A nasal fracture can cause your nose to be crooked and alter your facial profile. Beyond altering the look of your nose and face, a nasal fracture can also create breathing problems.
About Nasal Fractures
Nasal injuries, including fractures, can be painful and cause both cosmetic and functional damage. The shape of the nose can be drastically altered, resulting in a change of appearance. After a nasal fracture, the nose can lean dramatically to one side and appear crooked.
When the nose shape is altered, it can make breathing difficult. When the septum is not straight, one side of the nose may become more narrowed and restrictive, impacting nasal breathing.
