I have a nose job scheduled for tomorrow but I feel like I am getting a cold. I do not want to postpone surgery unless I absolutely have to, since I have been waiting for a long time. Can I get a nose job while I have a cold?
You should talk to your surgeon about your symptoms. He or she will decide if it is safe to proceed with surgery as scheduled. When you have a cold, the inside of your nose may be swollen due to issues with the sinuses. Swelling can make it difficult for the surgeon to operate. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, your surgeon may be able to proceed but ultimately he or she can make that decision. Thank you for the question.
