In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Acne after nasal surgery is actually fairly common and can be due to irritation from the manipulation of the skin, or a reaction to the dressings used afterwards. Pain and discomfort can last for weeks and sometimes months. Swelling can often make it hard to breathe but you may also have blood clots or other debris inside that need to come out. I would recommend seeing your surgeon for an exam. Good luck!
