What to Know About Saddle Nose Surgery

Nose deformities can affect your appearance and self-confidence. If your nose has a scooped-out look, you may benefit from saddle nose surgery. There are many causes for this deformity that can be treated with surgical correction. Here’s what to know about the saddle nose surgery process.

Saddle Nose Consultation

Before you can have saddle nose surgery, you’ll need to meet with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. This gives the surgeon an opportunity to examine your nose and answer any questions you may have. The surgeon will determine if surgery is necessary or whether other treatment options may be more appropriate.

Saddle Nose Surgery

Depending on the cause and symptoms of the nose deformity, there is a range of surgical repair options that can be utilized. The majority of these surgical solutions involve providing and rebuilding structure to the nose. These solutions can be achieved by harvesting cartilage from other areas of the patient’s body or shaping existing cartilage. If you’re considering saddle nose surgery, consider finding a cosmetic surgeon who is highly experienced in cartilage harvesting.

Saddle Nose Surgery Recovery

Once your saddle nose surgery is complete, you can expect to take some time for recovery. Any activity that might result in the nose being hit or injured should be avoided. Swelling will gradually decrease over a few weeks. Full recovery can take up to a year. The surgeon will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions following your surgery.

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

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.
