Identifying Saddle Nose Surgery Candidates 

Doctor Consultation

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.

Breathing Difficulties

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.

Drug Use

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.

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.
