Nasal Congestion Post-Op Rhinoplasty

Three years post-op rhinoplasty, my nasal congestion is increasing and I am now swallowing frequently and clearing throat activity is increasing. Voice is becoming hoarse. It is as though the nasal vault was over-corrected ... because when I separate the nasal chambers it is alleviated. The surgeon dismissed it (naturally) telling me to take anti-histamines. I do not know whether or not an ENT can help or I should request the surgeon to repair it.

I thought I would have to live with it but the secondary smptoms are disturbing and I use my voice for my living. Anyone have experience?
