A severely broken nose from facial trauma may require nasal reconstruction to restore nose shape and function. Nose trauma is common in sports injuries, vehicle accidents, burn injuries and other types of facial trauma situations. Since the nose is crucial for breathing, sense of smell and the central facial features, reconstruction of the nose must be carefully performed to restore form and function. Dr. Steven Rueda at Precision Medical Specialists offers nasal reconstruction surgery for nose trauma repair at our state-of-the-art medical center in Wellington, FL.
Unlike cosmetic rhinoplasty, nasal reconstruction includes restoring the functional aspects of the nose along with creating a pleasing shape. A severely broken nose or a nose that has collapsed due to injury to the structure may require cartilage, bone or skin grafts to recreate the entire feature. Ensuring the nasal passages are functional for breathing is vital, as well as reshaping the outer cartilage to form a balanced, beautiful nose. While nasal reconstruction is a complex procedure, it can be accomplished with excellent results with the right plastic surgeon.
