Septoplasty unsuccessful. Any suggestions?

Functional issues with nasal breathing can be due to a variety of reasons and sometimes in a cumulative way. Septum is only one variable, internal and external nasal valves, and nasal mucousal disease for example are some the other significant factors. I recommend you to get a thorough evaluation by someone who has good experience with functional nasal surgery (septorhinoplsty).
