Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients ask about the risks of rhinoplasty or nose job surgery. Just like any surgery where there is an incision made in the skin, there is the risk of bleeding, pain, infection, numbness, and scar. Specific risks to rhinoplasty are poor wound healing leading to irregularities in the shape of the nose or cartilage graft resorption. If a septoplasty is performed, there is the risk of a septal perforation which is quite rare.
