Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Is Whistling Nose After Rhinoplasty a Temporary Side Effect?
I had rhinoplasty last week and now my nose whistles when I breathe. I sound like darth vader. I looked it up, and I found out that septal perferations can cause this, so now I'm worried.
Is it common in the early healing stages or is it most likely permanent? My rhinoplasty was cosmetic only, and I went to a well known rhinoplasty specialist, but I know mistakes do happen. I will ask about it on my next appoitment but would love some peace of mind for now.
Whistling Nose After Rhinoplasty...Is it Temporary or Permanent?
Whistling can be caused from edema in the nose
