Hang up the Gloves and Experience Facial Rejuvenation

Fighters often retire reluctantly, which results in bearing the scars of a long career. However, there comes a time when every warrior has to hang up those gloves. With no further threat of facial injuries, some athletes may opt for rejuvenating treatments.

Scar tissue splits easily due to blunt force trauma. For fighters, this means that old wounds never really get the time to properly heal. In many cases, visible injury sites are deliberately targeted to gain a tactical or points advantage. The resulting scars can become raised or ragged, making them stand out more.

Once a fighter retires, he or she may wish to address old injuries and scars. In most combat sports, the face is a prime target. If you need facial reconstruction or scar revision, now is the time to consult with Dr. Maurice Khosh at his New York offices.


Nose breaks are one of the most common injuries in the fighting game. Athletes involved in combat sports may experience breathing issues due to a broken nose. There are also issues like a saddle nose deformity that result in an undesirable aesthetic.

Dr. Maurice Khosh can perform rhinoplasty procedures to correct damage to the nose. Whether you are concerned about function or aesthetics, we have solutions in New York. Correcting nasal damage will restore the balance and symmetry between facial features.

Scar Revision

Some scars are more prominent than others. As a fighter, you may wish to leave behind the visible signs of your time in the ring. Some retired fighters feel like scars make them look thuggish or unapproachable. If your battle scars are getting in the way of pursuing new opportunities, Dr. Khosh offers effective revision surgeries.

Reducing the impact of scars can soften your facial aesthetics. You may find that interactions become easier in your personal and professional life. However, how you see yourself is the most important factor when considering scar revision.

Facial Reconstruction

Facial reconstruction can combine several treatments that are ideally suited to retired fighters. If you have suffered trauma to facial bones, tissues, muscles or skin, consider a New York Plastic surgery consultation.

Call the offices of Dr. Maurice Khosh if you are a retired fighter and would like to explore facial rejuvenation.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
