I had rhinoplasty about 11 months ago. I got my deviated septum fixed, my nose straightened (although, I'm not certain it is straight as it looks crooked in pictures), a hump removed, and the tip pulled in to make the overall size smaller.... I still cannot breathe AT ALL through my nose, only when it is lifted. A hump appeared on the left side soon after, and has not gone down . The doctor says it is cartilage but will not explain how it got there. I am not sure what I should do. Help please!

Nasal Obstruction and Hump 11 Months after Rhinoplasty
You have been patient, waiting 11 months after surgery to evaluate your result. If your surgeon does not address your concerns, get a second opinion. Consult with a physician who is experienced in revision rhinoplasties.
