How Painful is Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery, as it is more commonly known is a cosmetic procedure in which the shape of the nose is changed. The word rhinoplasty comes from the Greek words “ray” and “plastos”. The change can be done both to the nose, or to various parts of the face. When the surgeon performs the operation, he or she makes incisions along the septum (the cartilage dividing the nose into two halves). The incisions are generally made in the nostrils or behind the ears.

The question at some point is whether the pain is better than the risk when you undergo an operation such as rhinoplasty. The main reason that people have pain is because they have done something to their nose that wasn’t in the plans, perhaps they made a big mistake. For this reason, a good nose job by a qualified surgeon will alleviate a lot of the pain.

There are two general groups of pain that people experience following rhinoplasty. The first group is called post-operative pain, and it consists of swelling, bruising, and general soreness. You will probably also feel a bit cold to the touch. Most people in this group report feeling back pain the day after their surgery, but it usually goes away after a few days.

The other type of pain is what is called post-operative pain, and it relates to the damage to the tissues that support the nose, called the cartilage. When you get nasal contouring surgery of any kind, the surgeon will make sure that he or she takes every precaution to reduce your chances of having problems like these after the operation is completed. Some of the things the surgeon might do include stitching up blood vessels and reducing the amount of cartilage that is removed during the operation.

The best way to tell if you are going to have too much pain after getting rhinoplasty is to ask the surgeon about it ahead of time. You need to be able to explain your symptoms to him, such as if you feel pain when eating certain foods or when you open your mouth. The surgeon can then decide whether or not you need to have any extra procedures done in order to deal with your particular symptoms. Usually, however, the doctor will be happy to see you back to normal in a matter of days.

After rhinoplasty, most patients are given a list of follow up appointments that they should attend for at least 6 weeks. They will want to make sure that they follow the post operation instructions given to them by the surgeon. This includes keeping up with any oral or nasal hygiene, maintaining weight, and avoiding sudden and excessive movements of the jaw. By doing so, your recovery will be less stressful, and you can quickly get back to living a normal life.
