Saddle Nose Repair Plastic Surgery
Do you have a depression on the bridge of your nose that is very noticeable? Referred to as a “saddle nose,” a collapse of the cartilage in the bridge of the nose can cause a deformed nose and impact breathing function. From a profile view, the bridge can resemble a saddle, with the tip of the nose projecting upward from the depression.

Causes of Saddle Nose Deformities
There are many potential causes of a saddle nose deformity. It can be a result from trauma to the nose and is also called a “boxer’s nose” since it is commonly cause by a blow to the nose. There are other possible causes, including:
- Congenital or weak cartilage in the nose
- Previous rhinoplasty complications
- Medical conditions
- Cocaine or nasal drug abuse
