Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Fractured nose. The face of a young boy with black eyes and a bruised forehead caused by fracture of the nasal bone. The nasal bone is just under the bridge of the nose, most of the nose being made of a soft connective tissue called cartilage. Blows to the face can fracture the bone and displace the cartilage, causing pain and tenderness for about three weeks after the injury. Black eyes occur because the tissue around the eyes is particularly loose and transparent, and shows up blood from damaged capillaries. Treatment involves resetting the displaced bridge under anaesthetic, either before swelling starts or after it has subsided.
