A rhinoplasty procedure is a relatively safe procedure but it does carry risks just like any surgical procedure would do. The most common risks after a rhinoplasty procedure include; infection, excessive bleeding, reaction to the anaesthetic, poor wound healing, scarring, change in skin sensation, skin discolouration, difficulty breathing, nasal septal perforation, unsatisfactory nasal appearance and the possibility of revisional surgery being required.
Your plastic surgeon will go through, in detail all the risks and complications that are associated with rhinoplasty surgery. You will also receive a Rhinoplasty patient guide which will have all the information you need to know before going ahead with rhinoplasty surgery. A consultation is also a great time to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have about the procedure and your surgeon will also be able to assess you and discuss which rhinoplasty technique is going to be most suitable for you and what you can realistically expect from surgery.
