Nasal blockage after rhinoplasty
there are multiple reasons to experience difficulty breathing after rhinoplasty. It could be issues with your septum, the nasal sidewall, allergies, enlarged turbinates, etc. In order to determine the cause for the nasal blockage, I would make an appointment to see your rhinoplasty surgeon for a proper physical exam.

Thanks your question and sorry to hear you are having this problem. There are multiple factors that contribute to difficulty breathing after rhinoplasty. A few possible issues is deviation of a septum, nasal valve collapse (weakening of cartilages that support the nose) and allergies/inflammation. First step would be to see your surgeon and have them evaluate the inside of your nose. Good luck!
