Has a Nasal Surgery Left Your Nose Sunken and Misshapen?

a patient looking into a mirror

The nose is a delicate facial feature that can suffer injury as the result of minimal trauma. Athletes, especially, are susceptible to suffering damage to the nose. However, there are also natural causes of nasal damage such as genetic conditions, infections and skin cancers.

What most people do not expect to suffer is the compromise of nasal structures from a surgery. Whether you undergo a surgical procedure for a health issue or cosmetic concerns, the ideal outcome is a nose that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Unfortunately, sometimes nasal surgeries can go wrong and lead to a condition known as a saddle nose deformity.

Nasal Cartilage Support

The nasal cartilage is pivotal in supporting the structures of the nose. The integrity of these structures impacts appearance, breathing and the maintenance of nasal fluids. When cartilage is damaged during a surgery, the nose may appear sunken, taking on the shape of a saddle.

Saddle nose makes it difficult for the nasal passages to perform their intended functions. You may experience disrupted sleep, difficulty breathing and an increase in nasal infections. All of these issues can create further strain and erosion of the cartilage.

Saddle Nose Repair

To improve the appearance of the nose, the nasal structures must be restored. If you have recently gone through a surgery and suspect that cartilage has been compromised, Dr. Dr. Maurice Khosh of Saddle Nose Repair can provide consultation at his NYC offices.

Compromised function of the nasal passages can impact your overall health. Apart from infections, the body will struggle to take in enough oxygen to fuel essential organs. By restoring the structures in the nose, Dr. Khosh can significantly improve your quality of life.

Nose Reconstruction Consultation

In order to fully assess your needs, Dr. Khosh would like to invite you to a saddle nose consultation. With the help of his compassionate NYC team, Dr. Khosh can offer solutions that restore both the appearance and function of your nose.

Call today to book your one-on-one place with one of the most accomplished saddle nose specialists in the country.

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!
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.

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.
