Is a Nose Job a Painful Procedure?

Rhinoplasty is one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures not only in Sydney but around the world. People undergo a nose job to change their nose shape or improve their breathing. One of the concerns many patients have when considering a nose job is whether the procedure is painful. 

In this blog, Artiste Plastic Surgery discusses the pain and discomfort involved in rhinoplasty and things to do to manage it.

Does Rhinoplasty Hurt? 

The good news is that nose job surgery is performed under anaesthesia, so patients should not feel any pain during the procedure. However, once the anaesthetic wears off, patients may experience discomfort and swelling, which are common. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions and discuss the dos and donts after the surgery to minimise discomfort.

Pain and Discomfort After Rhinoplasty Surgery

Patients may experience pain, swelling, bruising, and nasal congestion for several days after the procedure. The severity of these symptoms varies depending on the individual and the extent of the surgery. Symptoms improve after 5 days, and most of our patients do not take any pain medication after 7 days.

How To Manage Pain And Swelling After A Nose Job?

There are several ways to manage pain and discomfort after surgery. Patients can take pain medication as prescribed by their surgeon and use cold compresses to help reduce swelling. It’s also important to keep the head elevated, avoid bending over, and avoid strenuous activities that could increase blood pressure and cause further swelling. 

Additionally, patients should avoid blowing their nose for the first week after surgery and use a saline nasal spray to help keep the nasal passages moist. Following your surgeon’s post-operative instructions and attending follow-up appointments can help ensure a smooth recovery.
