Crying and rhinoplasty

Crying after a rhinoplasty, should have no ill effects on your result.  It is not uncommon for patiens to feel a bit depressed after surgery, but usually this gets better as you heal.

Although upsetting, crying post Rhinoplasty should not do much more than create a bit more post Rhinoplasty swelling IMHO.

I am sure that a lot of rhinoplsty patients cry. Reliefe that the procedure is over and the pain that exists in the post operative period.

Crying after rhinopasty will have no permanent affect on your rhinoplasty result. While having a rhinoplasty is exciting,  it should not bring tears to your eyes.

Crying right after a rhinoplasty

It is very unlikely that crying soon after your rhinoplasty will afect your results though it can sometimes precipitate some bleeding and swelling in the area. Hopefully, the cause of your crying has been resolved and you will be ecstatic with your result.

No, crying after rhinoplasty should not injure your results.  As long as you don't put a significant amount of pressure on your nose immediately after surgery, you should be fine.  IT takes about 6 wk for the bones to completely heal.  Sorry you cried, but hopefully you're feeling better now and enjoying your results!

No, no way.  Unless you were rubbing your nose during this crying spell.
