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. For aesthetic and health reasons, many people with a saddle nose want this repaired. Dr. Rousso can offer reconstruction of the bridge to restore the form and function of the nose at his clinic in NYC.

Repairing a saddle nose deformity is a complex procedure that requires the expertise of an experienced facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Rousso is one of the leading rhinoplasty surgeons in NYC, as well as a respected facial reconstructive surgeon. His knowledge and skill in the most advanced techniques for reforming and reconstructing the nasal bridge are put to effective use in repairing the functionality of the nose in saddle nose deformities. When paired with his eye for facial aesthetics and artistry, Dr. Rousso can create a new nose that is beautiful and balanced within the facial features while correcting any functional issues.

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

Regardless of the cause of saddle nose deformity, there are solutions to improve the appearance and function of the nose. Contact the office of Dr. Rousso to book an appointment to learn about the surgical options to repair your saddle nose.
