How to Prepare for Non-Surgical Saddle Nose Repair

A saddle nose deformity can significantly impact your self-confidence about your appearance. Minor deformities can be treated without surgery if you are an ideal candidate. During this treatment, facial fillers are injected to help restore lost volume and height with the nasal bridge. There are a few things you can do in advance to help make this process easier and boost your outcome of success. Here are three tips to prepare for the day of your non-surgical saddle nose repair procedure.

Wear Comfortable Clothes
Make sure to wear comfortable clothes on the day of your non-surgical saddle nose repair procedure. Your nose may be sensitive and you could create damage by wearing shirts or hoodies that need to be pulled over the head. You may also want to choose slip-on shoes to prevent accidentally bumping your nose while bending over.

Keep in mind some nasal bleeding may occur, which can stain clothing. Wear glasses instead of contacts and leave valuable jewelry at home. Avoid makeup and other skincare products that can cause irritation during the procedure.

Avoid Inflammatory Foods and Beverages
Some foods can increase swelling after your non-surgical saddle repair procedure. Try to limit caffeine consumption and eating foods containing excess salt or sugar. Tobacco and alcohol can also interfere with healing. If you smoke within a few weeks of the procedure, your treatment may be delayed.

Consult with Your Specialist About Medications
Certain medications can cause complications with bleeding and swelling during non-surgical saddle repair. Your doctor may recommend stopping blood thinners and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs about a week before the procedure. Consult with your doctor if you are taking vitamins, herbal supplements or over-the-counter medications.

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!
Jackie C.

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.
