Saddle Nose Treatment Options
Saddle nose deformities can change the appearance of your nose and impact the overall balance of your face. The structural changes inside the nose that cause a saddle nose deformity have a major effect on the shape of the nose, which is your central facial feature. Dr. Maurice Khosh of Saddle Nose Repair is an experienced facial plastic surgeon who specializes in treatments and repairs for saddle nose deformities at his clinic in New York City.
Severity of a Saddle Nose Deformity
Saddle nose deformities are due to changes in the anatomic structure of the nose. Primarily, the cartilage and bone that support the nasal bridge are compromised, allowing the bridge to collapse inward. Whether slight or severe, the nasal bridge is concaved, and noticeably changed when viewed from the face profile. With more severe nasal structural deterioration, other symptoms occur, including a shortened nose, an upward rotated nasal tip, breathing issues and a horizontal crease on the lower bridge. Treatment depends on the severity of the deformity. Dr. Khosh offers both surgical and non-surgical options, detailed on the pages below:
- Non-Surgical (Facial Filler Injections – Minor Deformity)
- Surgical (Cartilage Grafting – Major Deformity)
Changing the appearance of a saddle nose deformity is usually the primary concern of the patient. The collapse of the nasal structure can alter the appearance of the face, affecting a person’s self-confidence. Some people with these types of deformities can become depressed and isolated. Dr. Khosh has completed many saddle nose repairs that transformed the face of the patient, helping them regain their self-confidence and improve their quality of life.

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 .
