Surgery for Nasal Valve Collapse
Nasal valve collapse occurs due to weak or malformed nasal cartilage, scar tissue, trauma, inflammation, problems after nasal surgery, or the aging process. It is characterized by symptoms such as severe snoring, chronic congestion, bleeding, and trouble breathing. Dr. Frankel performs a variety of procedures tailored specifically for each patient’s anatomy to support and open the nasal valves. This results in an improved nasal airway.
