Plastic surgeries, especially rhinoplasty treatments, have been known to go wrong for many reasons. Sometimes it can be because of mistakes made by the surgeon. It can also be because the patients do not do their research properly before going through the procedure and so, are unsatisfied with the results.
Rhinoplasty (more popularly known as “nose job” or nose surgery) is a plastic surgery procedure for correcting and reconstructing the nose, as well as improving the nose aesthetically and functionally. It can change the size, shape, or structure of the nose. It is an incredibly popular treatment and hundreds of people have undergone rhinoplasty surgery. But it is a very tricky surgical procedure, and it is important to get it right the first time. Most of the time, if the primary surgery goes wrong, it can be fixed by revision surgery. Revision rhinoplasty is an extremely complex procedure because once nasal anatomy is changed, it is very hard to re-correct. That’s why it is important to make sure that the surgeon you have selected is qualified and experienced.

Having a skilled rhinoplasty surgeon will increase the chances of a successful procedure, but the results of the procedure also depend on factors like your health, genes, or lifestyle habits. Not following post-surgery instructions also affects the results of the procedure. In this guide, we will discuss common rhinoplasty issues that could come up post-surgery.

How To Prevent These Issues?
The ultimate result of the surgery depends on many factors. Candidates with clear complexions, healthy immune systems, strong healing capacities, and the right genes are more likely to have a more satisfying outcome. It is also essential to follow the surgeon’s instructions carefully, both before and after the surgery. But the most important thing is to have realistic expectations.
There is no “one size fits all” with noses. The nose should suit the proportions of the face and blend harmoniously with other facial features. Just because a specific style of nose suits someone, does not mean that the same style will suit you. An experienced surgeon will hear you out and make sure to explain to you the best way to get the results you need. So, it is important to research carefully and select a fully trained and experienced surgeon who will ensure that you understand the possible results and the potential risks and complications.
