Manifestations of Saddle Nose Deformity
Saddle nose deformities range from mild to severe, depending on the amount of damage to the nasal structure. For mild cases, a slight depression of the nasal bridge can be noticed from the profile view of the nose. Severe cases include more noticeable deformities that alter the shape and function of the nose. Repairing a saddle nose deformity is different for each patient, depending on what manifestations they have and their desired alterations. Dr. Maurice Khosh of Saddle Nose Repair understands the different components of a saddle nose deformity and how to effectively repair it to restore the shape and function of the patient’s nose.
Symptoms of a Pug, Boxer’s or Saddle Nose Deformity
There are many different causes of saddle nose deformities, from nose trauma and previous surgeries to infections and diseases. The extent of damage to the nose structure determines how the symptoms are manifested. When there is severe septum and dorsum damage, the entire upper nose can collapse and affect the bridge, nasal tip and breathing function. To repair saddle nose deformities, patients may need to have one or more of the following symptoms addressed:
- Collapse of the Cartilaginous Bridge of the Nose
- Upward Rotation of the Nasal Tip
- Breathing Obstruction
- Visible Horizontal Crease Over the Lower Part of Nose
