A Guide to Nasal Valve Surgery

Posted by Amy Raval on Mar 28, 2019 1:42:00 PM

The inability to breathe easily can cause ongoing discomfort and frustration and it can rob you of sleep.

However, it is a chronic and persistent problem for some people, disrupting daily life as something much more than an annoyance. One common cause of obstructed breathing is nasal valve collapse. This condition can be a structural issue from birth, or it can result from damage due to injury or even previous surgery performed on the nose.

If a doctor’s certifications, trainings, and honors impress you, you will want to ask during your rhinoplasty consultation how long they have performed rhinoplasty procedures. Don’t assume that a greater more years or patients always means a better the procedure, healing process, and outcome. The best outcomes result from consistent practice.
