There are many potential interventions that can be utilized to correct a broken nose, depending on the type and extent of the damage. The timing of the repair of your broken nose can make a real difference.
Coming in for treatment within a few hours of sustaining the injury is ideal. If you are unable to come in for immediate repair of a broken nose, it may be best to repair it five to seven days after the injury. This will give the swelling time to ameliorate, offering your surgeon a better picture of the region.
