Upper airway infection with symptoms such as running nose, sneezing, sore throat, cough is an indication of delaying rhinoplasty operation. The anesthesia does not prefer this condition, the surgeon does n’t like to incise an infected nose as well. The patient should inform the doctor and the rhinoplasty operation should be postponed to a further date. The disease should be treated avoiding herbal teas and aspirin since they may increase bleeding during the operation. If a new upper way infection takes place after rhinoplasty procedure, the doctor should be informed. Increase in crusting, diffusion of infection through the sutures and diminishing the recovery period may process. It should be cured also.
