Risks of rhinoplasty surgery:
1. Just like any procedure, nasal surgery has potential complications. However, with highly trained nurses and surgeons, complications are very rare. Just like many procedures, the risk of infection, bleeding or an anesthetic issue are present.
2. Healing process affects the face in some ways. With large skin, the nose is most likely to drop over prolonged time, and there is very high risk of scar tissue below the skin.

Although at times, a revision may require a larger operation, which should be carefully thought by the surgeon.
