Case 06: Broken Nose Rhinoplasty

Broken Nose Rhinoplasty – Severe Nasal Deviation

This athletic male in his late 20’s sustained an acute nasal bone fracture while training in martial arts, resulting in significant nasal deviation.  The nasal bones were carefully reduced to restore his original pre injury appearance.

A broken nose can be a painful and traumatic experience, but it can also lead to lasting aesthetic and functional issues. In cases of severe nasal deviation, a rhinoplasty may be recommended to correct the issue. We will discuss why and when someone might consider a rhinoplasty procedure to repair a broken nose. 
Why Consider a Rhinoplasty to Repair Severe Nasal Trauma?

A broken nose can cause significant aesthetic and functional problems, including nasal deviation, breathing difficulties, and chronic congestion. A rhinoplasty can help to correct these issues, allowing for improved nasal function and a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This can lead to an improvement in quality of life and increased self-confidence for the patient.

What to Expect From the Procedure

A rhinoplasty performed to correct a broken nose is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia. The specific details of the surgery will depend on the individual case, but typically involve reshaping the nose to correct any deviation and improve breathing function. Recovery time can vary, but most patients can return to work or school within a week of the procedure.
