What are the risks associated with closed rhinoplasty?

Closed (endonasal) rhinoplasty is a popular technique for reshaping the nose performed through incisions inside the nostrils without leaving any visible scars. This procedure has many benefits, including quicker recovery time and more natural-looking results. Dr. Dugar focuses only on closed scarless nose rhinoplasty and believes in natural results.

However, like any surgery, closed rhinoplasty also carries certain risks that patients should be aware of before undergoing the procedure. A poor cosmetic result is one of the most common risks associated with closed rhinoplasty. The nose is a complex structure, and surgeons can face challenges during a closed rhinoplasty.

In some cases, the patient may be dissatisfied with their nose’s shape, size, or symmetry after the surgery, which can result in a need for revision surgery. In this case, if you choose the right surgeon like Dr. Dugar, who has never faced any complications during his surgeries, there is a meager chance of complications. Most of Dr. Dugar’s patients are very happy with their results, and the cosmetic result is what they discussed with Dr. Dugar during the consultation.

Another risk is infection. Because the incisions are made inside the nostrils, there is a higher risk of bacteria entering the surgical site and causing an infection. If not treated promptly, an infection can lead to serious complications and even affect the final outcome of the surgery. Therefore, Dr. Dugar prescribes antibiotics and does post-operation checkups to ensure the nose is healing well, and there are no infections.

In rare cases, there is also the risk of nerve damage during a closed rhinoplasty. The nerves in the nose play a vital role in regulating the sense of smell; damaging them can result in a permanent loss of smell. However, this complication is infrequent, and again by choosing the correct surgeon for your first closed rhinoplasty, there will be no risks to worry about. Dr. Dugar is very experienced with Scarless Nose™ rhinoplasty and is skilled in operating inside the nose, making the risk during surgery almost zero.

Additionally, there is a risk of scarring. Scarring is a natural and expected part of the healing process and can cause permanent changes to the shape or appearance of the nose. Fortunately, there is a technique called Scarless Nose™ rhinoplasty in which the incisions are made inside the nose, and there are no risks of scarring. Dr. Dugar is one of the best surgeons skilled in this technique of Scarless Nose™ rhinoplasty.

Lastly, there is the risk of anesthetic complications. All surgeries require anesthesia, and although it is generally safe, there is always a slight risk of anesthetic complications such as an allergic reaction or breathing difficulties. Therefore, making sure to mention any allergies before surgery is essential. Dr. Dugar does a thorough preoperative consultation to ensure all the risks are discussed for the surgery to go smoothly.

In conclusion, Scarless Nose™ rhinoplasty is a safe and effective technique for reshaping the nose. However, like any surgery, it also carries certain risks that patients should be aware of before undergoing the procedure. Therefore, patients need to choose a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Dugar, who will discuss the procedure’s risks and benefits and help the patient make an informed decision.
