Saddle Nose Deformity Due to Sarcoidosis

Although rare, some saddle nose deformities can be caused by sarcoidosis, a rare autoimmune disease. When damage is caused to the cartilage or bone in the nose structure from granulomas caused by sarcoidosis, the nasal bridge can collapse, causing the saddle nose deformity. If you have sarcoidosis that has deformed your nose shape, Dr. Maurice Khosh offers exceptional repairs for saddle nose deformities at his clinic in NYC.

Sarcoidosis can mimic relapsing polychondritis in attacking the nasal tissue and causing saddle nose deformities. Both diseases can cause granulomas or pockets of infection that damage tissues in the body, including the cartilage in the nose. When the cartilage in the septum is weakened over time, it may eventually collapse and create the saddle nose deformity, shortening the nose and rotating the nasal tip upward. The nasal bridge can collapse on its own or be susceptible to collapse with any type of nose trauma.

Repairs for Saddle Nose Caused by Sarcoidosis

Dr. Khosh specializes in nose reconstruction and rhinoplasty for those with saddle nose deformities. If sarcoidosis caused deterioration of the nasal structure, resulting in a nasal bridge collapse, Dr. Khosh will determine the best options for restoring support for the nasal bridge. Using the most advanced surgical techniques and his artistic skill, Dr. Khosh can use grafts and other methods to reconstruct the nasal bridge and reshape the nose for both function and aesthetics. For mild cases, there are non-surgical treatments that restore the shape of the nose.

Saddle nose deformities affect the self-confidence of the patient, impacting their quality of life. If you have suffered a nasal bridge collapse caused by sarcoidosis, Dr. Khosh is the facial plastic surgeon you want to perform your rhinoplasty procedure. Contact our clinic in Manhattan to schedule a consultation to discuss your treatment options for restoring the shape and function of your nose.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
