One cosmetic procedure that has seen a spike in popularity over the last few years has been 'rhinoplasty', or the reshaping of the nose. Though this process is almost always for cosmetic purposes and not to seek to correct any illness or medical defect, the procedure itself still contributes to a host of risks for the patient. It is best to fully understand those risks before going under the knife.
Cosmetic surgeons are required to provide a reasonable standard of care to all of the patients that they treat. If this is not done and a surgeon acts in a negligent manner, he or she should be held accountable for his or her actions under the law. If you believe you have been mistreated by a physician, nurse, or other medical professional, call the Wausau personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 today.
Potential Rhinoplasty Complications
The following complications are possible if a surgeon does not perform the procedure in the correct manner:
- Collapse of the nasal valve
- Open roof deformity
- Polly beak nasal deformity
- Nasal stenosis
- Septal performation
- Bossa formation
- Synechiae formation
- Rocker deformity
Though some of these complications can be minor, others can be serious enough to interfere with your daily life and can be visually obvious to others. These effects should not be tolerated and those who perform surgery recklessly or negligently should be brought to trial for their mistakes.
