Does Rhinoplasty Hurt?

May 10, 2011 - admin


Every year, thousands of people who are unhappy with the size, shape or projection of their nose, seek to change its appearance through rhinoplasty. While most patients request rhinoplasty to refine the aesthetic appearance of their nose, others may require nose surgery to correct breathing difficulties, accidental damage or droopiness due to aging.

It is important for patients considering nose surgery to have realistic expectations of what rhinoplasty can achieve, before deciding to go ahead with the procedure.

Various Stages

Rhinoplasty is either performed under a combination of local anaesthesia and sedation, or under general anaesthesia. Incisions are usually made from inside the nose, to ensure that the patient does not have any visible scars. As the patient is under anaesthesia for the duration of the nose surgery, they usually feel no sensation as the ENT surgeon performs the procedure. At the most, patients may experience a mild ‘tugging’ sensation, alongside slight discomfort, associated with bruising.  In most cases, nose surgery is an outpatient procedure, and does not require an overnight stay at the clinic.

Post-rhinoplasty, a small splint is usually placed on a patient’s nose for some time, to protect it. During this period, the patient may experience some bruising, swelling and discomfort, around the eye area, for which analgesia may be prescribed. After it is determined that the nose has healed sufficiently, the ENT surgeon will remove the splint and nasal packing (if used) and sutures (if required). Most people report only minor discomfort during this process.

After the cast is removed, the patient may experience slight stiffness in the upper nose as the swelling moves downwards, which could last for a few hours. About 80 percent of swelling and all of the bruising, disappear within the first three weeks of rhinoplasty, in most cases. The remaining swelling slowly fades away, over the following months. If a patient has any concerns regarding post-rhinoplasty discomfort, they should consult with their ENT surgeon.

    What does this mean? In the practical sense, not much… but in the legal world,
    it works as a sort of sleight-of-hand that protects Uber in the event of a lawsuit.
    You see, under the law, employers are considered to be more
    responsible for the actions of their employees than they are for the actions
    of their independent contractors.
    Uber has used this argument to protect itself against third party plaintiffs many times, including in a lawsuit filed
    by the family of a young girl who was killed by an Uber driver while crossing the street.
    If they can use that defense against an innocent child,
    you can bet they’ll use it against you!
    However, this issue is still a legally hazy one. Strong legal precedent has not yet
    been established on this particular question, and different courts have come to
    different conclusions. Right now, the status quo seems to be that
    Uber drivers are considered employees in some areas,
    and independent contractors in others.
    Regardless, you can be certain that if you were hit by an Uber driver, the company will do what it can to avoid having to pay you a
    dime. In these situations, a personal injury attorney is more
    important than ever, and one with experiences in Uber cases is a definite plus.
    If you find yourself in an Uber accident, you should take the same steps that you should take
    after any automobile accident.
    These steps include protecting your own safety by getting out of the line of immediate danger and calling 911 if anyone has been injured, remaining
    at the scene and sharing insurance information with any other drivers
    who were involved, calling the police if the accident is
    serious, and reporting it to your insurance company.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my
    end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
