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.
