Rhinoplasty for Broken Nose
Rhinoplasty (or a nose job as it’s often referred to) is a popular cosmetic procedure. For a broken nose, rhinoplasty can also work well to correct deformities or defects caused by the break.
Rhinoplasty may be an ideal option for a broken nose, although treatment needs to be prompt to avoid having the injury start to heal before the procedure is performed. If you think you may have a broken nose, seek treatment as soon as possible, and no later than 72 hours after the break. Although many people seek emergency care for a broken nose (since it often produces bleeding), rhinoplasty for nose realignment should be sought as soon as possible after the injury occurs. Your doctor may decide to order a CAT scan to evaluate the sinus channels, septum, bone, cartilage and other surrounding tissues.
It is important to choose a highly qualified, board certified cosmetic surgeon if you’re considering this procedure. If you’ve suffered a broken nose and not had it corrected, or weren’t happy with an earlier corrective procedure, please contact Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center in Denver at 303-367-9000 or serotamd.com for a consultation.
