Collapsing of the nose upon inspiration can be caused from either congenital weakness of the cartilage or from surgical rhinoplasty where too much cartilage has been removed from the nose. The treatment for this condition will involve a spreader graft,and possible alar rim graft and even alar batten graft depending upon the degree of severity of the collapse.
If when I Attempt to Breathe Through my Nose, One Side of my Nose Flattens (I Cant Breathe Through my Nose), What Should I Do?
