Minor Discomforts following rhinoplasty plastic surgery
Bruising around the eyes
Although, bruising around the eye are rare during the first HOURS after the surgery; one day or two days after rhinoplasty, bruising appears significantly around the eyes. They grow and peak on the second day but will vanish gradually from the second day on and will be almost gone after one week. Use cold compress during the first few days to minimize the bruising.
Swellings of the nose
Do not worry about the nasal swelling and discolorations. Major swellings will vanish 2 or 3 weeks after the surgery to the extent that the people who do not know you, would not recognize that. Minor swellings vanish in a few months after which the beauty of the nose will be revealed.
Nasal Congestion and stuffiness
Swelling of the nasal tissue causes nasal congestion during the first few days after operation. It might prevent nasal drops to go inside the nose and reach the throat. Do not worry and keep using the droppers.
Nasal stuffiness can persist for as long as six weeks after rhinoplasty.
