What is Nasal Valve Collapse?
Nasal valve collapse is a term that refers to any weaknesses or narrowing of the nasal valves. Alterations in the structure of the nose that affect the nasal valve, can result in increased resistance due to narrowing. It can also block airflow and cause difficulty while breathing inward. Patients with nasal valve collapse may feel as if they have a clothespin on their nostrils, especially during physical activities.
How is Nasal Valve Collapse treated?
Nasal Valve Collapse is treated with LATERA. LATERA is an FDA approved nasal implant which provides support to the collapsing lateral nasal cartilage. LATERA helps patients breathe better by reducing nasal obstructive symptoms.

How does LATERA work and what can I expect?
LATERA is a simple procedure performed in our surgical suite here at Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics. At the start of procedure, topical anesthesia is applied for patient’s comfort. The implant is then inserted through a small inter-nasal incision. After the implant is inserted and the anesthesia wears off, the patient can return to non-strenuous activities. The procedure is short, quick and very effective. You can expect nasal obstruction symptoms to disappear and begin to breath better.
