Can i go for a rhinoplasty as i have blocked nose ?

hello. i am going for rhinoplasty next week and recently i have a mild stuffy nose, no sneezing or mucus though. It just felt a little blocked,it happen sometimes only and not all the time. Will it be alright to go for the rhinoplasty still? Or i should postpone the surgery? i m just a little afraid that it will cause complications after my rhinoplasty.

Mild nasal stuffiness should not interfere with the rhinoplasty procedure, but may worsen due to post operative edema. Usually nasal packing is required for 24 - 48 hours post-op. Since this is an elective procedure, you may postpone your surgery by a few days.
