A collapsed bridge or loss of nose height is how saddle nose is typically defined. This condition is often caused by trauma, illness, or genetic factors. In addition, sufferers of saddle nose have personal reasons for seeking treatment or surgery. Saddle nose can cause self-esteem issues and a fear of being in public. Everything from work to personal relationships can be affected by saddle nose.
Dr. Maurice M. Khosh can provide further insight on the condition as part of a consultation at his New York offices. Minimally-invasive treatment options are available, so surgery is not your only option. The main goals of treatment are to improve the aesthetics and functionality of the nose.
Saddle nose can cause breathing difficulties that impact all aspects of personal and work life. If you tend to breathe through your mouth, surgical repair of saddle nose may significantly improve.
Illicit drugs taken through the nose can wear away at structures in the nostrils and nasal passages. Saddle nose surgery can reverse the damage, allowing your nose to function normally. There are also aesthetic benefits of having a more natural-looking nose.
Nose Injury & Trauma
Perhaps the most common cause of saddle nose, injuries related to trauma, can leave more than a physical scar. The sufferer may lose self-confidence on top of dealing with inhibited breathing. With saddle nose surgery, you can begin to love yourself again in New York.
There are infections, including syphilis and leprosy, that can lead to saddle nose. Reconstructive nasal surgery will restore your nose to its natural appearance. In addition, Dr. Khosh provides a private and confidential space where patients can share without fear of judgment.
Rhinoplasty Reversal or Revision
Bad surgeries can damage the nose and internal structures. Thankfully, most of these surgeries are reversible or revisable. Patients who have had a poor experience in the past can count on the expertise of Dr. Maurice Khosh.
