A New York Winter Injury Can Result in a Saddle Nose Deformity

Woman Hiding Her Nose

The nose is largely made up of cartilage and bone, making it vulnerable to injury in an accident. During the colder months, you are more likely to damage your nose in a slip and fall accident. Permanent disfiguration is a potential outcome, so exercise caution when you are out socializing or visiting with relatives this holiday season.

There is also an increased risk of getting into a vehicular collision, which could result in a broken nose and other injuries. Adverse driving conditions are a common hazard during the winter months. Winter in New York routinely brings rain, cold winds, ice and snow. Even if you are a conscientious and careful driver, there is no guarantee that you won’t get into a crash.

Saddle Nose Injury

A saddle nose injury or deformity is so named because the associated structural damage resembles a horse saddle. The bridge of the nose is dipped; however, the nose may also take on a crooked appearance. This condition can exist at birth, develop due to a medical condition or result from trauma, such as impact in an accident.

If you are unhappy with the aesthetic or functional qualities of your nose, there are effective treatment options in New York. Saddle nose deformity largely impacts the appearance of the nose but sufferers may experience difficulty breathing, frequent nasal infections or a constant buildup of mucus.

Nasal Surgery Consultation

Dr. Maurice Khosh specializes in the treatment of saddle nose deformities, associated injuries and conditions. At his New York offices, Dr. Khosh understands that patients experience a range of health issues related to abnormal appearance and function of the nose. If you are suffering from confidence issues, a rhinoplasty could offer an effective solution.

Some patients are less concerned with appearances and more focused on the functions of the nose. When the nasal cartilage and bones are damaged, breathing and other bodily processes are either restricted or disrupted. There are secondary issues that can arise from impediments to breathing or constant nasal and sinus infections.

To learn how we can correct your saddle nose deformity, call Dr. Maurice Khosh at his New York offices today to schedule an exam and consultation.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
