Nasal surgery in Saint Lucie County 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?
While nasal surgery does pose some risks, it’s necessary to keep in mind that every surgery can present complications. Nevertheless, some types of surgery entail more risks than others. Nasal surgery is not considered a dangerous surgery because severe complications are very rare, and many can be prevented with proper care.
Some of the risks of nasal surgery are:
• Reaction to anesthesia
• Septum perforation
• Nose discoloration or redness
This last risk is one of the most feared by people, as it can make their problem worse and require another surgery to fix. However, this can be easily prevented by having your surgery with an expert and skilled doctor with the appropriate board certifications.
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is performed to reshape, reduce or augment a person’s nose, remove a hump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, or to correct injury, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing.
