Risks of Rhinoplasty
Complications of nasal surgery are infrequent and usually minor.
Nevertheless, there is always a possibility of complications, including infection, bleeding, or a reaction to the anesthetic or sedative medications. After surgery, small blood vessels may appear beneath the skin which may require treatment. The surgery is performed either using incisions on the inside of the nose, so no visible scars are present, or under certain circumstances, at the base of the nose, the “open approach”. The “open approach” allows better visualization of certain internal structures of the nose.
