Surgical Risks Involved
Complications are uncommon, but can occur in the best of hands. The most common problems are excessive bleeding (hemorrhage) and post-operative infection.
Other more rare complications would include:
- double vision
- brain fluid leak
- loss of sense of smell and/or taste
- tear duct injury
- meningitis or infection of brain lining
- bruising around the eyes or eye injury
These serious complications are very rare, but must be understood as being part of the risk of surgery.
