Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
I Have a Narrow Middle Third of Nose, and Pinched Look. How Come I Can Breathe Only out of the Side That is Narrower? (photo)
I have had two previous rhinoplasties. I am generally happy with the look, however I have breathing problems out my left-hand side. Incidentally, the left hand side is less pinched and has a fuller middle third. The right hand side is narrower and more pinched, yet I can breathe better out of it. The specialist I saw recommended spreader grafts, warning that the middle third may look wider, but does this make sense given the fact I can breathe out of the side which looks more collapsed?
