Broken Nose: Before and After Photos

A man appeared in our offices with a dramatically broken nose. Dr. John Bennett, one of our ENT doctors in our Salt Lake City office, determined we needed to break the patient’s nose again in order to reset and improve the look.

Dr. Bennett performed a rhinoplasty and the results are dramatic. Where the patient’s nose was once crooked, it now sits straight and natural. The patient was pleased and recovery time was rapid. The before and after photos are separated by two months only.

Rhinoplasty Procedures in Salt Lake City and Draper, Utah

Broken noses and nasal fractures are common. We’re expert at setting and treating broken noses. Surprisingly, setting a broken nose is less painful than you might expect. It’s best to set the broken nose within two weeks of injury. This helps ensure the nose does not set in an unnatural position. However, if it has been longer than two weeks after the injury, we can break the nose and reset it as we did in this example.  Typically, a broken nose and/or rhinoplasty requires a week of healing.
