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.
