Saddle Nose Repair
Do you have a nose that appears caved in? This may be saddle nose, a nasal condition caused by a collapse of cartilage. This deformity can cause issues with breathing and make you feel self-conscious. Saddle nose repair corrects this deformity so you can feel more confident about your appearance.
Surgical and Non-Surgical Saddle Nose Treatments
Saddle nose can be corrected by either surgical or non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Minor depressions on the nose can be leveled with facial filler injections. Cartilage grafting and rhinoplasty may be required for more severe deformities. For non-surgical treatments, you may be able to resume normal activities within a few days.
For surgical saddle nose treatment, swelling may be expected for the first few weeks following treatment. The surgeon may use grafts to restore and support the nasal structure. It may be several weeks before you may resume normal activities. Full recovery can take up to a year. You will be given special instructions after surgery to help you with the recovery process.
Ideal Saddle Nose Repair Candidates

This is necessary to make a prognosis and identify any issues that may interfere with recovery.
