What are the most common complications of rhinoplasty?


What are mistakes that non-plastic surgeons commonly make, and why is it better to have a nose job with a plastic surgeon? I am a medical student from Mexico doing a research paper.


 Welcome to the great field of medicine. In General Rhinoplasty has very few complications as a surgical procedure. Two areas of great concern that should always be addressed with Rhinoplasty pre-operatively are complaints of difficulty breathing and patient expectations. These can be the most common reasons for re-operation. Best,
