How Long Before I Can Surgically Repair an "Acute Nasal Fracture"
Hi I live in San Fran and had to go to the ER yesterday after I was hit in the nose; I got X-rays and diagnosed with an "acute nasal fracture". I was advised to go see a nose doctor in 5 days to remove the stitches and talk about the possibility of getting a surgical repair since my nose has shifted. How soon can I have the nose repaired? Would insurance cover the rhinoplasty portion as well? If not what would be the out of pocket cost for that portion (my ins coverage has always been good)?
A broken nose should be reset as soon as possible.
Nasal fractures should be reduced within two weeks of injury
