If the shot hit the front, as a rule, the nose becomes flattened, and "duck". A classic example is the famous actor Jean-Paul Belmondo, in his youth was engaged in Boxing and received such injury. In this case, the nasal bone split into several pieces (quantity depends on the force of impact) and shifted backward and downward, the nasal passages become Suginami and curved. As soon as possible (no later than weeks after the injury) to put the pieces in place. Otherwise, they will begin to coalesce, forming a callus. To correct the deformation will be much harder. Therefore, in no case do not tighten with a visit to the doctor. In the first days after a fracture, the shape of the nose can be restored.
If the blow fell on the side, broken only one nasal bone, and the second bends. Fracture of both bones occurs rarely, i.e. only when a very strong impact. If the blow came from below, in the most severe cases, the bone fragments can get into the brain, and it is dangerous to life. Put on a nose cold object, best if it is tightly knotted plastic bag with ice or cold water.
Can put a large piece of cheesecloth, folded in several layers and soaked in cold water. Injured person should provide full rest and as soon as possible to deliver in a health facility. All the necessary assistance he may have only ENT surgeon. Self-treatment at home is meaningless, and sometimes downright dangerous.
After surgery do not rush to leave the hospital, even if you feel well. The fact that the nasal cavity requires a minimum of a week to regularly clear from the resulting blood clots, etc. to Do it at home, it is hardly possible, besides, there is the risk to injure the septum. If this is not done, there is a risk of complications. So, if you want to quickly and safely cure a broken nose, be patient and stay in hospital for as much time as you need.
