Facial Cosmetic Surgery and the Broken Nose
The nose is the most commonly broken feature on the face
This makes sense, because it not only protrudes from the face, but it is also centrally located. A nasal fracture is usually caused because of a sudden impact. The blow causes swelling inside and outside the nose and results in significant pain. A broken nose not only alters a person’s appearance, but can cause breathing difficulties. Black eyes usually result from fractured nasal bones as well.
Dr. Cory Torgerson is a licensed otolaryngologist and also has his certification as a facial cosmetic surgeon
Treat Your Broken Nose As Soon As Possible
It is important to see your doctor as soon as possible if you think you have broken your nose. They will check if there is a collection of blood on the septum, which is the wall of bone and cartilage separating the two sides of your nose. This condition is known as septal hematoma and is best if treated as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the fracture, you may be referred to an otolaryngologist, which is a head and neck surgeon. Dr. Torgerson is a licensed otolaryngologist and also has his certification as a facial cosmetic surgeon. Because of this, you can be confident that he “knows noses”!
The nose is comprised of very delicate bones and cartilage. If a broken nose is dealt with immediately, it can be reshaped easily. The doctor may order an X-ray or CT scan to assess the extent of the damage, because it is not uncommon for eyes, teeth, and jaw to be affected as well. It is possible for the nose to be repaired right in the doctor’s office under local anaesthesia. The nose specialist will reposition your nose and hold it in place with a cast made of plaster or metal. This cast acts as a splint and maintains the repositioning for one week. Aesthetics is not the only reason to act quickly if you think you have fractured your nose, since difficulty in breathing can often result as well.
Take an advantage to seek a professional facial plastic surgeon who is also an otolaryngologist
Change Your Appearance During Reconstructive Surgery
If someone puts up with the pain and procrastinates seeing a professional for longer than 2 weeks, they will have to wait for several months before their nose can be surgically repaired. After this amount of time, a successful repair may not possible due to the amount of swelling. It is impossible for the surgeon to see the size and shape of the original nose. The good news is that if you were unhappy with your original nose, it could be altered to change your appearance during reconstructive surgery.
This is where it would be to your advantage to seek a professional facial plastic surgeon who is also an otolaryngologist. After having your nose broken, you want to have the best repair possible to restore your appearance as well as your self-esteem. A consultation with Dr. Torgerson at our private surgical facility would allow you to look at before and after photos of rhinoplasty patients as well as revision patients. If you had experienced anxiety because of the appearance of your nose, Dr. Torgerson could alter your nose to blend perfectly with your other features.
In the hands of the right professional, it is possible to restore a broken nose.
