Nasal surgery in Fort Pierce is one of the most popular surgical procedures, as it has the power to both improve quality of life by addressing respiratory problems and enhance the features of a person.
However, many people don’t take the leap to nasal surgery, being afraid of possible complications. This is especially true for nasal surgery performed for beauty reasons, as people don’t think the benefits will outweigh the risks.
So, is nasal surgery truly dangerous?
As with any other surgery, nasal surgery does present risks. Complications like an allergic reaction to anesthesia or infection are common to all types of surgery.
Severe complications in nasal surgery are very rare. With appropriate post-chirurgical care, most people will experience a trouble-free recovery.
Some of the risks specific to nasal surgery include:
• Septum perforation
• Nose discoloration or redness
One of the risks that people fear the most is suffering from deformations on the nose. While this does happen and usually requires another surgery to correct, having your nasal surgery performed by a knowledgeable and board-certified surgeon will avoid this problem.
Nasal surgery can be at the same time one of the easiest surgical procedures for patients and one of the most complex for doctors. Easy because the recovery from it is shorter than other forms of surgery and sometimes there isn’t even need for general anesthesia. Complex because of all the structures a doctor must deal with and the precision it takes to get it right.
Due to the delicacy of the organ and of the variety of reasons why it’s being performed, nasal surgery in Fort Pierce should only be executed by experts in otorhinolaryngology and plastic surgery.
Dr. Christopher Slack specializes in both areas and is triple boarded, with board certification in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery and Otolaryngology – Sleep Medicine.
