Throwing Up After Rhinoplasty

Hello. It is very unlikely that throwing up 6 months after rhinoplasty would cause any damage, but if you feel that you may have caused problems you should consult your surgeon.

Six months after rhinoplasty has allowed enough healing time for your nose to weather routine vomiting issues.  More importantly, "what caused you to vomit?
