Vibration feeling after rhinoplasty

The majority of your intranasal swelling should be resolved by 5 weeks following a rhinoplasty, but if you have underlying allergies or sinus disease, it is not uncommon to have ongoing issues with congestion and swelling which can be managed with a nasal steroid spray such as Nasonex. However, it is difficult to say exactly why you may be experiencing the vibration feeling. If the sensation persists, I would recommend visiting your surgeon for another evaluation.
