Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
2 Doctor Answers | Asked by happy nose
It is not uncommon to have early post operative nasal congestion after a rhinoplasty. It usually resolves in 6-8 weeks. One can use nasal spray frequently. If it persists more than 6 months, one may have a functional internal nasal valve scarring that needs to be corrected by an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.
Hello, Without a physical evaluation and the details of your surgery it is hard to provide you with a solid assessment. Was a septa-rhinoplasty performed only or were there other nasal parts targeted? I recommend that you consult your surgeon who knows the full details of your surgery so he/she can physically examine you and diagnose the problem. I hope this helps. Thank you for your inquiry. The best of wishes to you. Dr. Sajjadian
