5 Health Risks of Nose Surgery

Though the greater majority of nose surgery patients have no problems with their nose adjustment procedures, there are some that have found their experience to be nothing short of a disaster. Finance is of excuse as everyone can choose their own way to pay off the bill. Some try to cover them up in insurance coverage and some others choose payday loans for easy and fast money with some interest on it.

The level of negative side affects due directly to an intrusive type procedure is even more traumatizing than any implants, suctions or tucks because the nose is central to the face and one can do very little to mask problems related to it.

Including the health risks involved when considering nose surgery is a wise way to prepare for a surgery. The risks listed below are in no particular order of occurrence.

  1. Adverse reaction to anesthesia: This can happen during the surgery as you body fights against the pain killing medicine administered to help with the discomfort of getting nose surgery. Symptoms can range from mild to sever and can include any of the following: Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea. Symptoms will subside as the drug is worked out of the body. Some rare reactions will be much more severe rising the very life of the patient.
  2. Excessive Bleeding: A person undergoing nose surgery can have excessive bleeding during surgery and during recovery. All qualified plastic surgeons are prepared for the possibility of this above average bleeding and will use cauterization or packing the nose to prevent further blood loss. After surgery the biggest cause of excessive bleeding is a symptom of elevated blood pressure or an accidental nose blowing.
  3. Infection: As in invasive surgery, there can be no absolute guarantee against infection. A patient can be at greater risk if silicone implants or other foreign materials are added to the nose to add shape support. Increased swelling, redness, tenderness and unusual drainage are the first signs of infection.
  4. Nasal Obstructions: There is no exact science as to how the nose will actually heal. Scar tissue within the nasal cavity can build up and cause breathing obstructions. There is also a risk of having too much space within the air passage which can also cause breathing difficulties. The best efforts of the surgeon will be applied to minimize these risks.
  5. Residual Damage: The areas surrounding the nose can be damaged. The danger zones to consider are the tear ducts and the actual skull injury. Damage to the tear ducts could cause constant tearing, while damage to the nasal septum near the skull could cause brain fluid leakage.
