Can I Damage my Nose 1-2 Weeks Following Rhinoplasty by Laughing?
- Asked by naserl

Hello! It's been 11 days since my rhinoplasty, I`m still wearing a splint and there was no visible bruising just swelling until this afternoon, when I suddenly felt pain where the bone was broken right under my left eye. It also turned blue in that area...I've been laughing and talking a lot, as I've felt pretty energetic. Can I still damage the bone by laughing.Could I ruin the result? I've had no pain before, so I'm very worried now. Can I rebreak my nasal bones? What happened?
The Effect Of Laughing On The Results Of Rhinoplasty
First, it is not possible that only laughing and talking will damage the results of your rhinoplasty or "re-breaking" your nasal bones as you have mentioned in your post.
Second, the bruising that took place may have been a result of your excessive energy and movements here and there; which led to a localized small bleeding. So, it is beneficial for your recovery to pace yourself and your level of daily activities especially that you are at about 2 weeks post-op.
Thank you for your your inquiry and the best of wishes to you.

Post op rhinoplasty
You may have had a small amount of bleeding but it should not affect the overall outcome much. We always recommend supporting your cheeks with index finger and thumb if you have to laugh soon after rhinoplasty.

Bruising after laughing
I doubt that you re-broke your nasal bones. More likely you just started up some bleeding from increased venous pressure. Try to keep your activity on the quieter side.

Loud laughter right after Rhinoplasty surgery should be discouraged, but the effects of post-op crazy parties would be worse!
