A blocked nose is a very common symptom in the adult population. Experts have noted that people with chronic blocked noses are increasing, especially in cities, due to air pollution. Smokers are also more frequently affected.

If you are suffering from a deviated nasal septum our ENT Surgeons are able to correct this via LAUP (Laser Assisted Uvuloplatoplasty), a minor Septo-Rhinoplasty procedure or Septoplasty.

The LAUP procedure is currently unavailable due to Covid 19 until September 2021.  The Private Clinic is only interested in ensuring the safety of its patients and it is for this reason we believe that this type of operation should be delayed for now. If you have issues with snoring and you are interested in the snoring operation please contact us and we will be able to add your details to our waiting list where we will then contact you as soon as we start the procedure again.

Symptoms of a blocked nose may include consistent dry mouth, headaches, impaired smell, and recurrent sinusitis. In some people the other unpleasant side effect is that they may suffer with snoring.

When your nose starts to block, the natural reaction is to start breathing through your mouth. The down side is that mouth breathing tends to shift the oxygen and carbon dioxide balance. The body, in trying to rectify this balance, causes the nasal passages to become even more constricted making the situation even worse.

The ‘Nasal Cycle’ always means that one side of the nose will be open, the other relatively blocked, from time to time and side to side during the day and night.
