Given the central role of the nose both in our health and in our appearance, nasal surgery in Port Saint Lucie has always been very common. Whether you have trouble breathing or don’t like the how your nose looks, nasal surgery can help you achieve your wellbeing goals.
Despite being common, some people are afraid of having nasal surgery. This is because they are afraid of affecting their noses’ aspect or function, making things worse than they were before.
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. When performed by a knowledgeable, board-certified surgeon, nasal surgery will almost always be an outpatient procedure with a relatively short recovery time.
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 in Port Saint Lucie can be pursued for both functional and cosmetic purposes. It can improve airflow by repositioning a deviated septum, treat chronic sinusitis or nasal polyposis, remove a hump or straighten a crooked nose, among other uses.
