Broken Nose or Nasal Fracture

A broken nose is commonly referred to as a nasal fracture and is due to a crack or break in the nose. It can be a painful experience and lead to swelling and bruising. Severe cases may lead to a crooked nose and trouble breathing.  Potential symptoms include pain, altered shape, bleeding, a feeling that the nasal passages are blocked, and a discharge of mucus. Rhinoplasty is an effective procedure that can be used to realign a broken nose or to repair any deformities that were caused.

Broken Nose or Nasal Fracture Questions & Answers

How can I tell if my nose is actually broken or just crooked?

It can be difficult to tell if a nose is truly broken, other than very obvious signs like a major deviation to one side or severe flattening or depression of the nose. However, if the concern arises after a nasal trauma, patients may have a broken nose if the trauma was followed by a bloody nose. This is an indication of tearing of the periosteum (supplies blood to the nose), which usually occurs when nasal bone fractures.

Can a broken nose be corrected years after the original injury?

Although it is advised that patients fix a broken nose before the body’s natural healing process takes full form, a broken nose can be “reset” through a fracture-reduction rhinoplasty, but it will require re-breaking of the nose through an osteotomy and resetting of the nasal bones.
