When there are blockages in the nasal cavities, there may be breathing and sinus problems. There are a few different types of nasal obstructions that occur, impacting the function of the nose. If you have ongoing sinus problems or trouble breathing through your nose, you may have nasal obstructions that are impacting your nasal passages. Dr. Gary Linkov offers nasal obstruction treatment to improve your health at City Facial Plastics in NYC.

Types of Nasal Blockages

Nasal obstruction can be caused by injuries to the nose or medical conditions. When the nasal passages become partially or completely blocked, there may be discomfort and health issues. Breathing may be forced through your mouth, limiting your airways and causing snoring at night. Your sinuses may also have trouble draining. Many people with nasal obstructions experience sinus pain and headaches, as well as chronic sinus infections.

To treat nasal obstructions, you first need to know what is blocking your airways. Some of the common nasal blockage issues include:

  • Nasal polyps
  • Enlarged turbinates
  • Deviated septum
  • Nasal valve collapse

Any of these issues can cause an obstruction in the nasal passages. Treatment depends on the issue. Surgery or functional rhinoplasty may be needed to repair a deviated septum or nasal valve collapse. Nasal polyps and enlarged turbinates can be improved with medications and other treatments. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary. Dr. Gary Linkov evaluates nasal obstructions and determines whether nose surgery is needed or if another minimally-invasive treatment option is available.

If you have trouble breathing or chronic sinus issues due to a nasal obstruction, seek relief by contacting City Facial Plastics today. We will schedule a consultation appointment for you to meet with Dr. Linkov. He will discuss options for clearing your nasal passages for improved comfort and health.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!
