Nasal
Fracture Repair

Nasal fractures occur following nasal trauma and cause visible deformity with various degrees of concomitant obstruction. Minor, minimally displaced fractures often do not require a surgical repair. Obvious displacements of the nasal framework necessitate manipulation to restore original form and function.

CONCERNS
PROCEDURE SPECIFICS
BEFORE SURGERY
AFTER SURGERY

Shifted and deviated nasal position, nasal obstruction.

Most nasal fractures can be manipulated into their original place using manual repositioning, without incisions. There is a 4-6 week window during which nasal bones remain relatively weak and can be repositioned without re-breaking of the framework. Older fractures require tiny access incisions and re-fracturing of the nasal bones to accomplish the repair.

Anesthesia might be local or general, depending on patient age, preference, and duration since fracture.

Icing is recommended, especially during the first week following a fracture, to reduce swelling and help assess the severity of displacement. Older (>3 weeks) fractures do not require icing or another pre treatment.

Reduction of nasal fracture is an ambulatory procedure, with patients going home on the day of their surgery. About 7 days off from work or school are needed while the nose is protected with a splint. Nasal dressings, splints, and sutures (if applicable) are removed 5-7 days after surgery. Sports and strenuous activity should be restricted for 4-6 weeks to allow for stabilization of nasal bones.
