Crying After Rhinoplasty

My boyfriend made me cry right after I got home from my rhinoplasty. How will this affect my outcome and what can I do to minimize damage?

Crying after rhinoplasty won't affect results

I wouldn't worry about it. Crying right after your rhinoplasty surgery shouldn't have any effect on your outcome.

Crying should not permanently effect your result. If your blood pressure was raised you may have some increased bruising.

There is no concern that crying will effect the outcome of your surgery.  Continue to follow your post-op instructions carefully to achieve the best results.

Although you may find a bit more swelling and/or bruising as a result of the crying, I would not expect it to change your final result.  Best wishes
