Rhinoplasty Risks And Side Effects
Before you decide to undergo rhinoplasty, or any other surgical procedure, it is imperative that you understand all of the risks and side effects that may arise due to this surgery. Some of the potential nose surgery complications include:
- Nose bleed
- Reaction to anesthesia
- Need for a second procedure (rhinoplasty revision)
By meeting with a knowledgeable rhinoplasty doctor, you can learn more about your chances of experiencing surgical difficulties. Be sure to ask your surgeon all of your questions regarding the risks and side effects associated with nasal surgery.
One of the best ways to minimize your chances of experiencing any surgical problems is by selecting a qualified plastic surgeon who is trained specifically to perform rhinoplasty.
Don't hesitate to ask your surgeon about his or her qualifications, to see their before and after pictures of rhinoplasty, read testimonials, and even request information regarding their professional background in plastic surgery. Additionally, feel free to meet with a variety of doctors before selecting the one who will perform your nasal surgery, and remember to bring along the "Question to Ask Your Doctor" checklist to help keep you on track.
