Doctor Answers 1
Cartilage and septoplasty
- After 5 months, the problem should not get worse
- This issue can be fixed with a little cartilage grafting to fill in the depression
- Alternatively, you can try some filler injections for results without surgery (if your breathing is OK)
- You just have to make sure that your breathing is not worsening over time
