Nasal fracture repair rhinoplasty corrects a broken bone in the nose after a facial trauma or injury. Patients generally see their primary care physician or an emergency care facility immediately after they suspect the nose is broken, but then it can be helpful to have a trained plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Steven White in Dallas, TX, to re-set and re-shape the nose for the best aesthetic results. Dr. White is a specialist in reconstructive and otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) surgery so he will perform a rhinoplasty that ensures treatment of the patient’s medical concerns and creating the most attractive physical result.

"For years I have had breathing problems. Dr. White quickly diagnosed the reason for my breathing issues. He performed surgery to reduce the size of the turbinates in my nose. He thoroughly explained the procedure so there was no doubt as to what would happen. The process went exactly as Dr. White explained. He and his staff were superb in making me comfortable with the process. After the surgery I was amazed at how much better I could breathe. Sinus infections are also a thing of the past. I can't thank Dr. White and his staff enough for making a real life change in my breathing. I highly recommend Dr. White and I recommend considering this procedure if the conditions warrants."- R.J. / Google / Sep 30, 2014
"Dr. Steven White has provided me with a wonderful feeling about my look. I am 6 days post my third procedure to complete my look. I had a receding hairline with an extremely high forehead, drooping brows, upper lids, one lid that drooped more than the other, puffiness under my lower lids, sagging jowls, deep lines in and around my nose and mouth. I undertook all these procedures to ensure I had a natural look, without the stretched look that I have seen on some cosmetic patients. Dr.White has perfected his surgeries to ensure the best results for any procedure he performs. I knew after the first surgery, that I would never allow another surgeon to perform a cosmetic procedure on me. He is attentive to every detail prior to surgery, during surgery, and after the procedure ensuring optimal results. His surgical results are truly amazing and he is dedicated to best practices in his field. With a new fresh look it is impossible not to smile with confidence: "Smile and the world smiles with you." Dr. White is the only cosmetic surgeon I would recommend to someone seeking to improve their appearance."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jan 16, 2015
"If you are researching plastic surgeons and are struggling to select the right one, look no further. Everything about Dr White, including his wonderful staff, made my experience of having a rhinoplasty / septoplasty one of the best things I've ever done in my life. I shopped around and visited with many different surgeons in the Dallas area, and while many of them have very good credentials and plenty of decent reviews, none of them even came close in comparison to Dr White. Let's just say, he had me at hello. He was so careful during the initial consultation with me, he spent over an hour just talking with me, looking at my nose, commenting on what he would do, discussing my fears and concerns, and educating me on the process as well as what I should look for if I were to choose another Dr which I thought was very cool. Additionally, the preparation that he puts into your surgery makes you feel like you are his only patient. He spent hours taking photographs of my nose, and when I asked him why he takes so many (over 300!), he said it's because he takes the best ones and puts them up in the operating room so he can make sure he is doing the best possible job to fix the things I don't like about my nose. I was very fearful about undergoing surgery (I have young kids and those fears do sink in about something happening on the operating table), I was fearful that the results would make me look fake or would completely change my appearance and I wouldn't be me anymore, and I was also fearful that the Dr would make a mistake and cut off my ability to breathe because I was having my nostrils made smaller and for some reason I thought this might effect my ability to breathe thru my nose. What became apparent very quickly was Dr White has done hundreds of nose jobs (both outside and inside the nose), and given he started his career as an ENT, he has about the best understanding of the anatomy of the nose than anyone. He also operates in a highly regarded hospital, and uses real anesthesiologists who know what they are doing to keep you safe during surgery. In the end, I couldn't have imagined a better result and my nose is beautiful, I feel beautiful for the first time in my life, and my breathing is actually BETTER than before the nose job because he worked his magic on the inside of my nose too. If you are considering any other doctor in the Dallas area, you are crazy. Don't do it - Dr White should be your first and last stop and you will be very pleased with the results. Dr White really cares about making his patients happy. One last thing, Dr White told me that 50% of the rhinoplasty procedures he does are revision surgeries. Now that should be evidence enough that he knows what he is doing! Don't go anywhere else or you could be in that group of people who are going back a second time and paying way more than the first time to fix the mistakes of a less experienced and qualified surgeon!!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jan 20, 2015
"I was very nervous about getting my nose done. I've wanted it done for a long time and wanted to find the right doctor to do it. When I found Dr. White I knew who was going to do my rhinoplasty! He is the nicest, most caring doctor I have ever been too, and really listens to what you have to say. I had a bump at the top of my nose and it was also crooked at the bottom. He made it look beautiful! It is now the most favorite feature on my face when it used to be what I absolutely hated! The recovery process went great, I barley had any swelling or bruising and it just keeps turning out better and better as it heals. It's only been 3 months since my surgery and it looks GREAT! I recommend Dr. White to anyone who wants ANY surgery done because, honestly he is the best and why would you want someone who isn't as good or as qualified as him to work on your body?"- Google User / Google / Jun 06, 2012
"I could not be more pleased with my overall experience with Dr. White! He sincerely cared not only about what I had to say as a patient, but my happiness as a person. The same goes for his office staff, they're great. Dr. White is definitely a perfectionist when it comes to his work, and I could not be happier with the outcome of my rhinoplasty. I had been considering one for years, and after I broke my nose, I decided to have the procedure done. I can finally breathe normally, my allergies are virtually gone, along with the bump that I used to have on my nose. I love it! The pain of the procedure and the recovery was minimal, and the hospital nurses could not have been more attentive to me afterwards. From my initial consultation to my follow-up visits, Dr. White was incredibly professional and kind, and I would recommend him to others without hesitation."- Google User / Google / Jun 06, 2012
Nasal fracture surgery repairs the bones of the nose that have been broken as well as any injuries to the cartilage or nasal septum. Dr. White will check for specific concerns, such as septal hematoma which can lead to a saddle nose deformity, or a septal deviation with a physical examination and if needed, an X-ray or CT scan. Once Dr. White and the patient have discussed what areas of the nose need to be treated, a nasal fracture repair rhinoplasty can be performed.
Rhinoplasty after a nasal fracture is best done within 2 weeks of the original injury, but Dr. White is still able to help patients who are past this point. Rhinoplasty for a nasal fracture can be performed in an accredited surgical facility with the patient under general anesthesia or in his office with local anesthetics, including numbing creams and numbing injections. Rhinoplasty after a nasal fracture is usually performed with closed approach. Dr. White will manually move the broken bone or bones back into the correct position without any incisions. After Dr. White has the nasal bones and cartilage in the correct place, a cast will be placed over the nose to keep the nose in place and protected. The cast is usually removed at the patient’s first follow up appointment, 1 week after the procedure.
