What Are The Risks Of Rhinoplasty?

As with any surgical procedure there can be rhinoplasty risks and complications. Risks associated with major surgery generally include bleeding, infection and anaesthesia risks such as an adverse reaction. More specific complications of rhinoplasty plastic surgery include septum damage, nose cartilage damage and post rhinoplasty breathing. Poor wound healing and scarring after rhinoplasty may also be an issue for some people.

 

Rhinoplasty is probably the most demanding of all facial surgical operations and the number one risk is nose bleeding after rhinoplasty. Due to the delicate blood vessels in the nose, all patients will lose some blood during a rhinoplasty, but there can also be substantial blood loss through nose bleeding after rhinoplasty. It is important to follow the post-operative aftercare instructions to minimise this risk.

 

Changing the shape and size of the nose may result in a change in the way the patient breathes through their nose. Nose smell problems may also be an issue for 3-6 weeks after surgery. For a small minority of patients these problems with sense of smell may linger much longer. Additionally, many patients experience a bad smell in their nose after rhinoplasty. This is caused by crusting and may last for up to three months after the surgery.
