Facial Pain After Septoplasty
Thank you for your question. Some facial pain, particularly around the upper front teeth, is expected after surgery and will resolve with time. However, there is a risk of sinus infection after nasal airway surgery which can present with facial pain. I recommend reaching out to your surgeon to discuss your concerns and determine best next steps. Hope that helps, I hope you feel better soon!
