Okay, why is it so important?

Lateral osteotomies are performed in most rhinoplasties. It's quite routine, as most surgeons know that it won't affect the airway to a significant degree.

But there are exceptions when osteotomies totally fuck up a nasal airway. The airway is thus unresponsive to modern structural grafting techniques. I want to know what anatomical indicators suggest a high risk patient.

Ie: shape and length of ascending process of maxilla, position of the anterior head of the inferior turbinate, etc etc

I assume it's a general concern on his part because he has gotten a rhinoplasty.
