A nose job is one of the most common facial plastic surgeries performed in the United States. It also is one of the most popular plastic surgeries among men. A rhinoplasty can alter the shape, size, and projection of the nose. The procedure can also address certain features such as humps, bumps, or the size of the nostrils. Prior to surgery, patients often ask about rhinoplasty side effects. What are they and how long do they last? Rhinoplasty procedures are performed under general anesthesia which is associated with side effects like nausea, sore throat, vomiting, muscle aches, and many others. If a patient experiences side effects like these, they should subside in about a day. Longer term side effects or complications are possible, but extremely rare in good surgical candidates. It is important to discuss if you have experienced side effects or complications from general anesthesia in the past. Like any surgical procedure, a Bellevue rhinoplasty comes with some side effects. Dr. Jonov will prescribe pain medications following surgery to keep you comfortable. Swelling, redness, and bruising can occur. Some patients may have black eyes depending on the extent of the procedure. Rhinoplasty side effects should subside in 7-10 days. While some residual swelling may remain, it should be virtually unnoticeable. To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
