I have scheduled a long awaited rhinoplasty and I am quite excited. I have developed some seasonal allergies and worry that I cannot go through with my plans. Are runny noses a problem?
A runny nose is not a problem and in fact, turbinate reduction or septoplasty may help improve your nasal airway and help improve the allergies although allergies are truly medical conditions that require medications, allergy shot treatments or nasal steroids to improve or control. As long as you have been seen by an ENT or Allergist and you do not have severe Sinus disease or other causes of a runny nose then you should be OK for a Rhinoplasty.
