Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty) Compensation Claims

When it comes to achieving beauty many people turn to plastic surgery to alter certain areas of their body that they don’t like. Each person has a different area of their body that they don’t like and for some they are large areas and for some they are small. When it comes to the face it’s perhaps one of the most prominent areas of our body and therefore the one that most frequently goes under the knife.

The nose is one area that most people like to change. Commonly people complain about their nose being too big and wanting it to be slightly smaller and slimmer. In some cases, people choose to have rhinoplasty for medical reasons – they may be struggling to breathe properly or if they are a singer it could be affecting the tone and style of their voice. 

Whatever the reason, rhinoplasty like any other form of surgery can be dangerous if not conducted properly and if you feel that your surgeon has been negligent towards you then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation for any financial problems that you have encountered as a result. 

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is the procedure of restructuring and reshaping the nose. This type of surgery is commonly used to fix problems with breathing or vocal projection that people may have, or to repair the nose after a trauma. But in some cases people choose to have it for cosmetic reasons because they dislike the way that their nose looks. 

The surgical procedure itself involves removing the nasal tissue, rearranging it into a more suitable position and then setting it so that it doesn’t move around. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common surgical procedures and in general the procedure heals completely within a month. A brace must be worn for the first seven days to protect the nose from impact and ensure that it heals in the correct position. 

What can go wrong with Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is often deemed to be one of the safer plastic surgery procedures you can undergo, however there are still many risks involved and some of the most common include:

  • Bleeding – Internally and externally
  • Infection – Of local and surrounding tissue
  • Hematoma – Bleeding under the skin which can be difficult to stop
  • Nerve damage – Permanent nerve damage 
  • Scarring – Scarring can result from most surgical procedures.
