Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Broken nose. Elderly woman with a fractured nose. There is swelling and blood over the nasal bridge. A broken nose is a common injury that can lead to deformity. Corrective surgery may be required to reset the nose. If the nasal septum (wall dividing nostrils) is displaced, breathing may be difficult or noisy. Usually the nose is reset before the swelling has started, or when it has subsided (about 10 days after the injury). The nasal bridge can be reshaped under a local anaesthetic; usually a general anaesthetic is needed. A plaster splint can protect the nose while it is healing. A broken nose is painful and remains tender for 3 weeks.
