Saddle nose – also known as nasal dorsum collapse, pug nose, or boxer’s nose – is a deformity of the nasal architecture. When someone has a saddle nose, there is a depression in the bridge of their nose, or dorsum. This depression causes the bridge to appear scooped like a saddle.
Having a saddle nose deformity or other nasal condition can make a person feel self-conscious about their appearance. Frequently, patients seek out plastic surgeons for a rhinoplasty procedure to correct their saddle nose.
Doctors Marcelo Ghersi and Jason Altman, both skilled plastic surgeons in the Miami area, have a long history of performing rhinoplasty surgeries and helping patients reach their aesthetic goals.
