Accidents happen. We all know that there are situations and occasions where the inevitable happens and something gets broken, bruised or scratched. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much care and caution you employ, there are things that are totally out of your control. These accidents and injuries can even happen to your nose.
The Mayo Clinic published some preventative guides to preventing nose injury and fractures. Here are some helpful tips for you, so you can prevent harm to your nose or a nasal fracture.
In the unfortunate event that you do sustain injury to your nose such as a nasal fracture, be sure to get treatment within a few hours of the injury’s occurrence to ensure that bleeding and infection does happen.
Dr. Ransom will determine what form of treatment is needed for your particular injury or nasal fracture. Timing will also be determined based on swelling, injury and age of the injury. Call and book your appointment with Dr. Ransom if you’ve experienced a broken nose. During your consultation he will discuss the details and all types of nasal surgery that are available to you.
