Overlooked at KUmed,got an awful septo where he cut out bone on "nasal floor",face looks assymetrical,hair loss, still breathing issues,and whom & how in the world can I get this affordably addressed,let alone locally,if KU suspended me as a patient because of their own conflicting opionions and problems they overlooked? Any constuctive advice,or knowledge of someone I can see whom performs revisional repairs for misfortunate??

Revision Septoplasty

Corrective surgery can be performed to balance the asymmetry. Grafts may be necessary. Hair loss can be improved with kenalog injections.
