How Dermal Fillers Can Fix a Mild Saddle Nose Deformity Today

A saddle nose deformity, characterized by a depression or collapse of the nasal bridge, can result from various causes, including trauma, previous nasal surgeries, or certain medical conditions. This condition not only affects the aesthetics of the nose but can also impact breathing and overall facial harmony. Dermal fillers have emerged as a non-surgical solution to address mild saddle nose deformities, providing a minimally invasive option for individuals seeking to restore the natural contours of their nasal bridge.

Immediate and Non-Surgical Correction

Dermal fillers offer the advantage of immediate correction for saddle nose deformities without the need for surgery. The procedure involves the injection of a soft tissue filler, commonly hyaluronic acid-based, into the depressed areas of the nasal bridge. This non-surgical approach allows for instant improvement in the appearance of the nose.

What Are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are commonly used for correcting saddle nose deformities. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body that provides hydration and volume to the skin. Fillers like Restylane or Juvederm, which are composed of HA, can be injected into the depressed areas of the nasal bridge to restore volume and create a smoother contour.

Dermal filler treatments for saddle nose deformities are highly customizable. The injections can be precisely targeted to the specific areas that require augmentation, allowing for a tailored and natural-looking result. This level of precision is particularly valuable in achieving symmetry and harmony with the surrounding facial features.

Minimized Downtime

Unlike surgical interventions for nasal deformities, dermal filler treatments involve minimal downtime. Patients can typically resume their daily activities shortly after the procedure. This makes filler injections a convenient option for those who wish to enhance the appearance of their nose without the extended recovery period associated with surgery.

Temporary Results with Options for Adjustment

HA fillers provide temporary results, typically lasting several months to a year, depending on the specific product used. This temporary nature allows individuals to assess the outcomes and make adjustments if needed. If a patient is dissatisfied with the initial results or wishes to maintain the correction, they can choose to undergo additional filler injections.

Adjunct to Surgical Rhinoplasty:

In some cases, dermal fillers can serve as an adjunct to surgical rhinoplasty procedures. They may be used to refine or fine-tune the results of surgery, addressing any residual asymmetry or irregularities. This combination approach allows for a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan.

Many individuals with saddle nose deformities who opt for dermal filler treatments express high levels of satisfaction with the results. The non-surgical nature of the procedure, along with its immediate impact and customizable nature, contributes to positive patient experiences.

While dermal fillers can effectively address the aesthetics of mild saddle nose deformities, more severe deformities may require rhinoplasty to restore the structure, function and appearance of the nose. A thorough assessment of the nasal anatomy and a detailed discussion of the patient’s goals will guide the treatment plan to achieve optimal and satisfying results.

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.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

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.
