Nasal Obstruction

Are you experiencing the following symptoms?

  • Nasal blockage or obstruction
  • Trouble breathing through your nose

  • Unable to get enough air through your nose during exercise or exertion

More than 20 million Americans1 are estimated to suffer from nasal airway obstruction, which limits airflow through the nose with significant quality-of-life consequences.2

Take a simple test to evaluate what could be causing your Nasal Obstruction.



The LATERA Absorbable Nasal Implant is used to support upper and lower lateral cartilage in your nose. It is placed inside the lateral (side) wall of the nose to support the cartilage, reducing nasal airway obstruction symptoms and helping patients breathe better.6,7 The implant material, which absorbs over a period of approximately 18 months, has an extensive history of use in a variety of medical applications. Talk to your doctor to find out if LATERA could be right for you.

What Patients Are Saying About LATERA*


“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.”


“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.”


“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.”
