Nasal Fracture Repair Plastic Surgeon

Due to the three-dimensional and centered position of the nose, it is often the facial feature that is fractured in accidents and traumatic facial events. An air bag to the face in a car crash or a blow to the nose during a soccer game can fracture the nasal bone and cause disfigurement. Not only can this change the appearance of the nose, it can cause airway obstructions and other nasal problems. Dr. Rousso is one of the top rhinoplasty and nasal reconstruction surgeons in NYC, offering expert nasal fracture repairs to restore the form and function of the nose after trauma.

Nasal fracture repair is recommended when the damage has caused deformation of the nasal passages, creating difficulties when breathing or limiting sinus drainage. It is also desired when the shape of the nose is disfigured, for aesthetic purposes. The best time to undergo nasal fracture repair without surgery is shortly after the trauma occurs and before the nose completely heals, usually within a week of the injury. However, this does not always occur, or non-surgical options may not be enough to repair the damage, requiring surgical intervention.

Surgical Nose Reconstruction

When surgery is needed to repair a nose fracture, the extent of reconstruction will depend on the deformity. For some, the goal is to relieve issues with the septum to improve breathing function, while others may be more concerned with the aesthetics of the nose. Dr. Rousso can carefully evaluate the damage and determine the best options for repair, from minor adjustments to complete nose reconstruction, if necessary. His extensive experience as a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty gives him a unique set of skills to perform all levels of broken nose repairs, from simple to complex.

If your nose has been broken or fractured, contact the NYC office of Dr. Rousso for a consultation. His expertise can help restore the form and function of your nose for improved comfort and aesthetic appeal.
