After rhinoplasty, you shall have a stuffy nose and feel a little discomfort. This is one of the symptoms after a normal rhinoplasty that you do not need to worry about.

In fact, the symptoms after rhinoplasty such as stuffy nose, difficulty breathing, wheezing are caused by cotton swabs being inserted inside the 2 nostrils to help absorb the discharge. That’s why for the first 4 to 5 hours, you need to breathe through your mouth.

Hence, you should be gentle, do not touch the wound. Not to mention, if you sneeze, sneeze through your mouth to avoid impact on the nose, which helps the recovery process take place smoothly and quickly.

4. Swollen, bruised eyes or nose bridge

The rhinoplasty procedure will require a small incision between the 2 nostrils so that the filler material can be inserted into the bridge of the nose. Therefore, the body also needs time to adapt to the new cartilage, so there will be some side effects and one of those is swelling.

In addition, the structural rhinoplasty technique will directly interfere with other parts of the nose such as the alar base, septum, columella, nose tips, nasal bones, … this shall make damage, injure our nose, and make our nose swollen more than usual.

During the first 7 days after surgery, the level of swelling and bruising shall be different, the bruise will gradually turn pale yellow.

You only need to relax, follow the doctor’s instructions so that the recovery process shall be quicker.

5. Enlarged nose tip

This is also a common symptom of many women. People worry when they have to remove the splint, but the nose tip is still very large, and not well-proportioned with the nose bridge. However, this is a fairly normal reaction of the body to the new material. The nose tip and nose bridge shall gradually become slimmer after about 15 days to 1 month.


1. Exposed nose bridge, redness, enlarged nose tip

These are the unusual symptoms after rhinoplasty, so you need to pay close attention. Because these symptoms cannot disappear on their own, you need to have a skilled and experienced doctor to deal with these symptoms. The cause may be due to the incorrect technique of placing the cartilage in the wrong position too close to the skin, which causes an exposed nose bridge. Because the artificial cartilage is too hard and is placed directly at the nose tip, which causes redness of the nose tip.

2. Bleeding, dark red discharge

Unusual symptoms after rhinoplasty include bleeding or dark red discharge in the nose. This symptom is caused by the wrong technique done that impacts badly on the internal structure of the nose. This causes damage to the nose, which leads to bleeding.

Another cause of excessive bleeding and pus is a wound that is not properly bandaged. Or it may be due to an infection during surgery, which is caused when the doctor does not properly perform sterilization. As a result, bacteria will easily enter the inside of the nose through an open wound that has not yet healed.
