Saddle Nose At Birth

Most often, a saddle nose deformity is associated with trauma to the nose. A direct hit to the nose during a car accident, a fall, or in boxing can cause the nose to become deformed. However, congenital malformations are also known causes of saddle nose. Congenital syphilis is syphilis that is present in utero and at birth and occurs when a child is born to a mother with syphilis. Untreated early syphilis infections can cause saddle nose deformity, among other poor pregnancy outcomes.

People who grow up with a saddle nose deformity often face difficulties. Children can be cruel in their teasing. Let’s face it, adults can be just as harsh in their judgments, often causing others to feel embarrassed, left out, or overlooked. The shape of a saddle nose can detract from the attractiveness of a person’s face, leading to feelings of depression. People with a saddle nose deformity also tend to suffer from functional breathing problems. These breathing problems tend to worsen with age if the nose’s structure is not corrected.

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.
