Question

My nose has always caused me to be unconfident with my image, it's slightly too big.

How painful is the nose surgery, how long does it take and how painful is the recovery?

Answer

Patient experience regarding rhinoplasty ranges from no pain at all, discomfort, headache type congestion of the sinuses, and painful around the sides of the nose for the first few days.

The intervention takes approximately an hour and a half, and it is usually a day case treatment under general anaesthetic.

Return to work and socialising is typically at two weeks, return to exercise closer to 3.
