There are two types of nasal fractures: displaced and non displaced. The non displaced fractures do not require any treatment. It is very important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after a nasal fracture to get the most effective treatment. The sooner, the better, to avoid swelling of the nose soft tissues. Most of the times, a nasal fracture can be repaired in the clinic under local anesthesia. In some instance, when the fracture is severe, Dr. Abi Akl might need to perform a more extensive surgery under general anesthesia to restore the nose to its pre injury state, cosmetically and functionally.
