Why You Should Get Your Broken Nose Repaired

A broken nose can occur from a fall or being hit in the face.  The bones in the nose are very thin making it the most injured bone in the body. Treating a broken nose is very important because it can affect you in ways other than cosmetically.

Consequences of Not Repairing A Broken Nose

Not repairing a broken nose will cause it to repair itself after about two weeks and more times than not, it heals the wrong way. This often leads to a crooked looking nose that may not work as well as it ought to. Your breathing is often compromised because your nasal airways are restricted.

Repairing A Broken Nose in Atlanta

The sooner you see a doctor about your broken nose, the easier it is to fix it.  We can often manually reposition all the bones and cartilage then hold everything together with a splint so that your nose can heal properly. Typically the splint is removed one week later.

Your nose can still be repaired and restored after the two-week mark, we’ll just need to use additional techniques to free up your broken nasal bones before restoring them to the correct position.

If you were never happy with the appearance of your nose, having a broken nose is an optimal time to consider reconstructive surgery.
