Does it hurt after a Rhinoplasty?

Does it hurt after a Rhinoplasty?
Usually, a rhinoplasty is not a painful procedure, the patients don’t feel a lot of discomfort and pain. Patients feel pressure in the nose, almost like if you had a sinus infection or a cold because every area around the nose, like the sinuses, gets a little bit swollen around that and that creates pressure in the face. Some patients may have a headache as well, but it’s not very common to have… it’s not a painful procedure, you don’t feel the cuts or the incisions in the nose. And most patients feel really well just with anti-inflammatories and acetaminophen. Very few patients need to take narcotics or strong pain pills. So I would say that it’s not very disomfortable and the pain level is mild.
