Delayed Pain after Rhinoplasty.. Is this Normal?
Thank you for your question.It is important for you to consult with your surgeon about any questions or concerns you may have seeing as they know your medical history, anatomy and surgery best but this can be common and shouldn’t be anything to worry about, the nerves are probably beginning to regrow at this time and this is why you are experiencing these sensations now. Just keep an eye on it and contact your surgeon if the pain gets worse over time.
Best of luck in your recovery!
