28 Apr What is Nasal Valve Repair?
Your nose is a prominent feature on your face and is often an underappreciated organ. While the nose helps you breathe, it can also affect a person’s confidence and overall appearance. Luckily, surgery is available that can help correct any cosmetic issues and malfunctions, and injuries to the nose. Nasal valve repair or nose reconstructive surgery is used for both reconstructive and cosmetic purposes.
The external and internal nasal valves are crucial for proper breathing, so when a malfunction or nasal valve collapse occurs, a person’s breathing may become constricted. Constricted breathing can cause a person to experience sinus pressure, difficulty breathing through the nose, congestion, sleep apnea, snoring, and congestion. If not treated, it can become a chronic issue that can lower a person’s quality of life. However, nasal valve repair surgery can help correct or reshape the anatomy of the inner nose to eliminate or improve symptoms and one’s appearance.
What Can Nasal Surgery Be Used For?
- Injury/trauma to the nose repair
- Treating the symptoms of nasal trauma
- Fixing a collapsed nasal valve (on one or both sides of the nose)
- To help improve breathing
- Correcting congenital disabilities
- Changing the size, shape, and angle of a person’s nose
- To help raise confidence levels and improve self-esteem
While there may be some quick solutions such as nasal strips, medications, nasal sprays, and steroids, none of these can compete with nasal valve surgery. Quick solutions are merely a band-aid and are short-lived. In comparison, nasal valve surgery is a relatively quick procedure that is performed under general anesthesia and has permanent results.
