Rhinoplasty Nasal Surgery Important Information

Question: Re: Re: Nasal injury

Dr. Bermant:

First, I would like to express to you my sincerest gratitude for the time you took out of your busy schedule to offer me your insights and your thoughts regarding my somewhat bizarre set of circumstances. I received your note after having another surgical procedure, which at this time, seems to be healing well, although time will surely tell what the true prognosis will be.

The condition I reported to you did not improve with antibiotics. When I returned to my doctor following a week on Cipro, he told me that I needed to have surgery as soon as possible. He admitted that he was not certain what the source of the progressive lumping was, but spent an hour with me, providing information about what he believed to be the possibilities (with the help of a series of questions I brought along with me). One possibility he gave me was that it was something surgical that could be cut out (periostial thickening?); another possibility that he gave me was that it was fluid build up of some kind that resulted from an infection and could be drained from the inside; yet another possibility was that it was some form of autoimmune disorder, such as lupus (he doubted this was the case, but felt it necessary to mention anyway). Needless to say, I was somewhat concerned about the possibilities, but went ahead with the surgery on his advice. I suppose many people would argue that a second opinion would have been warranted in this case, but I trusted the circumstances and the surgeon, and decided to follow his advice.

I had the surgery 3 and a half weeks ago. It turned out that the painful lump was caused by a build-up of fluid -- a fluid filled sac that had formed in the area between the periostium and the bone. Apparently, this was caused by an infection. My doctor's best explanation for why the infection developed (and hence the fluid build-up) was that he treated the area too aggressively following the surgery in December. That is, he began to place cortisone shots in there almost immediately after the surgery (to control swelling and thickening), along with shots of Dermis to fill in irregularities and indentations in the bone that I found aesthetically displeasing (which became apparent after pieces of broken bone were removed from the December surgery when he sutured the detatched bone back to the periostium). Anyhow, it appears that all of these shots of various compositions resulted in an infection, and caused fluid to build up in that area. So, in this most recent surgery, my doctor drained the fluid from the inside, cut out all of the Dermis he had injected in various places, and covered over the left side of my nose with a cartilage graft from my septum. The purpose of this most recent graft was to take care of the aesthetic problem caused by the bone irregularity now that some of it was lost as a result of the car accident and the December surgery done to re-attach the severed components. He also cut some of the periostium away (though not all of it), because it had thickened somewhat, and he said that in my case, it has this tendency to start "building bone" and cause lumping.

When my cast was removed 4 days after the surgery, everything looked great (but was obviously swollen). The left side of my nose looked smooth and no irregularities or indentations were apparent. My doctor said, however, that he was not pleased with the degree of redness in the area where the problem was before, so he put me on Cipro again for 10 days. I was told that the redness indicated the presence of some residual bacteria which could cause a re-infection. I was also told that remaining fluid was still draining inside the nose, but I had to watch it closely because there was a chance that the fluid could re-accumulate while the nose was healing (after the 3 week healing time when the bone and periostium adhere, any remaining fluid could get 'trapped'). If re-accumulation of any kind seemed to be occurring, I was told to contact my doctor so that he could drain it manually.

For the first 3 weeks, everything was flat and smooth. About 1 week after I finished the Cipro, I began to notice a slight raising in the "problem" area. so I contacted my doctor, and he drained it in the office with a needle (OUCH!). He said that there was no pus in the fluid he drained, and only a bit of blood came out (which he showed me). He then checked it again 2 days later and said that I did not need to have it drained again at this time. I was told however, that I must continue to watch it because there is a chance it might reaccumulate and if this occurs, I have to have it drained again. He did assure me, however, that this process should not go on indefinitely.

At this point, everything seems to be healing appropriately. From an aesthetic perspective, the left side looks good...smooth, no indentations, no visible irregularities. It does still look at bit 'swollen', but I suppose that at this point, it should. My doctor did tell me that at some point, he will have to put those cortisone shots in again to prevent thickening from occurring. He doesn't want to do it yet, because he said that I seem to respond differently than most people, and my nose is highly sensitive and gets infected easily from too aggressive interventions of this nature.

I am happy at this point that the ordeal seems to be over, and I am pleased that aesthetically speaking, things seem to look good. I am however, still somewhat concerned about the future...in the past, things looks good for awhile, but began to reveal problems months down the road (4 months or so post-op). My doctor assured me that structurally speaking, I should not be concerned that the left side of my nose is at a grave disadvantage (I had asked if it was signficantly weaker and more vulnerable to being hit, etc...because of all of the interventions that had occurred, removal of bone, cutting a portion of the periostium, etc.). My biggest fear is that down the road, my nose is going to collapse. I am feeling somewhat apprehensive about doing "normal" things at this point, because I guess I am still not totally convinced that the left side of my nose is structurally sound. Perhaps with time, I will come to realize that it is healing well, and become less apprehensive. It does throb from time to time, but I assumed that this was because it has only been a month since my surgery, and especially after getting a drainage needle in my nose, things are pretty sore.

I want you to know how much I appreciated your commentary. My condition was becoming more and more distressing, and I was afraid that my nose was going to fall apart in the process!! I also appreciated your frankness with regard to your concerns about the details of my condition as I relayed them to you. I must admit, it frightened me a bit, but I also realize that you are getting information from me second hand, without ever actually examining my nose yourself. Perhaps I was somewhat naive in following my doctor's advice without getting a second opinion, but the first surgery I had with him was so successful (although purely cosmetic in nature, as your alluded to), and he has a wonderful reputation for his work. I realize that this does not mean that he cannot make mistakes, but I do hope that this time, I am on the road to recovery. If anything goes wrong this time, another opinion will be sought out without hesitation.

Does this most recent procedure and explanation seem reasonable to you, given what I told you before? Do you think that at this point, even though things appear to be healing well, I need a second opinion? Is my concern about structural weakness and future difficulty unwarranted?

Thank You Again for Everything,
D, Ph.D.

I am glad things seem to be working out. From a distance I cannot make the types of recommendations you are requesting. It is difficult to predict what will happen with healing tissues and a doctor who has examined you has a better chance of giving you better information than one who has not.

Question: Re: broken nose

Dear Doctor,
I had surgery for a fractured nose about a month ago. The nose is back to its original position, but seems to be bigger in width size and bigger in nostril size too. The doctor says it takes time to swell down in size. How long does it take to heal to its original size

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Each person has their own healing time. Different trauma cause different amounts of swelling. The majority of swelling has gone for most patients within one to two weeks. Additional swelling and evolution of nasal shape occurs over the first 6 months. A doctor who has examined you and is treating you has a much better chance of giving you better information (unless that doctor does not do that type of work and does not know the information). That is why I prefer to follow my own patients with their nasal fractures and not let the HMOs send them to primary care providers who generally do not have the same degree of experience with this care.

Question: Re: broken nose

I was in a car acciedent about 3 days ago and i am noticing that my nose is slightly bent, At first i though tthis was due to the blow and it was just the swelling. I was given naproxen to reduce the swelling but I can stiil see that my nose is still slightly bent. I was wondering If I can visit my doctor and req that they put plastic splints on my nose, or at least aling it to the best they can do.

Thank you in advanced for you time.

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

It certainly sounds like you need an examination and evaluation. I prefer to see my patients with nasal fractures as soon as possible so that if displaced, suitable arrangements can be made for possible reeducation and splinting. I cannot make such a recommendation for a patient that I have not examined nor evaluated.

Question: Re: septal fx

Dear Dr. Bermant

Is it necessary to have surgery for a non-displaced fracture of the septum.

Thank You, L

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Some septal fractures have blood collections called hematoma that needs immediate treatment. Unstable nondisplaced fractures can move out of position. Even a non displaced stable fracture may benefit from an examination and evaluation. After such an evaluation, I can then tell a patient that surgery is or is not necessary for a non displaced septal fracture.

Question: Re: broken nose

Hi.I am A pro Boxer .My nose has been broken for 2years. On the left side of my noes.blocking air way on the left side of my noes.When it first happen I went to a doctor they said that they would have to remake my nose. An I would like to know how long would it take for my nose to heal. And would It be good as it was before.And would I be able to fight with the nose fix.and do you offer serviecs that can fix it.I thank you for your time. P

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Sometimes we are able to make the nose look as it did before the deformity, sometimes better, other times the deformity is too severe and something not as nice is the best that can be done. Questions about nasal deformity are better answered after an in office examination and evaluation. Time to healing depends on what needs to be fixed, and how it is fixed. The method of repair would also depend on the potential for continued trauma. We offer nasal reconstruction in our office. The best way to find what plastic and cosmetic surgery have to offer is having an evaluation and consultation.

Question: Re: broken noes ......Thanks for the Info.P


Question: Re: Broken Nose

Dear Dr. Bermant,
I ran across your web site after having an accident with my labrador retriever. He went under my legs while I was petting him and he bounced up quickly and hit me very hard with his hard forehead, right on my nose. My head was bent down, so when this 106 lb animal came up to greet me, the impact was straight to the middle of the bridge of my nose. I have a small nose and I heard a very definite "cracking" sound on impact. Bam! It hurt but there was no blood or anything, although in retrospect I should have probably put ice on it. I went to bed and when I got up the next morning, there was no bruising and no darkening under the eyes, etc.... My husband keeps telling me I am just fine and that because I didn't bleed I probably didn't break my nose. It hurts and I have had an off and on head ache around that area since. It happened Sat night at 12:00. Today is Labor Day Monday at 11:00 AM. The part low between my eyes still aches a little and my nose (bridge) looks a little swollen but not enough to concern me - but what concerns me I guess is that IT HURTS to touch it and when I breath it feels a little different than normal. Everytime I drink from a glass I hit it. I am driving my husband crazy. Am I making a bigger deal out of this than I need be? Thanks for any medical help!
Sincerely, S

Advice about correction of problems needs an evaluation. I cannot comment without an examination. That is what the office consultation is for, assessing an injury and offering suggestions for possible (if necessary) intervention.

Question: Re: broken nose

I really enjoyed your webite. It decrease a lot of anxiety for me. I recently broke my nose during an accident, actually it was shifted to the left about 1/4 inch. My eyes are swollen and black and blue(actually purple). When should I go for a reset. I dont need to change anything else about my nose ( I hope), but I'd like to get it reset due to the unevenness of my nose. How long should I wait to get it reset and do you know anyone in the Phoenix area? Thanking you in advance, A

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

I ask my patients to be seen as soon as possible so that the nasal fracture reduction can be scheduled. In general I try to reduce the fracture before swelling in the ER if possible, if not as soon as the swelling is down enough to do the reduction (closed fractures). Waiting too long makes reduction difficult with higher failure rates for good alignment.

I am sorry the http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com website is an example of my commitment to patient education. We see patients from all over. My office staff and I must use our time to help our own patients and cannot provide a general referral service.

Question: Re: Nasal fracture

Dear Dr. Bermant,
I found your website and thought I would ask you for your opinion.
My 11 month old daredevil, Q, fell on Nov.21 and bumped his nose on our hardwood floor. He screamed for about 3 minutes and it swelled up immediately, mostly on the right. He looked like a little boxer.
I called our clinic in a panic, and was told that it was not broken, to put ice on it and give him advil, and the swelling would subside in a few days. It did go down some, but remained after a week, so I took him in to be seen by our family practice doctor. He could tell just by looking at Q's nose that it had been broken. I am beating myself up for not following my instincts and taking him in.
We got a referral to a pediatric ENT, who gave us 3 options......to do nothing and let his nose be crooked, to wait until he is older and do an open reduction, or to try a closed reduction on Monday, 12/7, (16 days after the fracture occurred). He gave this procedure a 10-20% chance of success. I am concerned about puuting the little guy under a general anesthetic if the procedure is unlikely to work. Can you give me any idea what you think the success of a closed reduction would be? And how safe you feel anesthesia is for an 11 month old?
Thanks you in advance for any information you can give me.
Q's mom, Nan

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

I too prefer early treatment of nasal fractures. Delayed treatment especially in the young have higher failure rates due to early healing. Without examining the patient, I cannot give specific advice but would probably offer an attempt to realign the fragments as soon as possible (for a patient seeing me, I might even try for surgery this weekend). It really depends on the extent of the nasal fracture. Some only involve the nasal bones, others involve the bones about the nose. Each case must be individually evaluated and a plan made. The type of reduction also depends on the type of fracture, degree of healing, and cooperation of the patient. In most competent anesthesiologists hands, general anesthesia carries little risk for the normal population.

Question: Re: Nasal fracture

Dear Dr. Bermant:
Last December my son was assaulted and kicked in the face and nose. The incident resulted in a nasal bone fracture. At the time of incident, his doctor stated that no treatment was necessary. Now almost a year later, he has some difficulty breathing and he has developed a slight "lump" on the side of his nose. Could this be the result of the injury to his nose? Can anything be done to correct the problem?
I would appreciate any advice. Thank you in advance for your help.

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Deformity after nasal fracture is not uncommon. Sometimes the deformity was part of the injury not being treated and not reduced at the time of injury. The nose even if perfectly aligned after the injury can deform during healing. Cartilage is fickle and can bend over time.

The breathing problem can be from the external bones or the septum being out of place. Treatment options depend on the deformity and are part of rhinoplasty and septal surgery. There are many pages on my website about such options as part of a preliminary education. Our patients continue that education during an in office consultation and evaluation. After defining the problem, the details of surgery can be individualized for the patient.

Question: Re: Nose guard

Hello..
I have broken my nose twice this year playing Basketball and Volleyball with an elbow to the face and a Ball to the nose.. I am looking for any info on where I can find a Guard like the one's basketball Prof's use while playing in the NBA.. I would like to protect this in the event it gets hit again.. any Suggestions would be helpful.. By the way My nose
is doing fine and I had a good DR. Looks and feels normal.. Thank you in advance for your time. T

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

There is a clear thermoplastic material (a plastic that softens when heated and strengthens on return to normal temperatures) that can be used as a facial protector. It is quite strong but the molding process requires a heat too high for the face to take directly. A mould of the face can be used to shape this plastic and not harm the skin. The plastic then needs to be fine fitted to the face. Hand therapists shape thermoplastic materials regularly but usually use lower temperature materials that are not as strong nor clear. I do not know of one who makes this facial guard nor the price.

Question: Re: Nasal Fracture

In a message you wrote:

Dear Dr. Bermant:
Last December, my son was assulted. He sustained a "nasal bone fracture". His doctors stated that no treatment was necessary. Now almost one year later, he has difficulty breathing out of one side and he also has developed a slight "lump" on the side of his nose near the tip. Is it possible that these symtoms could be the result of injuries he sustained in the assault? Can they be corrected? Your advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Nasal trauma can result in both external and internal deformities. Deformity can result in obstruction in air traveling through the nose. Rhinoplasty and septoplasty surgery can often address such nasal problems. The patient needs to be examined for specific recommendations and to discuss if the problems can be corrected. This is done during an in office examination and consultation.

Question: Re: nasal fracture

Dear Dr. Bermant,
I wrote to you several weeks ago, trying to decide if my 11 month old should have a closed reduction of his nasal fracture attempted. He did have the procedure on --. Immediately afterwards, the surgeon said it was a success, that he had been able to move the bones back. However, he had his follow up check yesterday, and the dr said the bones had migrated back some. Is this common? And, I am just wondering, if his nose does not straighten out and look better as he grows, what would be the earliest age you would consider doing an open reduction on a young child?
Thank you for your time,
Quinn's still worried MOM

Dr. Bermant responds:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Nasal bones can migrate after fracture reduction. This is more common in fractures treated late or those treated with lesser surgery (when the problem warranted a larger operation). Secondary surgery would involve a rhinoplasty, not another reduction. Each patient needs to be individually evaluated. There are advantages to waiting for nasal growth. Severe deflections causing significant deformity and breathing difficulties may require earlier intervention and possible revision after full growth.

Re: Question about a broken nose (Dr. Bermant)
Hi Dr.Bermant,

When I was about 3 years old, my sister was running with me and slammed me into a wall. It was a day later before my parents noticed the big egg on my face. They took me took to the doctor and it was already too late to fix my nose. Today at 26, I love my nose. But my parents keep telling me that if I would have not broken my nose, my nose would have been BIGGER in size. Is that true? I would think that by breaking my nose, my nose would have been much bigger. I wouldn't think that the nose would shrink in size and come out to be a really nice nose. Well in my opinion, I have a cute nose (A button nose). Would it shrink, if it was broken?


Thanks
T

Dr. Bermant answers:

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

In most cases nasal trauma does not shrink the nose. Nasal growth can be disturbed with trauma. This is hard to document or prove. In cases with severe trauma, the nose may not grow evenly or as large. Most people inherit their features. If your parents and children have the same noses, then you may be a case where trauma affected nasal size.
