Hi. I'm a 43 year old male and had a func. rhinoplasty, to include: Turbinate reduction; correction of deviation both sides; bone spur removal; Allar Batten Graft placement; uvuloplasty; separate and reattach center septum to widen nostrils. That last one was fine initially, but once the stich came out, it collapsed back to original extra wide position. Now I have small nostrils again. Breathing is terrible, especially at night. Can anything be done to permanently keep the middle glued?
