Is Your Past Staring You In the Face?

Everyone deserves the right to reinvent themselves. Updating your look, changing your career and relocating are all ways to get a fresh start and a new perspective on life. However, if a saddle nose affects you, you may struggle to rejuvenate your appearance. As a main feature of your face, a saddle nose is a prominent reminder of previous trauma.

What Caused Your Saddle Nose?

Your nasal deformity might have been caused by an injury during sports or a car accident. Constantly being reminded of the pain and distress you experienced is damaging to mental health. Experiencing trauma every time you look in the mirror undoubtedly lengthens your psychological recovery.

Infections such as syphilis or leprosy can damage the nasal bridge leading to the appearance of a saddle nose. Even if you have physically recovered from your illness, saddle nose is a longstanding complication. You may be embarrassed to explain why your nose is misshapen to new acquaintances, especially if this results from a sexually transmitted disease.

The mucous membranes of the nasal passage provide an effective way to administer certain drugs. Unfortunately, this is also true for some illicit drugs. In addition, the cartilage of the nose becomes damaged if exposed to chemicals continually or for a long time. As a result, people may assume that you have an ongoing illicit drug habit, and you may feel like you are being consistently judged. In addition, if you’re in recovery, it can be a trigger with emotional effects.

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!

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