Preparing for Your Saddle Nose Repair Consultation

header broken nose repair

If you suffer from a saddle nose deformity and have made the decision to explore repair options, you are embarking on a life-changing journey. Those with saddle nose deformities often experience many negative effects from the collapse of their nasal structure. People with this nose disfigurement often encounter a loss of self-confidence, breathing problems and depression. Making that first step to consult with a facial plastic surgeon can be frightening, but it can also be one of the most important decisions of your life. Here is what you need to know about preparing to meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss your saddle nose repair.

What Are Your Expectations?

You know you want to repair the saddle nose deformity, but it is important to clarify your expectations before you talk to your plastic surgeon. How much time can you devote to recovery? Do you want your nose to look like it did before the deformity occurred, or are there other changes to your nose you want to consider? Do you have breathing issues you want resolved? What is your budget? You need to decide what you want to accomplish from the repair in order to know what questions to ask. It is important for you and your plastic surgeon to be on the same page with meeting your expectations.

Find Pictures of Your Nose Pre-Saddle Nose Deformity

Bring pictures of you that show how you looked before your saddle nose deformity occurred. Try to find pictures that are taken from different angles. A profile picture often shows the original bridge shape best. This is important for the surgeon as a reference point on the desired shape of the nose after the repair is completed.

Choosing Your Plastic Surgeon

Saddle nose repairs are a type of rhinoplasty, but they are more complex than a typical “nose job.” Saddle nose repairs require reconstruction of the nose, as it is not just being reshaped for cosmetic purposes. You want a highly skilled facial plastic surgeon who specializes in this specific area of rhinoplasty and nose reconstruction. Take the time to vet and choose an experienced saddle nose repair plastic surgeon, someone with extensive credentials in the field like Dr. Maurice Khosh.

If you are ready to explore repairing your saddle nose deformity, you will not find another facial plastic surgeon more suited to complete your procedure than Dr. Khosh. Contact our clinic in NYC to schedule a consultation with Dr. Khosh. Make sure to come prepared to discuss your expectations. You will get answers to your questions from one of the top facial plastic surgeons, specializing in saddle nose repairs.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 55 reviews

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.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
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.
