Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Does Smoking and Alcohol Increase Swelling Post Rhinoplasty?
I had open rhinoplasty surgery about 2 months ago and it looked good until I started partying. Does alcohol consumption or smoking increase inflammation and swelling in and around the tip of the nose?
Smoking leads to more swelling
Smoking and drinking not conducive to good healing
The short answer is yes.
