The nose, a prominent facial feature, is composed of bone and cartilage, forming the bridge, nostrils, and nasal passages. However, due to its protruding position, the nose is susceptible to injuries, particularly nasal fractures caused by blunt force impacts. When the nasal bone breaks or the cartilage is damaged, it can not only impact breathing function but also alter the cosmetic shape of the nose. At Vantage Plastic Surgery, we offer expert nasal fracture repair plastic surgery at our medical centers in UES Manhattan and Brooklyn, ensuring both form and function are restored.

Understanding Nasal Fractures

The nasal bone extends slightly onto the bridge of the nose, supporting the cartilage and septum that collectively create the raised structure of the nose. Nasal fractures commonly occur from accidents, contact sports, or other incidents involving a blunt force impact to the nose. While not every broken nose requires surgery, it is crucial to have any nasal fracture examined by a physician to determine the appropriate treatment. Severe fractures, especially those causing nose deformities, may necessitate plastic surgery to repair the broken nasal bone and reshape the nose.


The Consequences of Untreated Nasal Fractures

Often, individuals leave a broken nose unrepaired, thinking it will heal naturally. However, this approach can lead to functional or cosmetic concerns later on. Physicians may tape the nose, but this might not position the bone and cartilage correctly for optimal healing. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, a double board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in nose reshaping and broken nose repairs, emphasizes the importance of addressing nasal fractures promptly. Whether you have a freshly broken nose or a previously broken nose that healed misshapen, Dr. Shteynberg can provide the necessary intervention.

Nasal Fracture Repair Techniques

Freshly Broken Nose:
If you have recently suffered a nasal fracture, prompt intervention can ensure proper healing and help maintain the desired shape. Dr. Shteynberg employs advanced techniques to repair the broken nasal bone, allowing it to heal correctly.
Previously Broken Nose with Disfigurement:
For individuals with a misshapen nose due to a previous fracture, rhinoplasty is a viable solution. Dr. Shteynberg can reshape the nose and correct any disfigurement caused by the nasal fracture, restoring both function and aesthetics.

Prevention Is Key

Preventing a misshapen nose resulting from a fracture is more straightforward than reshaping it later in life. If you suspect a broken nose, seeking a consultation for nasal fracture repair plastic surgery is crucial. This proactive approach can prevent issues such as a crooked nose or bridge bumps that may require resolution if the nose does not heal correctly.
