I’m a 37 year old man from Sunset Valley and I would like a nose job. I have a nose that points to the left because it is crooked. It is so crooked that people who look at me do a double take and then their eyes hone in on my nose. I hate this. I would like my nose reshaped with rhinoplasty. What are the dangers associated with rhinoplasty? What is the possibility that my nose could be ruined?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure and there are certainly associated risks such as infection, scarring and failure to obtain symmetry. Any crooked nose is difficult to achieve exact symmetry and the more significant the initial deviation is the more difficult the result. However, it is unlikely that the nose would be worse than the initial condition unless something very rare happened like a significant infection. As long as the patient’s expectations are realistic, rhinoplasty is a reasonable option.
