Rhinoplasty and a common cold?
Doctor Answers 1
Cold and surgery
In general undergoing a surgery and having a cold is not ideal as you body will be under greater stress and you will need you immune system at its best. It is even more of an issue when you are about to have a rhinoplasty as the work will be done in the nose. First I would call your doctor ASAP as he is ultimately the one that needs to make that decision but if your cold is significant I would reschedule your surgery to when you are feeling 100%. This is elective surgery so there is no reason to risk it
