The nose is the center-most point of the face, and injuries to the nose can alter one's entire perception of facial balance and attractiveness. If you have a broken nose, with or without an overlying soft tissue injury, careful anatomic alignment of the nasal bones, septum, paired upper lateral and lower lateral cartilages, and skin envelope are critically important.
When I am addressing a traumatic nasal injury, I use the same type of anatomic analysis and meticulous surgical technique that I use when I am performing a cosmetic rhinoplasty or nosejob. While reconstructive nasal surgery is about returning a person to their baseline and cosmetic nasal surgery is about improving their appearance, both types of operations hinge on good surgical technique and sound planning.
If you have a nasal concern-- whether it is a broken bone, a soft tissue trauma, or an aesthetic complaint-- please feel free to contact my office at 212-452-2400 or office@LaraDevganMD.com.
