Hi doctor,

My nephew is 3 and a half years old. He fell from the bed and hurt his nose around 7 or 8 months back. Now, as the doctors have said, his bone there is moving in the wrong direction, that is towards inside. What is the best course of action for him? Should he go under the knife? I am pleased for your advice.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.


The Probable causes:

He has got his nasal septal cartilage fractured and due to that there is misalignment of the septum.

You need to consult an otorhinolaryngologist for evaluation or you may also go for plastic and reconstructive cosmetic surgeon for better results.

Treatment plan:

It is not like going under the knife. It is very sophisticated procedure and is done with an endoscope and is very successfully done in a matter of minutes with minimum cut and patient can come home after 40 minutes of surgery.
