If you have every considered getting a nose job, you should know that there are plenty of benefits and risks associated with the surgery. You’re likely aware of some of these benefits and risks already, but during a consultation with Bergen County plastic surgeon Dr. Tzvi Small, he’ll be sure to go over both in depth. It’s important that you know both the pros and cons of the surgery so that you have realistic expectations of what the surgery can achieve and what it can do for you.

Right now, we’d like to look at some of the pros and cons of Paramus rhinoplasty (nose job). While we can’t possibly detail all of them in this space, we think this general delineation will help you have realistic expectations about the surgery and what it can do for you.

Let’s start with the risks. The most common risks associated with rhinoplasty are the same you can expect from other kinds of surgery. These common risks include allergic reactions to anesthetic, poor healing time, discomfort, and infection. Risks unique to rhinoplasty include nosebleeds, poor shaping of the nose, issues with the nasal passages, and possible respiratory problems. By following our instructions for pre-operative and post-operative care, you can significantly mitigate these risks.

The benefits of rhinoplasty are numerous. Aesthetically, you can greatly alter your appearance for the better even with just a subtle change to the nose. If you have bumps or ridges on the bridge of the nose that are problematic, these can be taken away quite easily through surgery. If you have been injured and your nose is deformed or broken, a rhinoplasty can reshape and restore your nose. Rhinoplasty also has some medical applications, meaning that it can effectively address some cases of sleep apnea and certain breathing problems associated with the nasal passages.
