The mucous membranes in the nasal passages are capable of absorbing substances, including both illicit and prescribed drugs. When in the form of powder or vapor, these drugs are able to pass into the bloodstream through the nostrils.
Damage can occur as a result of taking drugs via the nasal passages. This typically happens when a habit becomes too frequent or a large amount of drugs are being taken each time. The result is often a condition known as “saddle nose deformity,” which can impact the appearance and functionality of the nose.
It is possible to have saddle nose repaired by a specialist plastic surgeon. Dr. Maurice Khosh offers access to procedures that will repair the functional and visible damage at his Manhattan, New York offices. As a double board-certified surgeon, you can rely on his understanding of nasal anatomy and skilled hands.
