Severe Nasal Fracture Repair

If your nasal fracture is too severe to treat in our office, we will recommend surgery.

Common Causes of Nasal Fracture:
Contact sports, falls.

Symptoms of Nasal Fracture:
Bleeding, tenderness, crooked-appearing nose, swelling, black eyes and nasal congestion.

What to Expect

The procedure to correct a fractured nose is called rhinoplasty and Dr. Keith Hurvitz performs this procedure in a nearby operating room. Dr. Hurvitz is a plastic surgeon who also completed his residency in Ears, Nose and Throat so he has a thorough understanding of not just cosmetics but also of how the nose functions on the inside. The length of the procedure depends on the severity of the fracture. Recovery time is about two weeks and medications are prescribed to control discomfort. Dr. Hurvitz places a small cast on the nose to ensure appropriate healing and he removes it at a postoperative visit about a week after surgery.
