Surgical Complications That Can Cause Saddle Nose
Damage to the nose shape from previous nasal surgeries are a common reason for rhinoplasty, including saddle nose repairs. Surgical complications or errors can damage the nasal cartilage, weakening the structure of the nose. If you had complications from nasal surgery that resulted in a sunken nasal bridge, there are options to restore the natural shape of your nose. Dr. Maurice Khosh of Saddle Nose Repair specializes in saddle nose repairs at his clinic in NYC.
Although rare, one possible complication of common nasal surgery is a saddle nose deformity. This can occur for a variety of reasons. When cartilage is removed or damaged during the surgery, it can lead to structural instability. If the nasal structure is too weak, the bridge can begin to collapse in the middle third of the nose. This can leave a sunken dip in the bridge, a shortened length and an upturned nasal tip over time. These are the trademark attributes of a saddle nose deformity.
