In brief: Safety

Generally, nose surgery is fairly safe and is a fairly common procedure that is performed on an outpatient, or day surgery, setting.
There are also risks with anesthesia as with any surgery, but overall anesthesia is fairly safe in most people as well....

In brief: Very, but

Very safe, but the most complex facial cosmetic procedure.
Make sure your surgeon is a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

In brief: Nose Job

It is a safe procedure.
Be sure to go to a board-certified plastic surgeon with many years of experience. There is a chance of complications and risks with every type of surgery which is why you should be deemed in good health by your primary care physician before undergoing surgery.

Get a 2nd opinion from an ENT plastics too to see if this is a functional or cosmetic issue, as functional deviated septum may be covered by your indsrance, whereas cosmetic surgery isn't in the US. Go for even a 3rd opinion for cosmetic Sx, as you will have to live with the results/ outcome for the rest of your life. Spend time doing your research now.
