Risks of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a common procedure and serious complications are rare, however as with all operations there can be certain risks. These may be:

–       Bleeding

–       An injury or holes in the septum

–       Skin issues which can include the breakdown of skin tissue

–       Infection, although preventative antibiotics is sometimes given after surgery to decrease this risk.

–       Swelling inside the nose which may create a serious nasal blockage

–       Complications associated with anesthesia.

–       Loss of sense of smell
