Dr. Kim will carefully explain the surgical procedure recommended for your specific case. Prior to surgery, you will be given specific instructions that may include:
- Pre-surgical considerations, diagnostic testing and medications.
- Day of surgery instructions and medications.
- Specific information related to the use of anesthesia.
- Postoperative care and follow up.
In addition, you will be asked to sign consent forms to assure your plastic surgeon that you fully understand the procedure you will undergo and any risks or potential complications.
The risks associated with surgery of the nose include infection, nosebleed or rupture of small surface vessels of the nose. Surgery of the nose is a procedure in which aesthetic outcomes can be unpredictable, and in some cases a second procedure may be necessary to fully achieve your goals. These risks and others as well as those associated with anesthesia will be discussed prior to your consent.
