Saddle Nose and Healthy Breathing

Woman Smelling Flower

It is clinically proven that breathing through the nose is generally healthier than breathing through the mouth. For some children and adults, chronic nasal conditions lead to the latter becoming the primary method of getting oxygen to the lungs.

Excessive mouth breathing typically results from respiratory infections or nasal deformities. While most viral and bacterial infections are easily treated, structural issues require a more advanced approach. Saddle nose is a condition that can impact the structure and function of the nose. Repair is an option available from Dr. Khosh at his NYC offices.

Nose Breathing Benefits

The nostrils are lined with hairs that perform the function of trapping small particles such as pollen and pathogen, preventing them from entering the throat. The air that is breathed through the nasal passages is also humidified, which increases lung efficiency. Additionally, nitric oxide is produced in the nose, strengthening the cardiovascular and immune systems.

Moderate to severe cases of saddle nose deformity can impact the ability to breathe through the nose. Sufferers of this condition will therefore breathe through the mouth, which decreases quality of oxygen intake. If you are suffering from poor health and nasal abnormalities, saddle nose may be the underlying cause.

Dr. Khosh can perform an examination of the structure and function of your nose. It is important to establish if your abnormalities are causing breathing difficulties.

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!

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.
