Non-Surgical Saddle Nose Deformity Repair (Facial Filler Injections – Minor Deformity)
Some saddle nose deformities are slight, with only a minor depression of the nasal bridge. While it may be minor in comparison to more severe cases, it is usually not minor to the patient. A dip in the nasal bridge can affect the overall balance of the face. The nose can seem flat or concaved, detracting from other positive features. Dr. Maurice Khosh is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon who offers both surgical and non-surgical treatments to repair saddle nose deformities.
The first and key symptom of a saddle nose deformity is the collapse of the nasal bridge. While some people lose extensive amounts of cartilage and have a severe nasal collapse, others may only have a minor deformity. A perforated septum or weakened septum may be enough to allow the bridge to sink but not collapse completely. With minor saddle nose deformities, there are more options available for repair. Rhinoplasty is a permanent solution to raise the height of the bridge, but there are also non-surgical treatments available.
Dermal Fillers for Saddle Nose Correction
For those who want to correct a minor saddle nose deformity, Dr. Khosh offers non-surgical treatment. Certain facial fillers can replace lost volume and height on the nasal bridge, improving the appearance of the nose. Dermal filler injections are non-invasive and can be completed in an office visit. The results are immediate and can last for several months or longer. This is a temporary option to diminish the appearance of a saddle nose deformity. To maintain the results, additional injections must be used as needed.
Non-surgical saddle nose repairs are a cost-effective option, and they can be a temporary solution until surgery is completed. If you have a minor saddle nose deformity and want to explore the options available for repair, contact the office of Dr. Khosh in NYC to schedule an appointment.
