When a patient comes into our office to discuss rhinoplasty surgery, they rarely have a full grasp of their exact nasal issue. Breathing problems, for example, could be caused by a number of things. The patient may be dealing with a nasal valve collapse, a narrowing of the internal or external nasal valves.

During corrective rhinoplasty, your plastic surgeon will make incisions as needed to allow access to the internal nasal architecture. They will alter the area, correcting the internal or external nasal valve collapse. Afterwards, they will use medical stitches to close the incision(s), and the surgery will be complete.
