Congestion and runny Nose after Septorhinoplasty
Hi,Congestion and rhinorrhea (runny nose) after a septorhinoplasty is not uncommon. However to be having this problem 4 months out is quite unusual. Especially unusual if you didn't have nasal congestion or allergies before the operation. Typically this procedure will improve your nasal breathing and runny nose. I would consider having it examined and scoped to ensure nothing serious is going on. Hope this helps!--Dr. Hershcovitch
