Saddle nose repair surgery offers a transformative solution for individuals suffering from saddle nose deformities, which can significantly impact both nasal function and overall health. A saddle nose deformity occurs when there is a collapse or depression of the nasal bridge, resulting in a characteristic saddle-like appearance. This condition can be congenital, resulting from trauma, or as a complication of previous nasal surgeries, and it often leads to a range of breathing and respiratory issues that affect an individual’s quality of life. At Saddle Nose Repair, Dr. Maurice Khosh offers repair for saddle nose deformities to improve nasal function, aesthetics and overall health for his patients.

Saddle Nose Deformities and Breathing Issues

One of the primary concerns associated with saddle nose deformities is the impairment of nasal airflow, which can lead to difficulty breathing through the nose. When the nasal bridge is compromised, it can obstruct the nasal passages, causing chronic congestion, snoring, and difficulty breathing, especially during physical exertion or sleep. This can result in frequent interruptions in sleep patterns, leading to daytime fatigue, irritability, and diminished cognitive function. Furthermore, impaired nasal breathing can contribute to mouth breathing, which can increase the risk of dental problems, dry mouth and throat irritation.

Respiratory Conditions Related to Saddle Nose

In addition to breathing difficulties, saddle nose deformities can also impact the overall health of the respiratory system. The nasal passages play a crucial role in filtering, humidifying and warming the air we breathe, helping to protect the lungs from irritants, allergens and pathogens. When nasal airflow is compromised due to a saddle nose deformity, the respiratory system becomes more susceptible to infections, respiratory illnesses, and exacerbations of pre-existing conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Moreover, inadequate nasal breathing can lead to decreased oxygen intake, which can negatively impact cardiovascular health and exacerbate conditions such as high blood pressure and heart disease.

Saddle Nose Repair Rhinoplasty

Saddle nose repair surgery, also known as nasal reconstruction or rhinoplasty, aims to restore the structure and function of the nasal bridge, improving nasal airflow and alleviating breathing difficulties. During the procedure, Dr. Maurice Khosh, a dual-board certified plastic surgeon, carefully reshapes and rebuilds the nasal framework using cartilage grafts, implants or other tissue substitutes to correct the saddle-like depression and restore proper nasal anatomy. By addressing the underlying structural issues, saddle nose repair surgery not only improves nasal aesthetics but also enhances nasal function, allowing for better airflow and respiratory health.

Following saddle nose repair surgery, patients typically experience a significant improvement in nasal breathing, reduced congestion and enhanced overall well-being. With restored nasal function, individuals can enjoy better sleep quality, increased energy levels and improved cognitive function. Furthermore, by optimizing respiratory health, saddle nose repair surgery can help reduce the risk of respiratory infections, alleviate symptoms of underlying respiratory conditions and promote better cardiovascular health.

Saddle nose repair surgery offers individuals suffering from saddle nose deformities the opportunity to enjoy better health and quality of life by addressing breathing and respiratory issues associated with this condition. By restoring nasal function and improving airflow, saddle nose repair surgery can alleviate symptoms such as congestion, snoring and difficulty breathing, allowing individuals to breathe more easily and sleep more soundly. Saddle nose repair surgery can provide transformative results that enhance both nasal aesthetics and overall respiratory health.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 55 reviews

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!
Jackie C.

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.

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.
