Are There Risks with Getting Septoplasty After Rhinoplasty?
I had a badly broken nose when I was 7 years old. My health insurance covers the Septoplasty to improve the breathing function of the nose, but naturally doesn't cover the cosmetic Rhinoplasty procedure. I could get sick leave from work fine with the septoplasty operation at any time, but not with the rhinoplasty, so I decided to go ahead and have the rhinoplasty first during my annual holiday leave for a month in September, via a private hospital. Was this a mistake? Could having a septoplasty some time in the future now damage, or cause cosmetic problems after?
Normally we do these together.
