Does rhinoplasty hurt before, during or after surgery? Many people want or need rhinoplasty, but that’s one question most people have. As with most surgical procedures, there is potential for some pain following the procedure, which Dr. Peter Abramson will help you manage. You may be bruised and swollen, and your nose will most likely be packed with gauze. Once the packing is removed the level of discomfort is largely decreased. And for most patients, the post surgery discoloration and swelling looks worse than it actually feels. After the initial post-op edema subsides, which is relatively quickly, some swelling may persist over the next several months, so the ultimate result may not be evident. Since all patients are different, the degree of pain experienced and the extent of post-op swelling and bruising really depends on each individual’s personal pain threshold and healing speed. As well, the extensiveness of the surgery and whether it is an open or closed procedure will contribute to the duration of the recovery process.
However, does rhinoplasty hurt during the procedure at our own surgery center? You can count on the skill and expertise of double board-certified surgeon Dr. Peter J. Abramson to perform the procedure with a minimum of discomfort in our surgical center.
