Can Aggressive Deprojection of a Nasal Tip Result in Changed Airflow Patterns?
It has been a few years after my rhinoplasty/Inf. submucosal turbinate reduction and begun to experience breathing difficulties over the years.I have seen many ENT's which say the turbinates look to be in good shape.However I am still experiencing dry nose and major change in air flow dynamics.I was wondering if the tip deprojection part of the rhinoplasty could have displaced the inferior turbinate in relation to the nasal valve thus causing a change in airfow. If so, how could this be fixed?
