What Patients Are Saying About LATERA*

NANCY’S STORY

“Nasal sprays gave me minor relief, but
I felt like I was putting a band-aid on the situation… I
contacted an ENT specialist and they discovered I have a
deviated septum. Another thing they discovered is that I had
internal valve collapse… They inserted LATERA and that
prevented the valve collapse in my nose. I immediately
noticed a difference… I could breathe. I noticed
immediately, the increased airflow.”

MARCUS’S STORY^

"At this point in my life I was real
desperate. I tried many different options from nasal rinsing
to Breathe Right® strips, but it was pretty much
a short-term thing. I needed something that would work
longer and benefit me more in the long run…He told me about
this implant called LATERA that
would help increase my breathing
and I took it
right away… And it's really made a difference for me in
every aspect of my life."

CANDACE’S STORY

“The most appealing thing about LATERA
to me was my appearance wouldn’t really change…The very next
day I went out and saw people that I know, and nobody
noticed anything different.”
