| | Augmentation Rhinoplasty
Hi, I'm in my early 20s and considering an augmentation rhinoplasty to project the nose and the nose bridge of my rather flat nose. But I've got my concerns, which may apply to both augmentation and reduction rhinoplasty. It would be helpful if anyone can address some of my concerns.
1) Is there a chance of damaging any nerves while operating on the nose? If the nerves are damaged, will any other part of the face be affected (such as inability to smile)?
2) Is the silicon implant or any facial implant safe even after 20 or 40 years? Any sort of statistics being done perhaps?
3) Is there a risk of the doctor totally messing up my face? I really just need my nose to be projected more so it won't alter my appearance drastically if anything happens, right?
Thank you for addressing any of my 3 concerns about this operation. Of course, I'll be asking doctors about these when the time comes. I just want to get some idea.
