A sunken nose bridge is often called a “saddle nose” due to its depression on the nose profile and wide appearance from the frontal view. This depression on the bridge can make the tip of the nose appear to rise into a “pug nose” and is often caused by alterations to the nose structure. Repairing a saddle nose deformity requires extensive expertise in nasal reconstruction and cosmetic rhinoplasty, as it is one of the more difficult and complex nose surgeries.

Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, is an excellent choice for those considering saddle nose repair surgery. His background as a fellowship-trained, dual board certified facial plastic surgeon and respected facial reconstructive expert are a perfect fit for this complicated procedure. Dr. Rosenberg’s use of the most advanced techniques available can create a well-supported nasal bridge to address the concave shape and reshape the tip for the desired appearance.

What Causes Saddle Nose Deformities?

Anything that damages the nasal bridge cartilage can result in a saddle nose deformity. This can be a medical condition that weakens the cartilage in the nose. However, in most cases, it is caused by trauma or a previous nose surgery. Sports injuries, auto accidents and violence that results in impact to the nose can cause a saddle nose deformity. Rhinoplasty that removes too much cartilage can also result in the bridge collapsing and is one of the most common causes of a pug or saddle nose.

Repairing a saddle nose usually will require cartilage grafting or the use of implants to help restore the bridge. The tip of the nose may also require careful attention to create a desirable shape. Dr. Rosenberg’s expertise in nose shaping and reconstruction are invaluable in these surgeries, creating a new nose structure that is functional and aesthetically-pleasing for his patients.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
