I have had 3 sinus surgeries to open up my sinuses, my doctor has broken every bone in my sinuses except one. He said there is nothing else he can do except brake the other one.
I keep getting infections and get large green balls of mucous and blood from my nose.
Sometimes I get these balls even when I don't have an infection. I try to do the nasal washes but they make me feel like I am sick and I am laying on the couch or in bed for a day or two.

Would a cosmetic surgeon be able to do anything to help the situation? Or do you know?

I am in pretty good health considering some of my health issues everything is treated and under control.

Cosmetic surgeon might help with this situation. Although, cosmetic surgery is not what you actually need. The green mucous might be a sign of chronic infection. The infection might be hard to cure because of the bad air flow in the nasal cavity and sinuses.
You might want to ask second opinion from another specialist for Ear, Nose and Throat or from cosmetic surgeon.
