Nose Surgery in Pompano Beach, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Nose injuries are typically caused by accidents or everyday activities. These injuries generally involve swelling, bruising, pain whether the nose is broken or not. Commonly, nose injuries can be resolved by applying ice to decrease swelling and over-the-counter medication to reduce pain. However, if you have any of these symptoms, you should call Dr. Lapco’s office as soon as possible:
- Persistent nosebleeds or drainage
- A broken nose
- Punctured skin on the nose
- Bridge of your nose collapses, which leads to a hole in your septum
- Difficulty breathing
Dr. Lapco will treat most nose fractures with a combination of medication, decongestants, and maybe a nose splint. A broken nose will need to be put back into place once swelling decreases, and Dr. Lapco may prescribe antibiotics to decrease your chance of infection.
If you have injured your nose and need medical attention, please contact Dr. Lapco’s office today to set up an appointment. Dr. Lapco’s Pompano Beach office is located in Broward County just 10 miles from Coral Springs and 12 miles from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
