Infection-Related Saddle Nose Deformities

Sinus Infections

Saddle nose is a deformity in the nose that is characterized by the abnormality in the appearance of the nose. Because the bridge of the nose is collapsed, the nose looks as though it has caved in. A saddle nose can give a person a very unwanted appearance since the nose is the central feature of the face. Appropriate saddle nose treatment involves knowing the cause of the deformity and performing rhinoplasty.

One cause of saddle nose that tends to garner less attention than others is infection. Certain bacterial infections can cause lesions or tissue deterioration inside the nose structure. While most bacterial infections respond quickly to antibiotic treatment, if left untreated for a significant amount of time, these nasal infections can cause serious complications. Prolonged infections within the nasal cavity can attack the cartilage or tissues in the nose. This can cause the nasal bridge to weaken and lose its support, leading to a saddle nose deformity.

It is essential that you visit a doctor if you have a sinus infection or a lingering stuffy or congested nose. It is easy to think that these illnesses will go away on their own, but, in truth, these infections can last for years. If an infection lingers for an extended time, it will cause damage to the body. The delicate tissues in the nose can be vulnerable to certain infections, and lesions or ulcers inside the nose can cause permanent damage to the septum and nasal structure.

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!

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!

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. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
