Fix Your Saddle Nose Deformity Without Surgery

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.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

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!

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.
