A nasal fracture is when the bones or cartilage of the nose are damaged as a result of trauma. This is usually the result of an accident, bump or injury. People with a nasal fracture may experience symptoms such as nosebleeds, nasal deformity, nasal congestion, pain and bruising. These symptoms may vary depending on the severity and location of the fracture.

Nasal Fracture Process in Children

Although nasal fractures are less common in children, they can still have serious consequences. Those with nasal fractures in children may experience problems such as breathing difficulties or a permanent change in the shape of the nose. Therefore, it is important that children with nasal fractures are evaluated early by an otolaryngologist. Surgery is usually performed to correct the shape or function of the nose and may require a special approach, taking into account the development of the nose in children.


Nasal Fracture Process in Adults

Nasal fracture surgery in adults is performed to restore the shape of the nose, restore respiratory function and improve the patient's quality of life. These surgeries are usually performed with procedures called closed reduction or rhinoplasty. While closed reduction is a local procedure to fix broken bones or cartilage, rhinoplasty is performed to surgically improve the shape and function of the nose.


Healing Process and Risks

The recovery process from nasal fracture surgery usually depends on the severity of the fracture, the type of surgery and the general health of the patient. A properly performed surgery is usually successful and safe. The recovery period can vary from a few weeks to several months and it is important for patients to follow regular check-ups as prescribed by their doctor.
