Both in the functional part (deviation of the septum, large turbinates) and in the aesthetic part (Rhinoplasty), only what is altered or that is desired to be modified by special techniques that take care of the tissues is intervened, each patient being a unique case.

Alterations of the structure of the nose that generate great difficulty in breathing can be corrected at any age; However, external aesthetic changes are not corrected before the age of 15 in women and 17 years on average in men.

The nostrils are the entrance door of the inspired air that is filtered, moistened and heated to the lungs. Its olfactory function allows us to differentiate approximately two hundred different odors from the atmosphere. The nose intervenes in the timbre of the voice due to the resonance chambers.

The most frequent causes are inflammatory: allergy disorders, viral infections or caused by bacteria such as Rhinitis and Sinusitis.

Nasal obstruction of only one side and it takes a long time (chronic) can be caused by alteration of the structure of the nose such as septum deviation, increase of the turbinates or tumors. If the obstruction also has malodorous secretion in children, it is necessary to check if there is a foreign body (pieces of paper, eraser, seeds).

Until adolescence, obstruction of the nose can occur in addition to other causes due to excessive growth of adenoids (adenoid hypertrophy). In most people the obstruction occurs due to the excessive growth of turbinates, deviation or loss of nose support or polyp type lesions.

If the process does not give way quickly, the Otolaryngologist specialist should be consulted, who according to the cause will suggest the appropriate treatment, either with medication or surgery.

In children its correction is essential to normalize the functioning of the nose and perform adequate breathing; This allows the normal growth of the structures of the face and mouth, not altering the functioning of the teeth and organs that allow the words to be pronounced.

In all patients the treatment of nasal obstruction affects their quality of life and prevents respiratory, dental and language complications.
