Latera is a minimally invasive alternative to rhinoplasty for patients with nostril collapse with inspiration. This is called dynamic nasal valve collapse and is a result of weakened cartilages in the side of your nose. Breathing in creates a negative pressure in the nostril which the narrows the nostril. The nose cartilage needs to resist this pressure to keep your nose open, but if it is not strong enough, the nostril falls inward and blocks airflow.

"Like most people I was worried about an unnatural look after having plastic surgery, but the subtle changes that Dr. Compton provided, made a big difference in what I saw in the mirror. I have more confidence now as I am no longer thinking about my problem areas. I am very happy with the outcome, thank you Dr. Compton."
