Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is very helpful when it comes to solving a person’s functional and aesthetic nasal issues. A nasal valve collapse is one example of an issue that can be both functional and aesthetic; as a result of it, the nasal airway is obstructed, and it can also cause the nose to appear misshapen.

Causes of a nasal valve collapse include scar tissue from a previous rhinoplasty and injury to the nose. When scar tissue thickens in unexpected ways, the internal nasal architecture becomes more crowded, making the nasal valves smaller.
