Nasal Fractures Repair
Nasal fractures can occur from a variety of trauma, from auto accidents to sports injuries to personal altercations. When you suffer a nose fracture, it is always wise to be examined promptly by a physician. The nasal structures are a complicated balance of bone, cartilage and tissue that can be easily damaged. Both functional and aesthetic issues can stem from a broken nose. If it ever happens, get to a doctor soon. The emergency physician will likely refer you to a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon for help.
Dr. Eric Cerrati has the skill and experience to repair all types of nasal fractures at his South Jordan and Salt Lake City offices. In fact, most broken nose repairs can be performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia. However, some patients prefer general anesthesia so they cannot see, hear or feel anything throughout the procedure. Dr. Cerrati can explain more in a consultation with you at the hospital or in his office.

Much can happen when your nose suffers an impact. The nature of the impact, force, direction and other factors all contribute to the level of trauma, and that corresponds to the repairs you will need. Very often, the septum will be damaged, as well as the nasal bridge or “backbone” of your nose. Some related facial trauma may also be involved, necessitating more extensive repairs to achieve a balanced appearance.
Most importantly, Dr. Cerrati will use his reconstructive skills to conduct repairs that enable your nose to function as it is designed, allowing for uninhibited breathing. He will reshape and fashion your nose to look as normal as before. It may even be a good time to speak with Dr. Cerrati about any rhinoplasty enhancements you have wanted.
