As the central feature of the face, the nose often bears the brunt of the trauma caused by accidents and injuries.
If the break or fracture is severe enough, it will require nose surgery.

His extensive training, consummate artistry, and passion for helping to restore his patients’ good looks have made him among the most sought-after nose surgeons in Miami and beyond. Contact Dr. Lampert today to receive his expert opinion on what can be done to repair a broken or fractured nose.
What is the treatment for a broken or fractured nose?
A broken or fractured nose can be intensely painful and can dramatically impair one’s quality of life. The cartilage may be damaged, the nasal tissue may be swollen, and a septal hematoma may be present. The eyes may appear discolored, and bruising may be present in the midface. Proper breathing is most likely impeded.
Nasal fracture repair
Nasal fractures can result from minor accidents or fights that come to blows. While a nasal fracture is not as serious as a broken nose, it can still be extremely painful and can deform the nasal shape and compromise breathing function. Dr. Lampert has ample expertise in repairing nasal fractures and can restore an attractive appearance, boosting your self-image.
Broken nose repair
While minor fractures may heal on their own with the help of a splint, a severely broken nose will need more in-depth surgery. Dr. Lampert can perform an operation to correct the nasal exterior, improve breathing, and repair damaged cartilage and bone. Undergoing surgery right away can prevent a crooked nose or deviated septum.
