Old Fractured Nose Surgery In Thailand

An Old Fractured Nose is a break or crack in a bone in your nose, typically above the bridge, caused by a traumatic accident. This can cause breathing issues and a crooked appearance, prompting you to consider rhinoplasty. Surgeons commonly employ this surgery to repair and restore patients’ noses to their original appearance. If you are dissatisfied with the results of your nose surgery, you can request a revision rhinoplasty. This allows the surgeon to correct earlier work and restore your nose to its former appearance.
An incision through the outer nose is rarely necessary because access can be obtained through the nostrils.
However, the septum will be incised to start the reshaping procedure. The septum is straightened by partially removing or adjusting the problematic bone and cartilage. To position the septum in the center of the nasal vault, cartilage is incised, shaved, or sliced. To repair a faulty septum, the cartilage may be weakened before being rebuilt with autologous cartilage from another part of the body. Bone is removed instead of sculpted. The goal is always to rectify the abnormality while maintaining the nasal structure. Sometimes septoplasty is combined with rhinoplasty to reshape the outer nose.

Surgery typically takes around an hour, depending on the level of correction required.

Post-operative care: Recovery requires appropriate rest. A plastic splint contoured to your nose can help preserve alignment. Your airway may be briefly closed with gauze to halt the hemorrhage.
For three weeks, no glasses frames should rest on the bridge of the nose.
Recovery Period:
You should avoid blowing your nose for the first ten days. Cold showers can alleviate edema. During this period, avoid strenuous exercises and sneezing.

Potential risks and complications:
Infection is uncommon, but when it happens, it can cause serious difficulties. Lacerations leave scars. External scars may require surgical revision. Internal nasal scars and abnormalities can increase the risk of nosebleeds. Nerve damage can cause sensory loss or paralysis. Injuries may block the tiny holes that drain your sinuses.
Pressure in the sinuses can cause unpleasant headaches.
The treatment is conducted under local, IV, or general anesthesia.
Hospital admission:
It relies on both your and your surgeon’s preferences. Old cracked noses can be repaired on an outpatient basis, at a hospital, or in an ambulatory surgery suite.
Preparation for surgery:

During consultation, a medical history (including allergies, major medical conditions, and prescriptions) will be assessed, followed by a physical examination and laboratory tests.
Blood and urine samples will be taken for pre-operative laboratory examinations. X-rays may be used to assess bone structure.
 Avoid smoking for 3-4 weeks before surgery as it disrupts circulation and slows healing.
 You may need to abstain from alcohol for a week prior to surgery and during recuperation.
 Avoid using medications including hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and vitamins for at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complications before surgery.
Avoid using aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal supplements as they can cause more bleeding.
