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.
Not sure whether or not to see an ear, nose, and throat doctor? Give us a call if you have:
- Difficulty breathing
- Broken skin on the surface of the nose
- A collapsed bridge or dorsum of the nose
- Swelling around eyes
- Deviation of the nose
Will I Need Surgery?
Surgery is generally indicated if deformity of the nose or septum is present.
