Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
What Should I Do About Complications After Rhinoplasty?
I had a Rhinoplasty procedure back on January last year and had to keep going back to my doctor for up to a year after since I was having breathing issues, a constant runny nose and still had some inflammation inside.
My doctor prescribed to me a couple different nasal sprays through the year and finally on January this year, he told me he was sorry and that he took too much cartilage out and would have to go back and do a graft of some sort to put cartilage back in to hold my nostrils up more since they were pinching shut when I inhaled.
He said he would take the cartilage out of the septum of my nose and it wouldn't be a problem. I had this done at the end of January this year since he offered to do it for free and I was hoping to finally breathe again.
After this 2nd surgery I don't think I will ever go under the knife again since it didn't make a difference as I am still sniffling and have a runny nose and don't feel like my breathing is better. Now I have this weird snore from a hole in my nose. Is there something else I can do to fix this breathing and runny nose issue? Is this normal or a doctor's error? I wish I had never done this and just wish I could breathe again. Tiff
Breathing Complications After Rhinoplasty
Sniffling and a runny nose are both related to allergies.
May want to seek a second opinion
