Minimal: As with any surgery, bleeding, infection are know complications. With rhinoplasty, asymmetry, breathing difficulties, unhappiness with the ultimate appearance are all known complications/side effects. Most of these are extremely rare. You can minimize the possibility of these untoward effects by seeking out a surgeon, certified by the american board of plastic surgery.

Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty or nasal plastic surgery is a great option for improving both the functional (breathing) and cosmetic aspects of the nose. A consultation with a facial plastic surgeon will go over all the risks and benefits of this surgery.

Very few potential : A properly performed nose-job or rhinoplasty, has very few side effects. All surgeries carry potential risks of bleeding, infection, asymmetry and poor healing. The bigger concern is making the nose appear natural and to have it fit your individual face. This is where the talent of the plastic surgeon resides.

Rhioplasty effects: Usually very little happens - other than a pleasing change in your appearance. You get some black and blue and swelling which goes away quickly. Also you may have some nasal stuffiness and nasal bleeding, pain is minor and your recovery is quick. See a well qualified plastic surgeon and talk about what you want done.
