There are also several potential short term side effects due to rhinoplasty. However, since it is a highly individualized procedure, side effects vary among patients. Learning about the side effects will help you to make your important decision more confidently and feel more comfortable about the result.
You may feel swelling around your eyes and nose. It is usually more noticeable in the first days following surgery and largely subside after about 2 weeks. However, some minor swelling may exist for more than six months or one year.
Bruising is another rhinoplasty side effect that varies depending on the surgery and patient sensitivity. Bruising is not a serious complication, but if anything seems abnormal, you must visit your physician. His/ her advice on any measures besides rest and time is necessary for your recovery.
rhinoplasty is one of the most powerful ways to improve your appearance, but because it contains extensive changes in nasal bone and cartilage patients may feel pain or discomfort. Fortunately, this discomfort is usually minor and over the counter analgesics manage this pain. For those that are particularly sensitive to pain, stronger pain medication is prescribed.
Rhinoplasty also may have some long term risks. If multiple revision surgeries are done, there is a risk of nerve damage. Another long term complication is unsatisfactory nasal appearance. The result of the surgery is not always what the individual desires. This mostly happens for those who have unrealistic expectations. Even though Runny nose is a temporary condition, in some cases, it lasts for a long time.
