Rhinoplasty surgery, like any other surgery, has some risks. Before you have the surgery done, it is important to make sure your doctor knows all the medications and supplements that you are taking as well as any allergies you may have to medications or things like latex, etc. It important that you and your doctor go over all this information. Discuss what you want to have done and what you expect to get out of the procedure. This will give your surgeon a good idea of how they will be able to help you.
This question is difficult to answer, as there are many factors involved. If the purpose of the surgery is to fix a defect only, one surgery may be all you need. If you are getting a defect repaired for better breathing as well as to change the appearance of your nose, then you may need more than one surgery. At the time of your consultation, your surgeon will examine your nose to determine what needs to be done to help you get your desired results.
Finding the right doctor for you can be difficult. Here are some tips to help you find the right doctor:
The results of rhinoplasty are permanent, and for that reason you need to be sure exactly what you want before you have the procedure performed. Be sure to follow up with your surgeon after the surgery at set intervals and follow his post-op care instructions to the letter.
