Saddle Nose Deformity after Septoplasty or Rhinoplasty
A complication of septoplasty or rhinoplasty is a saddle nose deformity. When there is a loss of too much septal cartilage or damage to the septum cartilage caused by surgical errors or complications, the nasal bridge can collapse as a result. This unfortunate complication can change the form and function of the patient’s nose, requiring additional surgery to repair. Dr. Maurice Khosh specializes in saddle nose repairs for his patients with deformities caused by septoplasty or rhinoplasty.
Septoplasty Complications Resulting in Saddle Nose Deformity
Septoplasty is a nasal surgery to address a deviated septum, chronic sinusitis and other sinus issues. This procedure is recommended when a deviated septum or other abnormalities cause an obstruction in the nasal passages. One of the risks and complications from septoplasty is damage to the septum or cartilage in the nose. A perforated septum, septal hematoma or infection can be complications of septoplasty, causing a weakened nasal structure that can lead to a bridge collapse.
Rhinoplasty Complications Resulting in Saddle Nose Deformity
Changing the shape of the nose through rhinoplasty has risks. If too much cartilage is removed, the nose structure becomes vulnerable to collapsing. An overreduction of a nasal hump can result in the nasal bridge concaving. If too much septal cartilage is removed to create a narrower nasal base, the nose bridge can saddle or sink in the middle section. Other possible complications are accidental perforations in the septum, hematomas or infections resulting from rhinoplasty that can weaken the nose structure, causing a pug nose or saddle nose deformity.

Words can not express my gratitude for his amazing life-changing work.
I had a tonsillectomy and a Neck Lump removal done on the same day.
Everything that you ever heard or read about tonsillectomy, is a dramatic over-exaggeration of people who can NOT tolerate pain.
I was so ready for a long misery and stressful recovery... Pffttt , turned out to be a really easy experience.
Dr. Khosh did an amazing job!!! Also taking in to consideration that I had 2 surgeries performed on the same day. I was out walking my dogs on day 2. Day 3 Walking dogs, doing some shopping and cooking... day 4 5 and 6 you get the picture. 0 limitations, just listened to my body and didnt overwork myself.
Just want to tell anyone and everyone who is either thinking of or NEEDS to have adult tonsillectomy done - Please don't even think twice. You get a perfect dose of painkillers, and they can solve all your pain-needs.
Dr.Khosh has an amazing warm and friendly personality, with a heart of gold and superb skills.
Susan - my comforting shoulder, and Christine - always happy and positive to brighten your day. I am forever grateful .
