Doctors have warned people that using DIY methods to modify their noses can make them worse and lead to serious complications.

Some of the risks associated with “rhinoplasty at home” include necrosis, infections, nasal obstruction, and anaphylactic shock.

A plastic surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty and member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery, Rodrigo Lacerda, said G1“There is a risk of necrosis, a risk of infection for having done it without asepsis and for having used non-sterile equipment, and a risk of very wide nasal obstruction. The incisions made in a rhinoplasty must be very precise , well – defined places to avoid this risk.”

The doctor added: “These procedures will only make the appearance worse because they are not effective, they will only bring risks. You cannot do this without knowing the nasal anatomy, which is very complex.”
