The internal and external nasal valves are crucial for maintaining open nasal passages. When the nasal valves are damaged or ineffective, the nasal passages can collapse, impacting breathing, sinus health and nose appearance. Dr. Ali Charafeddine at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute offers nasal valve repair surgery to open collapsed nasal passages and restore a balanced nose appearance at our medical center in Miami.
Nasal valve collapse can be caused by a variety of issues. Some individuals are born with congenital defects to their nasal valves, resulting in ongoing breathing, snoring and sinus health issues. More commonly, the nasal valves are damaged or deteriorate over time. Trauma to the nose can damage the nasal valves. Damaged nasal cartilage and valves can be a complication of rhinoplasty, or nose surgery. Even aging can lead to degenerative issues that cause nasal valve closure. Whatever the cause, collapsed nasal valves can result in a misshapen nose that does not function correctly.
