Should you feel scared about rhinoplasty?

We asked Mrinal Supriya if there is anything to be scared of when considering rhinoplasty surgery

Laura Livesey: I think anybody considering surgery has some fear. Should you be scared when you’re considering a rhinoplasty surgery?

Mrinal Supriya:

If you have a rhinoplasty after a realistic discussion with a competent surgeon, there is nothing to be scared of.

The problem arises if the patient has an unrealistic expectation that has not been clarified in the preoperative consultation with their surgeon. As far as the procedure itself is concerned, it is virtually painless because of the general anaesthesia. In the recovery phase, you will not have any significant pain at all…
