A broken nose is not only extremely painful, it can change the appearance of your nose and face. Nose fractures are common. It does not take much impact to crack the delicate bones that support the nose cartilage and structure. Blunt force to the face during a car accident or an elbow smacking your nose while playing basketball can cause a nasal fracture. While not all broken noses require surgery or repair, if it impacts your nose function or appearance, you may want to visit us at City Facial Plastics for a consultation.

Many broken noses can be repositioned, splinted and taped to restore the shape. If the fracture was minor, just readjusting the nose and allowing it to heal may be all that is needed. However, more severe fractures could have broken shards of bone that need to be removed or created blockages in the nasal passage. The nose can also be deformed due to the injury. Surgery can reform the nasal passages to ensure proper breathing and sinus drainage, as well as reshape the exterior of the nose for aesthetic purposes.

Do You Need Nose Surgery?

Nose fractures change the structure of the nose both inside and out. Many times, a nose fracture is allowed to heal and not positioned correctly. There can be damage to the septum or other internal components that interfere with breathing. The nose also may heal crooked, changing the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty restores function and shape to the nose, even for nose fractures that have already healed.

Nose fractures are easier to repair before they heal. If you have a broken nose, seeking a consultation with a facial plastic surgeon is a good idea. It is important to ensure your nose will heal properly without airway blockages or changes to the shape. Contact City Facial Plastics today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gary Linkov if you have a nose fracture that may need repair or rhinoplasty.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!
