Question : I am from Herndon, Virginia and I’m interested in having rhinoplasty. I am a 27 year old female with asthma. Is this procedure safe for patients with asthma?
Answer : I’d be happy to see you in my Herndon Virginia office. After I see you and examine you and come up with a rhinoplasty surgical plan for you, we will refer you to your primary care doctor to get a medical work up and physical and a set of blood labs. Your family doctor would have to assess your asthma and let us know if you are cleared for surgery or not. Most of the time there is no problems. Occasionally further medical work ups may be needed.
