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.
