Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic intervention performed to make the nose look much more symmetrical and beautiful. At the same time, nose surgery also eliminates deformations in the nose that causes breathing problems, therefor facilitates good breathing.
Nasal surgeries have much more successful results today with the developing technology and the recovery process is much easier. Rhinoplasty, one of the most common cosmetic operations, not only gives people the chance to have a natural nose, but also prevents the loss of self-confidence that people experience.
Rhinoplasty can change the bone, cartilage tissue, skin layer or all three as required. During the consultation, the rhinoplasty surgeon will consider other features of the patient’s face, skin on the nose and what the patient’s concerns and needs. The consultation before the surgery will be able to create a surgical plan to achieve a nose that both pleases you and suits your other features.
As with all major surgeries, rhinoplasty also carries various risks. There are always risks of infection, bleeding, and a negative reaction to anaesthesia in major surgeries.
There are also separate specific rhinoplasty surgery risks. These include difficulty in breathing through the nose, permanent numbness in and around the nose, uneven looking nose, pain, discoloration or swelling that may persist, scarring, a hole in the septum, and additional surgical intervention.
