Nose Injuries

A broken nose isn’t the end of the world, but it is cause for a visit to the doctor. Even bumped or bruised noses can merit an appointment, depending on how they affect your health.

Will I Need Surgery?

Most broken noses can be fixed via closed reduction, a nonsurgical procedure done in the ambulatory surgery center. During a closed reduction, your physician will administer a local anesthetic, then manually realign the bones in your nose.

In some cases (or if you wait more than 14 days to see a doctor), a more extensive nasal surgery may be necessary to correct a break.
