My daughter is scheduled for rhinoplasty/septoplasty and because of her breathing problems, her doctor has recommended a spreader graft.  Knowing her, she will panic if this makes her nose wider (which it sounds like it could).  I am nervous that she'll be upset with the result.  I just want it to help her breathing, but is this a possibility that it could widen it?  Has anyone had this done?  The doctor is also cauterizing her terbinates.  Thanks in advance.  Kathleen S.
