Rhinoplasty operations involve making a number of cuts and alterations around the nose, and so it is perfectly normal for some bruising and swelling to occur and to last for a few weeks afterwards. However, if the operation, or your care before or after it, has not been carried out to the proper standards you may be left with more severe side-effects.
These in turn can affect you emotionally; rhinoplasty operations are often intended to make you feel more confident about your appearance, and if a negligent procedure has the opposite effect it can be devastating.
Some physical consequences of a negligent operation are:
- Misshapen nose, or an unwanted result
- Anaesthetic complications
- Changes to your sense of smell
- Breathing difficulties
- Severe cuts and wounds not healing
- Nasal septal perforation
