Breathing through your nose should be easy. When it's not, it may be time to see an ear, nose, throat specialist for relief.

If you have constant nasal obstruction that isn't responding to medical treatment, you may be a good candidate for turbinoplasty. This outpatient surgical procedure shrinks excessive swelling inside the nose, which can cause difficulty breathing.

Otolaryngologist Dr. Matthew Connor, performs this procedure at Tallahassee ENT.

"People generally have very good results," Dr. Connor said. "Normally they'll feel the full benefit of surgery within a month."
