A sunken nasal bridge or saddle nose deformity can affect your self-confidence. Whether you had an injury that created your nose shape or other complications caused the dip in your nasal bridge, it can have an odd appearance. Even minor saddle nose deformities can be significant to the individual. There are options for those with a slight saddle nose deformity to achieve a more balanced nose appearance without plastic surgery.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty for Saddle Nose Reshaping
Saddle nose repairs through surgery often use cartilage grafting to rebuild the height of the nasal bridge. For minor bridge deformities, it may be possible to achieve similar results using dermal filler injections. If the bridge is slightly concave, dermal filler injected in the right proportions can create a level, smooth bridge that appears more balanced and attractive.
Non-surgical saddle nose repair is an outpatient procedure, and it can be accomplished in less than an hour. Dr. Maurice Khosh is a dual board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in reshaping the nose and creating natural facial harmony. The first step in fixing your saddle nose deformity is a consultation with Dr. Khosh. He can examine your nose and recommend treatment options. Not everyone is a candidate for non-surgical treatment, but it may be possible if your deformity is minor and does not cause functional or breathing problems.
Immediate Aesthetic Results
One of the benefits of non-surgical nose reshaping for a saddle nose deformity is the almost immediate results. You can achieve your new nose shape in one short visit, and you will not need to take time off work or experience downtime after the procedure. While the results are almost instant, they are temporary. To maintain the results, you will need ongoing treatments. How often you will need treatment will depend on the type of dermal filler used, but usually at least once a year.
Non-surgical saddle nose repair can be a great way to “try on” a new look for your nose before opting for plastic surgery. Some patients use dermal fillers for years to create the nose shape they desire. If you want to explore non-surgical saddle nose treatment, contact us at the office of Dr. Maurice Khosh in NYC.
