The bridge of the nose is supported by the nasal bone, septum and sidewalls of the nose. When any of these structures become weak or damaged, the bridge of the nose can fall. When the nasal bridge collapses, it may resemble a horse’s saddle from the side due to the concave appearance. A saddle nose deformity can impact both the appearance and function of the nose. Our team at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan offers saddle nose rhinoplasty to correct this deformity and restore the shape and function of the nose.

Saddle nose deformities can be caused by a variety of nose afflictions. Anything that impacts the stability of the nose structure could result in a nasal bridge collapse. Some of the common causes of a saddle nose deformity include:

  • Trauma or impact to the nose
  • Weak cartilage from congenital or health issues
  • Deviated or perforated septum
  • Rhinoplasty complications
  • Extensive nasal drug use

Once the nasal bridge concaves, it can impact the nasal airways and breathing function. The appearance tends to become worse over time. The collapse of the bridge can upturn the nasal tip, causing a “pig nose” appearance.

Saddle Nose Correction

Saddle nose rhinoplasty is required to restore the nasal structure and shape. This can involve nose reconstruction with cartilage grafts and stents to add support to the nasal structure and open the collapsed nasal valves. Dr. Lesley Rabach at LM Medical NYC is a double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has the experience and skill to complete this complex procedure. Not only is Dr. Lesley able to restore the shape of the nose, but she can help improve the function as well.

If you have a saddle nose deformity and want to explore plastic surgery to reshape your nose, contact us at LM Medical NYC in Greenwich Village. Our team will schedule a consultation to discuss saddle nose rhinoplasty and the options available.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
