Pain after Rhinoplasty
Nasal valve surgery addresses the cartilage of the nose. Although any invasive plastic surgery procedure is associated with some degree of pain this should not be to severe. The majority of discomfort from rhinoplasty is due to osteotomies or ‘breaking the bones’ of the nose which is not necessary in nasal valve surgery.
