Edema after rhinoplasty worries all patients,who had plastic nose surgery. But it is worthwhile to know that edema is, in fact, a normal phenomenon. In some patients, it is more pronounced, others less. The degree of severity of edema directly depends on the individual characteristics of the patient's body.

Edema of the nose can be observed even on the operating table, which makes the plastic surgeon's work a little more difficult.

Such a swelling is called primary. A plastic surgeon with high qualifications knows exactly how to deal with edema and how to navigate in swollen tissues.

After the operation is completed, the plasticThe surgeon imposes a plaster bandage or a special tire, restraining the edema and fixing the shape of the nose. Applying gypsum is an important step in rhinoplasty. If there is no gypsum, the swelling can reach a large size.

How much does the edema go after rhinoplasty?

  • About 10 days after the operation, primary edema is observed. And after 5 days it begins to subside and its severity decreases.
  • In 10 days, and maybe a little earlier, the surgeonremoves plaster bandage. After that, the swelling may manifest itself, but this is again a normal phenomenon. The fact is that immediately after the operation he restrained himself with gypsum and was not so noticeable.

But friends and relatives of the patient, most likely notwill remember how wide the nose was. It has already been repeatedly written and said that a person does not remember the accents of the person, but remembers it entirely. As admitted by patients who have made rhinoplasty, their acquaintances who did not know about this, did not notice any changes in appearance.

In general, after the removal of gypsum, the swelling is retained induring 1-1, 5 months. It is called secondary edema and causes patient anxiety. Although, the secondary edema is not expressed as much as the primary one and manifests itself in a small compaction of the tissues and a slight extension of the tip and back. During this period it is impossible to evaluate the result of rhinoplasty. Because the swelling hides this result.

During this period, patients develop weightquestions and experiences. Patients take different methods to combat swelling, but not always successfully. The result can be temporary or completely invisible.

After 2 months after the operation, there comes a time of residual edema, which is almost invisible to others.

What does the patient need to know after rhinoplasty?

No drugs can accelerateprocess of convergence of edema. A competent rhinoplasty perfectly understands that edema is a physiological phenomenon. The surgeon will necessarily explain to the patient that it is not necessary to be afraid of an edema and all that happens to him after rhinoplasty is quite normal.
