I just had nose surgery in february for turbinates, didnt do anything for me, went to see another nose doctor who refrreed me to another nose doctor who referred me yesterday to a plastic surgeon who cannot help me, everyone says I need an external valve calapse rhinoplasty procedure… I am stuffed up 24/7 and just want to be able to breath normal again… I am a healthy 56 year old woman, no allergies, etc… do you do this kind of a procedure or can you refer me to one???
I would be happy to see and examine you and see what may help you. The nose is a complex structure and there are may places in the nose that can increase resistance to airflow. The turbinates are just one of those internal structures. Internal or external valve collapse can also make breathing difficult. Please call my office in Virginia – 703-481-0002or Chevy Chase Maryland – 301-222-2020 and set up a consult.
