Unqualified surgeon

Although rhinoplasty is not a complex surgery, it still requires dexterity, experience, and expertise from the surgeons. The majority of failed rhinoplasty cases come from the low skill set of the doctor.

Many disreputable facilities with unlicensed and inexperienced surgeons are the culprits behind the rhinoplasty failures.

Therefore, before having rhinoplasty, you must do your research carefully to find yourself a place with reputation, quality, and an exceptional team of surgeons with high expertise and much experience to have your surgery performed, raising the chance of having a beautiful nose shape.

Low-quality rhinoplasty cartilage

Asides from the uncertified surgeons, under quality cartilage is also the reason that causes failed rhinoplasty.

Many facilities advertise themselves as having cheap rhinoplasty. Although this may sound attractive at first, you will soon find these prices risky as many costs that guarantee your safety were cut down to come out with the “wonderful” offer. Among those costs is the cartilage quality.

Undergoing cheap rhinoplasty also means that you are willing to accept the risk of using low-quality cartilage with terrible compatibility. After some time, the implanted cartilage will surely create a rejection reaction, or even more severe complications like nose redness, dorsal exposure, and cartilage allergy and infection.

Uncertified disinfecting procedure

Wound and equipment sterilization is a very important step. However, at “underground” facilities, this part of the process is not up to standard.
This causes the client to face a higher risk of having an infection. This complication is a rare thing to happen in reputable facilities but is a very common issue in low-quality facilities. This is a very dangerous problem and can cause many long-term negative effects on the patient’s nose.

Improper post-operative care

Dedicated post-operative care will allow the nose to recover much faster and more stable, allowing the nose to be in shape quickly. However, by doing this wrong, the nose is at a higher risk of having problems.

After the rhinoplasty, you must clean the wound carefully without touching the nose. In addition, the patient must not lie sideways, use make-up, and have to take medications as prescribed.

How to treat a failed rhinoplasty?

If you are having the symptoms above, you must remain calm and seek a reputable facility to let the doctor diagnose the causes and provide suitable solutions.
