Nose Correction Heidelberg
Very rare complications in rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty can be described, in good conscience, as a low-risk procedure. Complications are rare.
Swelling and bruising are normal sequelae of surgery. They disappear by themselves after some time. On the sensitive mucous membranes inside the nose, too, there may occur slight bleeding which can be treated with tamponades. Occasionally, temporary olfactory disturbances and numbness may occur, which fade away with the healing process progressing.
In exceptional cases, scars may grow excessively under certain circumstances. Problems of wound healing, e.g. caused by inflammation or infection, occur only very rarely. As in rhinoplasty, almost exclusively cartilage from your own body is used as a grafting material, rejection is a rare event. In very rare cases the implants may shift.
