Pressure in nose after septoplasty
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice. The response to the question does not constitute a doctor patient relationship or formal advice.
Pressure and Nasal Obstruction After Septoplasty
After septoplasty, the inside of the nose is swollen and contains dried blood and crusts. It is normal to feel some pressure from the blockage, particularly if stents were placed inside the nose. It is also normal for the breathing to feel worse initially while the tissue heals. Your surgeon knows the most about your specific procedure and is the best person to help you with your post-operative questions.
Best wishes for your recovery!
