How to prevent complications after rhinoplasty
In order to avoid possible complications, the clients should observe certain rules prior to rhinoplasty. At least 2 weeks before the procedure, they should stop administering medications supporting reduced blood clotting. It is also important to provide for a respite after a viral infection or a disease treated by antibiotics, which should not be shorter than 3 to 4 weeks. The patient is allowed to eat for the last time the evening before the intervention.
Even though the patient observes an appropriate pre-surgery preparation, various complications may occur during the surgery itself, as well as immediately after it, and even after several months. The undesirable effects include for instance bleeding. It can be usually stopped by nasal packing or medications working against it. With regard to increased bleeding capacity, this type of surgery should not be performed on women during their menstruation period.
Though rarely, also graver complications may occur. For instance infection after rhinoplasty is nowadays really exceptional. In order to avoid it, patients having undergone the intervention should be careful when bathing in the sea, swimming pools or elsewhere, trying to prevent water from penetrating into nasal chambers. If the infection occurs, the patient must be treated with antibiotics, after which its symptoms usually quickly subside.
People suffering from allergies or endocrine disorders can be surprised by nose swellings. However, they mostly disappear after appropriately performed massaging. Clients with an oily and porous skin may suffer from nose tip hypertrophy. Regrettably, our clinic has recently encountered patients from other clinics, where their rhinoplasty was performed inappropriately. They then address our surgeons led by MUDr. Jan Měšťák with a request of corrective surgery.
With rhinoplasty, it is absolutely essential to choose an experienced surgeon. The selection of the appropriate clinic should not be underestimated. Subsequent corrective interventions required from our clinic by patients coming from other institutes are unnecessarily exacting.
