There’s something about the holiday season that triggers a desire within us to make space for things we don’t have room for the rest of the year. We clear our calendars for holiday parties, family gatherings and time to linger by the fireplace a little longer than usual. Making special space to take a deep breath and slow down is important.
What if that literal deep breath is difficult to take? If this is true for you, it may be time to consider a nasal valve repair procedure. Your nasal valve is vital for proper and comfortable breathing. If your nasal valve has been compromised, it can also prevent you from taking a full breath. If it’s determined that your nasal valve has been injured or compromised in some way, you will need surgery by an expert nose surgery plastic surgeon such as Dr. Sanaz Harirchian, M.D.
A nasal valve repair surgery will allow you to breathe more freely. In addition to receiving breathing benefits, you may also receive the benefits of a more aesthetic nose. At times, a nasal valve that has collapsed can create your nose to collapse slightly in the middle third of your nose. If this is true for you, the repaired valve may actually eliminate that collapsed area and give you a better looking and more symmetric nose.
If you’re struggling with breathing during this holiday season, it may be due to a compromised nasal valve. Book your appointment with Dr. Sanaz Harirchian, M.D. to see if a nasal valve repair surgery is right for you.
