Broken nose or nasal fracture
The nose is the most commonly broken facial bone, and both bone or cartilage can be involved. A break not only impacts a person’s looks, but may also affect breathing.
A deviated septum can interfere with breathing and is caused when the bone or cartilage that divides your two nostrils is displaced.
Whether your nose has been deformed since birth or due to accident, illness or medical treatment, we have a range of procedures that can help improve the look and function of your nose.
Nasal passages may be obstructed by a variety of issues, from anatomy (or just how you’re built) to growths or injury. A variety of treatment options can be used to improve breathing.
Rhinitis is when the mucous membrane inside the nose is inflamed, either due to allergies or other causes such as an infection or outside irritants. It is important to identify the cause before determining the appropriate course of treatment.
Septal perforation or perforated septum
The tissue that separates the two sides of the nose can develop a hole for many reasons. This complex problem can be repaired to allow proper airflow.
Sinus problems, nasal congestion
Your nose and the sinus cavities in your face can be malformed or blocked to the point that you suffer from chronic sinus or breathing issues. Opening the drainage passageways can provide significant relief.
It is vital to find the reason for your snoring and whether it indicates sleep apnea, a life-threatening condition that causes individuals to stop breathing.
Turbinates are soft tissue-covered bony structures on the sides of the inner nose that help regulate airflow and also warm, filter and add moisture to the air as it is breathed in. When they become chronically inflamed, a patient may suffer ongoing nasal congestion.
