Sore throat after rhinoplasty

Dear jdel,
  • It is tough to tell why your throat is sore, it could just be from chronic mouth breathing after your surgery until you heal
  • You can try salt water gargles to ease the discomfort
  • Throat pain usually heals pretty quickly
  • If you have more concerns, I would suggest visiting your surgeon for a check up
