Rhinoplasty with Nasal Valve Repair Following an Injury*

Procedure Details


Rhinoplasty After Injury

An accident that causes trauma to the nose can leave internal and external damage after a fracture heals. For example, this 21 yr old had nasal fractures resulting in a septal deviation, nasal valve collapse, a bony dorsal hump, and difficulty breathing. The injury also resulted in the appearance of a crooked nose. These were corrected by Dr. Kridel with a Septoplasty, Inferior Turbinate Reduction, and Rhinoplasty. Just 3 months after Rhinoplasty the patient is happy to have a straight nose and a tremendous improvement in her breathing. There will be more subtle improvement as the swelling continues to recede.
