What is Nose Reshaping (Nose Jobs)?
Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a ‘nose job’, can be either a cosmetic or medical surgical procedure (reconstructive surgery). The procedure entails the reconstructing of the nose on a patient to alter its shape, change the angle of the nose, correct a bump or alter the shape of the tip of the nose.
Rhinoplasty is a tricky procedure, with the surgeon making incisions to access the bones and cartilage that support the nose. Some bone and cartilage may be removed, or tissue added.
The nose is the central feature of a person’s face, and is one of the areas of the body that is most commonly disliked. This could be one of the reasons why there is a steady rise year by the year in the number of people undertaking the Rhinoplasty procedure.
With the majority of cases, the procedure is completed correctly, and individuals are happy with the result, there are occasions when things go wrong.
Swain & Co’s cosmetic compensation claim solicitors have the specific legal and clinical knowledge to win your compensation claim.
Potential risks of the Rhinoplasty procedure
As with any cosmetic procedure a Rhinoplasty can present a number of risks.
A significant amount of trust is placed in a clinician’s hands and as such, if mistakes happen, the consequences can be far reaching and, in some cases, life-changing.
- Anaesthetic risks
This can include nausea and vomiting, damage to teeth, respiratory depression, nerve injury, awareness during anaesthesia and in extremely rare cases, death.
- Bleeding (Hematoma)
Rhinoplasty can cause heavy nose bleeding which can be of great discomfort to an individual.
Inflections/Inflexions are rare but can be life threatening.
- Poor wound healing or scarring
This may result in an inadequate nasal appearance.
- Change in skin sensation / perception
- Nasal septal perforation
This is damage to the septum (the cartilage wall between your nostrils)
- Difficulties breathing
Rhinoplasty can cause breathing difficulties
- Decreased sense of smell
Whatever the reason for your cosmetic surgery, if you believe that you have suffered negligent treatment during or after the surgery, it may be possible to proceed with a clinical negligence claim.
