After lots of trauma, pressure, or drugs, can a nose collapse? If the breathing is obstructed or difficult, or the nostrils close/passageways swell up during inspiration, is this irreversible? I can’t imagine a surgery would help such a damaged nose
A: Nasal collapse is a real entity
Nasal collapse is a real entity. Obtaining a thorough medical history and performing a complete nasal examination will delineate the anatomy that predisposes to post-surgical collapse and nasal airway problems. Many effective surgical techniques exist to manage both entities that are of concern to you. I suggest you meet with a reputable nasal surgeon to have a consultation specific to your needs.
