Nasal Fracture in Long Island, NY
Inside your nose are several tiny bones that help you breathe and smell. Nasal fractures may interfere with these functions and also change the way your nose looks. For residents of Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York, Eunice E. Park, MD, is a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon and ear, nose, and throat (otolaryngology) specialist who offers treatment for nasal fractures.
What are Nasal Fractures?
Your nose stands away from your face more than any other feature, so it is prone to injury and trauma. Sometimes the injuries simply hurt and may cause your nose to bleed. In more serious situations, you may break one of the many tiny bones in the nose. This can affect how well you can breathe and smell. If your nose heals improperly, you may end up with a bump on the bridge or a crooked nose. Dr. Park is an ENT specialist who is also a certified plastic surgeon. Her treatments for nasal fractures repair the broken bones while preserving an attractive natural appearance.
Benefits of Treatment for Nasal Fractures
Having your nasal fracture treated by Dr. Park will restore the function of your nose and reduce the chances of developing complications. Dr. Park also has an eye for repairing nasal fractures in a way that minimizes the cosmetic effects of the fracture.
Am I a Candidate for Nasal Fractures Treatment?
If you have suffered an injury to your nose, you should be evaluated by Dr. Park, even if you do not have symptoms of a broken nose. Bleeding can occur deep inside the nose, and the tiny bones may break without significant pain. You may not realize that you have a nasal fracture until days or even weeks after the injury.
What to Expect from Nasal Fractures Treatment
Treatment for nasal fractures aims to restore the function of the nose. This may involve:
- Repositioning the broken bones
- Using bone and cartilage grafts
- Using advanced surgical techniques to replace shattered bone
After your treatment for a nasal fracture, you may have swelling, bruising and pain. Dr. Park may prescribe antibiotics and pain medications. You will need to rest at home with your head elevated. You should also protect your nose from further injury.
