What are the risks and limitations with rhinoplasty?
Patients with thick skin many not experience as much of an improvement in appearance as those with thinner skin since thicker skin may not conform and contract to the newly sculpted underlying framework. After nasal surgery, patients may experience nose bleeds, numbness, holes in the nasal septum, infection, difficulty breathing and swelling. These are usually of a temporary nature, resolving with proper care and time. There can also be a need for revision surgery.Rare sequelae can include deep vein thrombosis, cardiac, pulmonary and anesthetic related complications.
