Nasal Fracture Symptoms

With a broken nose, you have the choice to fix it or leave it alone. When you make this decision, it’s important to consider two things – how it looks and how it works. If you’re experiencing headaches, breathing problems, or drainage (following a broken nose), you should consider having your nose straightened. At Advanced ENT & Allergy Center, we can fix your broken nose, whether your injury happened today or 50 years ago.

Immediate symptoms of a broken nose:

  • Pain or tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising around the nose or eyes
  • Crooked or misshapen nose
  • Difficulty breathing through your nose
  • Runny nose

You can also experience ongoing symptoms from a broken nose that you chose not to fix at the time. These include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Difficulty breathing through your nose
  • Postnasal drip and nasal drainage

Alleviate Symptoms and Look Like New

If you think your nose is broken, or you are experiencing ongoing symptoms from a previous break, we offer several treatment options. First, we’ll do a total examination of the nose and sinuses to determine the cause of your symptoms and offer the best options. Our treatments include:

  1. Medication: Some broken noses just require rest, ice, and medication to alleviate symptoms.
  2. Septoplasty Surgery: A surgical procedure that straightens the septum from the inside to improve breathing, drainage, and headaches.
  3. Nose surgery: A surgical procedure that straightens the bones on the outside to make your nose look like it did prior to your injury.

Frequently Asked Questions about Broken Nose Treatment

+ Should I fix my broken nose?

This decision is entirely up to you. If your nose looks different because of your injury, you may want to have it reset. If you’re experiencing ongoing problems like headaches, breathing issues, or drainage – you should also consider having your septum straightened. Talk with a doctor.

+ What does a deviated septum surgery entail?

Septoplasty surgery can be done in-office with oral sedation. After a local numbing agent takes effect the surgery takes about an hour. It almost never requires packing and typically causes little pain. The procedure is covered by most health insurance plans.
