In many cases, nasal breathing problems may be successfully treated with septoplasty and/or turbinate reduction. These procedures are performed completely inside of the nasal passages and generally do not change the external appearance of the nose. In many cases, these procedures may be performed in conjunction with a cosmetic rhinoplasty. There are some type of nasal breathing problems in which a functional rhinoplasty is needed to adequately improve airflow. In these cases, there is typically a need to strengthen the external structures of the nose in order to correct the problem. One of the more common examples of this is when the nasal side walls collapse with inspiration through the nose, a condition known as nasal valve collapse.
