Do I have a deviated septum following Rhinoplasty? (photos)

Nasal obstruction after rhinoplasty
You should be evaluated by a facial plastic surgeon who performs a nasal endoscopy as part of the exam to assess the nasal cavities. Without an examination by a rhinoplasty expert, it is impossible to determine what the cause of your nasal obstruction is. It could be due to a residual septal deviation, external nasal valve collapse, internal nasal valve collapse, inferior turbinate hypertrophy, etc. Best wishes!

Hello,Although difficult to tell without an examination, based on what I can see on your photograph, you may have a deviation of the bottom part of the septum. If this is the case, breathing problems can be caused by this. I would recommend seeking the advice of your surgeon as he is in the best position to help you.Regards,
