Welcome to Emirates Hospitals Group, where we specialize in comprehensive nasal injury treatment in Dubai. Our skilled ENT specialists are dedicated to providing effective care for patients experiencing nasal fractures and injuries, ensuring optimal recovery and restored nasal function.

Broken nose, or nasal injury, refers to a fracture or break in the bones and cartilage of the nose. It commonly occurs due to trauma, such as sports injuries, accidents, or physical altercations. Symptoms of a broken nose include pain, swelling, bruising around the nose and eyes, difficulty breathing through the nose, and nosebleeds. Diagnosis involves a physical examination by a healthcare provider and sometimes imaging tests like X-rays or CT scans to assess the extent of the injury. Treatment may include realignment of the nasal bones (closed reduction), nasal packing to control bleeding, and in some cases, surgical intervention to repair severe fractures or correct deformities. Recovery typically involves managing symptoms such as pain and swelling, and following medical advice to ensure proper healing of the nasal structures.


Symptoms of Nasal Injuries

Prompt evaluation and treatment are essential to alleviate symptoms and prevent complications. Nasal injuries, such as fractures or trauma to the nose, may present with the following symptoms:

  • Pain or tenderness around the nose
  • Swelling and bruising, particularly around the eyes
  • Difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Nasal deformity or asymmetry
  • Nosebleeds (epistaxis)

Diagnosis of Nasal Injuries

Precise diagnosis guides personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s specific nasal injury and associated symptoms. Accurate diagnosis of nasal injuries involves a thorough assessment by our ENT specialists, including:

  • Physical examination: Evaluation of nasal structure, symmetry, and function.
  • Imaging studies: X-rays or CT scans to assess the extent and location of nasal fractures and associated injuries.
  • Nasal endoscopy: Examination of nasal passages for internal injuries or blockages.

Procedures for Nasal Injury Treatment

Our nasal injury treatment involves a range of procedures tailored to address different types and severities of nasal fractures and injuries:

  • Closed Reduction: Non-surgical realignment of displaced nasal bones to restore normal nasal anatomy.
  • Open Reduction: Surgical intervention to reposition and stabilize severely displaced or complex nasal fractures.
  • Nasal Packing: Insertion of nasal packs to control bleeding and support healing after nasal trauma.
  • Septoplasty: Correction of a deviated septum often associated with nasal injuries, improving breathing and nasal function.

Recovery Process After Nasal Injury Treatment

Recovery from nasal injury treatment focuses on ensuring optimal healing and restoration of nasal function:

  • Post-operative care: Following surgical procedures or nasal realignment, including pain management and monitoring for complications.
  • Activity restriction: Avoiding activities that may impact the healing nasal structures.
  • Follow-up appointments: Regular visits to monitor healing progress, remove nasal packs if used, and assess long-term outcomes.

Our goal is to provide comprehensive care and support throughout the recovery process, optimizing nasal function and cosmetic appearance.
