Saddle nose can occur as the result of a sporting injury, accident, physical attack or even some severe infections. When the bridge of the nose collapses, appearance and function are affected to various degrees.
If you are embarrassed by the shape of your nose or can’t breathe freely, saddle nose repair is an option from Dr. Maurice M. Khosh. As a Double Board-Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Khosh is committed to providing his patients with effective solutions at his Park Avenue, NY offices.
Saddle Nose Aesthetics
There are few instances where saddle nose is not a clearly visible injury. The structure of the nose is typically damaged to such an extent that the bridge collapses and forms a saddle shape – hence the common name for this condition. Although repairing the nose will improve appearance, aesthetics are not the only reason to go through this procedure.
Every nose is different, as are the tissue and cavity structures that enable an individual to breathe effectively. In the course of making improvements that will restore facial balance and symmetry, a specialist plastic surgeon will also seek to correct structural problems that affect function. This is not always necessary; however, function should never be sacrificed for aesthetics.
Saddle Nose Functional Correction
The very fact that the bridge of the nose has collapsed will lead to some degree of breathing difficulty. Sufferers of saddle nose may also experience frequent or serious nasal infections. These issues are functional in nature and should be addressed as such. Dr. Khosh will use procedures and techniques that are best suited to the unique nasal anatomy of the patients to ensure optimal results.

Words can not express my gratitude for his amazing life-changing work.
I had a tonsillectomy and a Neck Lump removal done on the same day.
Everything that you ever heard or read about tonsillectomy, is a dramatic over-exaggeration of people who can NOT tolerate pain.
I was so ready for a long misery and stressful recovery... Pffttt , turned out to be a really easy experience.
Dr. Khosh did an amazing job!!! Also taking in to consideration that I had 2 surgeries performed on the same day. I was out walking my dogs on day 2. Day 3 Walking dogs, doing some shopping and cooking... day 4 5 and 6 you get the picture. 0 limitations, just listened to my body and didnt overwork myself.
Just want to tell anyone and everyone who is either thinking of or NEEDS to have adult tonsillectomy done - Please don't even think twice. You get a perfect dose of painkillers, and they can solve all your pain-needs.
Dr.Khosh has an amazing warm and friendly personality, with a heart of gold and superb skills.
Susan - my comforting shoulder, and Christine - always happy and positive to brighten your day. I am forever grateful .
