Are There Risks To Rhinoplasty?

Feb 28, 2008
There is always a risk with any surgery, just having an anaesthetic is a risk, so, for that matter is crossing the road, but this article will deal with the risks of rhinoplasty.

On the one hand rhinoplasty can correct nose problems that a person was born with or that they obtained in an accident, on the other, the procedure is also used for purely cosmetic purposes. If you plan on having surgery on your nose then it makes sense to do a little research on the risks of rhinoplasty before you finally commit.

One of the problems with nose surgery is that it has the highest number of people who return for further surgery sometimes this is because something went wrong with the first operation, but more often it is simply that the person is not happy with their new look..

Rhinoplasty, like any other form of plastic surgery has psychological implications. How a person looks has implications for their self-esteem and for the ways in which they are perceived by other people, which is why an increasing number of people are having cosmetic surgery. Just like any other form of surgery there are also the physical risks of rhinoplasty. One of these is the possibility of scarring, while this is a common fear of people having nose surgery, it is generally a very small risk with the closed procedure for nose surgery the risks of rhinoplasty are reduced as there is often no visible scarring. If however, the surgery is more extensive than usual, for example a narrowing of the nostrils, then this can increase the risk of scarring.

One effect of surgery that doesn't often occur but still needs mentioning is the possibility of burst blood vessels in the area which is being attended to. If this happens the person will be left with small red spots that may eventually fade, but sometimes this spotting is permanent and can cause self consciousness for the patient.

Another of the risks of rhinoplasty that doesn't occur often but you need to be aware that it can happen is an abnormally shaped nose. This can happen if something goes wrong with the procedure or if there is a lot of scar tissue that swells. Cases such as this will often require revisional rhinoplasty to put the problem right. This can also happen if a splint is not applied correctly. One other thing that you need to watch out for is the fact that surgery can result in excess mucous and a runny nose for around nine months after surgery.
