Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is an incredibly difficult surgery. Whether you are undergoing surgery to fix your nasal passage, or aesthetically enhancing your facial appearance, the risks you take by going through surgery are the same. It is important that your doctor explains the risks in full and provides you with enough time to fully consider those risks before undertaking the surgery.
Successful surgery claims require that the doctor failed to provide you with a satisfactory duty of care and was therefore, negligent. Although there may be inherent risks which you waived prior to undertaking the surgery, there is also a duty of care to best protect you against those risks. This means that if the standard doctor would have been able to prevent those risks, then your doctor may be liable if he or she negligently surpassed the safety precautions to prevent those risks.
After rhinoplasty, your nose will be swollen so it is important to wait the time recommended by the doctor before judging the outcome of the surgery. It is important to remember that successful claims are those where the doctor was negligent, and not those where the patient was simply not happy with the ultimate outcome.
