Nasal Fracture Repair Plastic Surgery
The nose is prone to injuries when you are involved in vehicle accidents, falls, contact sports and other facial trauma incidents. The nasal bone can be fractured, and the cartilage can be damaged, causing a deviated septum, breathing problems or cosmetic issues. While some broken nose injuries can be treated with conservative medical care, more severe nose fractures can require nose surgery. Maia Plastic Surgery offers nasal fracture repair plastic surgery at our medical center in Tysons Corner, VA.
Broken noses are a common injury – the nose protrudes from the face and is vulnerable when there is a direct blow to the face. Athletes in sports like baseball, basketball, football and boxing can sustain a nasal fracture from a fall, ball or fist to the face. Kids can fall and break their nose, and facial fractures are prevalent in vehicle accidents. Most broken noses can be taped or splinted by a doctor to repair the damage, but some injuries can be severe, changing the form and function of the nose. Plastic surgery may be required to restore normal shape and breathing function.
