board-certified plastic surgeon at WESTMED Group in Westchester County, NY, offers nasal fracture repair surgery to his patients that are seeking restoration for their broken noses. During a consultation, he will asses the damage and best treatment option and then will perform surgery to repair the fractures, realign the bone, and put the surrounding tissues back into place. This procedure can be helpful not only to improve the cosmetic appearance but to also help restore breathing issues. It is best to wait 2 – 3 months after the injury before seeking surgical repair. 

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for nose bone repair surgery:

  • Have suffered a nasal fracture due to trauma or an accident
  • Have had the injury for at least 2 – 3 months to allow healing to begin and swelling to subside
  • Have cosmetic issues related to fracture
  • Have breathing issues related to fracture
  • Desire a long-term solution
  • Desire a natural look

What to Expect

With less extensive breaks, the broken bones in the nose can simply be repositioned with special instruments. This would only require local anesthesia and could be an in-office surgery. For more extensive and multiple breaks, nasal bones, cartilage, and surrounding tissues and structures would have to be repositioned. The patient would be put under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility for an outpatient procedure. The nose would be properly stitched and dressed after surgery.

Anticipated Results

Patients can expect pain, discomfort, bruising, and swelling following surgery. Pain medication can be taken to resolve these symptoms. After surgery, there will be a number of follow-up visits to check on the progress of the healing nose. The plastic surgeon will provide clear instructions on how to care for the nose. After a few months, a patient should be able to see a noticeable difference in the nose and should continue to see improvement for up to a year.
