With a well done rhinoplasty you may actually decrease the incidence of colds and nasal congestion. Improving the nasal airway can diminish your symptoms. A complete nasal examination should be done as part of your consultation.

Based on your description it appears that you have some medical issues with your nose - this does not mean that you cannot have rhinoplasty but you should ideally have a specialist (i.e. facial plastic surgeon) evaluate the interior of the nose
