Latera is a treatment approved for nasal blockage and breathing problems. In a simple in-office procedure, an absorbable implant is placed inside the nose to support the cartilage and allow the nose to stay open during breathing.
Good Candidates for Latera
Having an obstruction in a patient’s nasal airways can be a major source of discomfort and inconvenience. If you have a nasal obstruction, Latera treatments may be perfect for you.
This solution is minimally invasive and effective. It’s also quite safe. To check your compatibility with the procedure, try using Breathe Right strips overnight. If these strips help with breathing, Latera can be a long-lasting next step in your treatment.
To learn more about what Latera can do for breathing issues, patients will need to schedule a consultation. The visit will involve providing details about their medical history. Patients will need to answer questions about their medications, any pre-existing conditions, and any past procedures.
Patients will learn about the details of the treatment, including how they can prepare for it. If patients have questions about Latera, the consultation would be the best time to ask them.
Once the Latera treatment is done, patients can simply go right back to their daily activities. No long recovery period or downtime is required, only about one to two days of recovery.
Latera’s full results will be experienced in four to six weeks. The implant will be absorbed in time, and the capsule that forms around it will continue to maintain its results as it dissolves.
