The saddle nose deformity results from a disruption in the nose's integral support mechanisms. Reconstructive surgeons must not only reestablish facial aesthetic contours but also rebuild the nose's structural framework while preserving or restoring nasal function. The causes and the classification of saddle nose deformities are reviewed, and the preferred techniques of correction and reconstruction are illustrated.
