Are you considering getting a nose job done and are scared of pain? Keep reading the blog to know the pain factor of rhinoplasty.

Reconstructive, cosmetic or medical conditions are a few prominent reasons people choose nose surgery. For instance, some of you may choose rhinoplasty surgery in India to have an aesthetically appealing nose shape, whereas others may consider it due to deviated septum caused by severe injury. Nevertheless, every patient is concerned about the degree of pain while considering nose surgery.

How painful is Rhinoplasty surgery in India?

In most cases, pain is quite controllable; however, most people only report little pain at first, which is mostly experienced during the recovery process in many cases. The operation is carried out under anaesthesia, which numbs the nose and relieves any pain and discomfort.

It's safe to assume that obtaining a nose job causes little to no discomfort, which is ensured by advancing anaesthesia and plastic surgical techniques. Furthermore, if your surgeon uses equipment like piezotome while performing a rhinoplasty procedure, it reduces the possibility of pain. You have the option of having general or local anaesthesia, and your surgeon will choose the one that is most beneficial to you.

Due to years of expertise and extensive development, these anaesthesia are the strongest painkillers in surgery. You will be entirely safe if you follow the rules for selecting the correct surgeon, and your procedure should be completely painless. Since only minor discomfort is experienced during recovery, let's understand if recovery is a pain factor.

Recovery period of rhinoplasty procedure - is it painful?

After the Rhinoplasty procedure, a splint is placed on the patient's nose to keep it in shape. For 24-48 hours, their nasal orifices are closed and stuffed with paraffin gauze. Patients are advised to wear a patch on their top lip that they must change many times a day.

For a maximum of 9 days, the splint is left in the patient's nose. Your surgeon then removes it, allowing you to resume normal activities that you like to do on a daily basis. The bruising and swelling will go down over the following few days. The nose softens as well, and the features appear more natural.

One of the important precautions during the recovery period is to avoid standing out in the sun during the first few days after surgery, as it can cause pain and other minor complications. The patient can begin participating in mild sports after 15 days. After checking with their surgeon, patients can resume heavy workouts after a month.

While recovery may be uncomfortable, it is not painful. As a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience in Rhinoplasty surgery in India, Dr Rajat Gupta ensures satisfactory outcomes as per his patients' anticipation.
