Do you regularly experience difficulty breathing through your nose and nothing seems to help? You may have nasal obstruction. Lakeside ENT is now offering the VivAer® procedure, a highly effective non-invasive solution that may offer you lasting relief from nasal obstruction.

Nasal obstruction is often caused by an anatomical blockage in the nose, hindering airflow. As a result, you may feel congested or “stuffy”. Home remedies and medications may offer temporary relief. It’s only when your nasal airway is opened that you can expect to find real, lasting relief.

Common symptoms of nasal obstruction:

  • Trouble breathing through your nose

  • Nasal congestion

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Difficulty breathing during physical exertion
