Let's work over the field $\mathbb{C}$ of complex numbers, and let $X\subset \mathbb{P}^n$ be a projective variety. Let $\tilde{X}\subset \mathbb{P}^n$ be any small open neighborhood of $X$, in the complex topology.

Question: Do there exist many algebraic varieties $\subset \tilde{X}$ of dimension equal to the dimension of $X$?

Of course, $X$ itself lies in there, and one may apply some automorphism of $\mathbb{P}^n$ close to the identity to obtain some further examples. I would be interested in any construction of more subvarieties in $\tilde{X}$, or examples showing that in general these may not exist. Note that the degree of the subvarieties is allowed to be arbitrarily large, and that I do not want to consider only deformations of $X$ (which might be rigid).
