Is it painful to get a nose job?

Although nose jobs are one of the most popular plastic surgeon in the world, many doctors report low patient satisfaction, which is likely due to our sensitivity to this part of the face. However, most people who are considering rhinoplasty surgery want to know the answer to one crucial question: does rhinoplasty hurt?

Is Rhinoplasty a Painful Procedure?

If you’re wondering if rhinoplasty hurts, keep in mind that the process is done under anaesthetic, so you won’t feel any discomfort while your surgeon is working. Before any incisions are made in your nose, you will be given a general anaesthetic. In order to do the necessary reshaping, your surgeon will need to cut through bone and/or cartilage, which will entail the use of anaesthesia. Although it is undeniable that you will be in pain following your operation, many individuals claim that they look worse than they feel.

What Should You Expect Following Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Swelling, discomfort, and pain are more common after surgery, during the healing phase, and after the anesthetic wears off. You may notice bruising in your nose, beneath your eyes, and around your cheekbones for up to seven days after the surgery is finished.

How Do I Deal With Pain And Swelling Following A Nose Job?

It should give you peace of mind to know that your surgeon has conducted enough nose jobs that he or she is qualified to advise you on how to deal with any discomforts that may arise following your treatment. You’ll be given pain, swelling, and bruise medication, as well as instructions to relax and sleep with your head elevated. This will aid in the reduction of edema. Ice packs or cold compresses will almost certainly be recommended by your doctor.

In the days following your rhinoplasty surgery treatment, some mucus flow is considered normal. You’ll also be told not to blow your nose for at least seven days after the treatment by your surgeon.

You should also anticipate to have headaches as you recuperate. As you recuperate after surgery, it’s critical to obtain as much rest as possible. Make sure your home is set up to allow you to do as little as possible so that your recuperation may proceed as smoothly as possible. You will be urged not to smoke or consume alcohol thereafter because smoking can raise your risk of infection and slow down your recovery time.

After nose jobs, deal with discomfort and swelling

Your surgeon will put a splint across your nose after the procedure to maintain it in shape. The region will be bandaged, which may be uncomfortable at first, but it is an important aspect of the healing process that you must complete. The bandages will come off after this seven to ten day period, and the pain and swelling will most likely have improved.
