As with any surgical procedure, rhinoplasty comes with risks and complications such as infection, bleeding, negative reactions to medications, and improper wound healing. Double board-certified Fort Lauderdale rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Jon Harrell takes every care to help guard against these potential surgical issues. You can further reduce your risks by closely following all of Dr. Harrell’s postsurgical advice.
Risks and complications specific to rhinoplasty include:
- Difficulties breathing through your nose
- Loss of sensation around the nose
- Persistent discoloration or swelling
- Visible scars
- Recurring nose bleeds
- Asymmetrical or displeasing results
At the Weston Center for Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery, we strongly believe you should make an informed decision about your plastic surgery procedure. While risks with rhinoplasty are rare, they are not impossible and should be fully considered before you commit to this procedure. During your initial Fort Lauderdale rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Harrell will discuss potential complications, address your concerns, and help you decide if rhinoplasty is right for you.
