Rhinoplasty for nasal fracture
Nasal trauma can result in a fracture of the nasal bones with associated upper lateral cartilages. When the nose is crooked and twisted it is usually related to previous trauma. A deviated septum can also result from the injury as well as a fractured nose. In most cases repair of a deviated septum on the internal portion of the nose and straightening the outside of the nose are performed simultaneously. Please see the link below where we have performed a rhinoplasty to straighten out previously fractured noses
