– Rhinoplasty can be performed on people with a previous nose injury, but it’s important for the patient to inform the surgeon about their medical history before the surgery. A previous nose injury can affect the nasal anatomy and function, which can impact the outcome of the surgery.
– It is important for the patient to have fully healed from the previous injury before undergoing rhinoplasty. If the patient has active injury, the surgeon may recommend postponing the procedure. This is to avoid complications such as infections, bleeding or poor healing after surgery.
– A nose injury can cause a deviation of the nose from its normal position, which can affect the breathing and aesthetic appearance. The surgeon will evaluate the extent of the injury, the type of injury and the time since the injury happened before deciding if the patient is a good candidate for surgery.
– The surgeon will also take into account the patient’s specific injury when planning the surgery and may use special techniques to minimize the risk of complications. Postoperative care and follow-up will also be tailored to the patient’s specific needs.
