Failed septoplasty

Hi
Iv struggled for years with a deviated septum, restricted airway and congestion so went to see an ENT. Last year I had septoplasty and revision septoplasty surgery but the problem is still not solved. My right nostril is still blocked as the septum is still deviated.
What is next for me, is rhinoplasty may be an option?
Regards

It really depends on your individual circumstances, and I would need to
examine your nose in person to provide you with the best advice. It is
possible there is a structural issue that is causing problems with your
breathing, combined with a residual deviated septum. You may be a
candidate for an open rhinoplasty to fix your deviated septum. There
is also the possibility of an external valve collapse. But only an exam can
tell for sure, and I would recommend that as the next step.
I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
