What Is Nasal Obstruction Correction?

Nasal obstruction correction surgery is a surgical procedure that clears obstructions in the nasal passages, often resolving breathing problems caused by the nasal passages. The surgery is highly customizable; some patients only need a partial removal of enlarged tissues to resolve their breathing problems. The surgery involves making small incisions in the nostrils or across the skin between the nostrils (called the columella). Deviated septums are corrected and any enlarged nasal tissues are removed. Previous nasal fractures that have healed improperly are corrected if needed. The incisions are closed and the nose is dressed with gauze. Start to finish this surgery typically takes about an hour and is performed on an outpatient basis.

The obstruction may be caused by deviated septum, deviated nose, turbinate hypertrophy, nasal vestibular narrowing (stenosis) or a combination of above. Specific techniques and maneuvers are needed to correct the problem and improve nasal breathing. To read more about nasal obstruction correction, click here.
