Who Should Consider Saddle Nose Deformity Correction?

Saddle nose deformity is a condition characterized by the collapse of the bridge of the nose, resulting in a flat, concave appearance that resembles the shape of a saddle. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including trauma, congenital issues, or previous surgeries. This nose deformity can have both functional and aesthetic implications, and correction may be necessary for individuals facing these challenges. Let’s explore who should consider saddle nose deformity correction and the potential benefits of the procedure.

Candidates for Saddle Nose Deformity Correction

One of the most common causes of saddle nose deformity is nasal trauma, such as a blow to the face or a nasal fracture. Individuals who have experienced traumatic injuries resulting in saddle nose deformity may be strong candidates for correction, as it can help restore both function and aesthetics. Other possible candidates for correction surgery include:

  • Congenital Saddle Nose: Some individuals are born with a saddle nose deformity due to genetic or developmental factors. For those experiencing breathing difficulties or aesthetic concerns, correction may be appropriate.
  • Nasal Surgery Complications: In some cases, individuals who have undergone previous nasal surgeries, such as rhinoplasty, may develop saddle nose deformities as a complication of those procedures. Revision rhinoplasty to address this issue can provide improved results.
  • Breathing Difficulties: Saddle nose deformity can lead to functional problems such as impaired breathing. Patients experiencing these difficulties may benefit from corrective surgery to restore proper nasal airflow and improve their quality of life.
  • Aesthetic Concerns: Beyond functional issues, many people with saddle nose deformities are unhappy with the appearance of their noses. Correcting the deformity can enhance facial harmony and self-esteem, making it an option for individuals seeking aesthetic improvements.

Saddle nose deformity correction is a highly customizable procedure, tailored to each individual’s unique needs. Dr. Maurice Khosh at the Saddle Nose Repair clinic in NYC works closely with patients to understand their goals and create a treatment plan that aligns with those objectives.

Potential Benefits of Saddle Nose Deformity Correction

One of the most significant advantages of saddle nose deformity correction is the potential for enhanced nasal function. Restoring the natural contour of the nose can improve airflow, making it easier to breathe through the nostrils. Correcting saddle nose deformity can also lead to a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance. It can help patients regain confidence and feel more comfortable with their overall look.

For those who have been struggling with breathing difficulties or aesthetic concerns due to saddle nose deformity, corrective surgery can significantly enhance their quality of life. Breathing more easily and feeling better about their appearance can lead to increased self-esteem and overall well-being.

Saddle nose deformity correction is a valuable option for individuals facing functional or aesthetic issues related to this nasal condition. Whether the deformity is the result of trauma, congenital factors, or complications from previous surgeries, correction can lead to improved breathing, enhanced facial aesthetics, and an overall higher quality of life.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

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.

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.
