PHOTOS: Before and After Saddlenose and Bridge Hump Rhinoplasty

by Thomas Lamperti

See before and after photos showing how Dr. Lamperti was able to repair a saddle nose deformity and bridge hump related to prior a nasal fracture.

This patient had broken her nose a few times in the past, including a from a cheerleading injury. She was left with a large bridge hump on her upper nose and cartilage collapse and a saddle nose deformity in her supratip area. Additionally, her septum was crooked making it chronically obstructed and difficult to breath through.

More commonly referred to as a boxer's nose, a saddle nose occurs when the supporting structure of the bridge of the nose collapses inward creating a depression or sunken in area.

I performed an open septo-rhinoplasty surgery to improve both the overall appearance of the nose while at the same time making it more functional and less blocked.
