I keep yawning...and find it hard to control it. I am 2 weeks post op. Sometimes when I yawn, it makes me flare my nostrils which I can't control, and it strains it abit. When the flaring subsides...I feel slight pressure of the nose. No pain, just pressure feeling. I am worried about this, as controlling it is difficult and I am worried it will do damage. :(

Go ahead and yawn after Rhinoplasty
Yawning, smilingg, laughing and similar facial movements will not damage your nose after a Rhinoplasty.

Yawning should cause no problems. You are still early in the post op period and these symptoms should subside. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
