What is a Fractured Cheekbone?

Description of the condition

A fractured cheekbone occurs when the bone in the face is broken or shattered due to injury or impact. This can be a serious condition that requires medical attention.


  • Open fracture: when the bone penetrates through the skin
  • Closed fracture: when the skin remains intact


Symptoms of a fractured cheekbone may include swelling, severe pain, bleeding from the mouth or nose, changes in the shape of the face.


A fractured cheekbone usually occurs due to injury, accidents, a blow to the face, or a fall.


Diagnosis is done through X-ray, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).


Treatment for a fractured cheekbone includes wearing immobilizing medical devices, surgical intervention to restore the bone, and the use of pain relievers.


To prevent a fractured cheekbone, it is recommended to wear protective headgear when engaging in contact sports, observe safety measures during active leisure and work.


An orthopedist, traumatologist, or surgeon specializing in the treatment of facial bone injuries may be involved in the diagnosis and treatment of a fractured cheekbone.
