Non-Surgical Saddle Nose Repair

Non Surgical Procedures

Saddle nose has different degrees of severity. Many patients have a severe disintegration of cartilage and complete collapse of the bridge of the nose. For other patients, the indentation is not as pronounced. However, the nose is very important to your appearance. A flat or concave spot along the bridge of the nose can change the way someone looks. It can make you self-conscious, interfere with how eyeglasses fit and affect your breathing. For minor saddle nose repair, there is a non-surgical option.

What Causes Saddle Nose?

Trauma, infections and autoimmune disorders frequently cause saddle nose. It is also associated with overuse of nasal sprays or drug use. Sometimes, inherited genetic factors are the root cause. A perforated septum or other small internal deformity can cause weakened cartilage. The nose will have a depression in the nasal bridge. Smaller indentations like this may benefit from non-surgical treatment if you do not want to undergo rhinoplasty.

Treatment of Minor Saddle Nose Repair

If you are not ready for rhinoplasty, you can achieve temporary results with dermal fillers. Lasting for a few months, fillers are a non-invasive way to achieve immediate results. The filler is injected into the concave area, leveling out the bridge of the nose. This creates a balanced, proportionate look for the nose and face. Over time, the fillers will dissolve. The depression of the nasal bridge will return. You will need additional injections to correct the saddle nose again.

Rhinoplasty Is a Permanent Solution

Rhinoplasty is the only permanent solution for raising the bridge of the nose. Saddle nose repairs are different from cosmetic procedures used to shape the size of the nose. Saddle nose rhinoplasty rebuilds the nose by using cartilage from another area. The cartilage is grafted on and raises the concave area of the nose with an entirely new nasal structure. Once the structure is rebuilt, the nose can be reshaped for a natural, balanced appearance.

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.

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.
