Is rhinoplasty a painful operation?

Is rhinoplasty a painful operation?

Although we use very fine instruments during the operation, rhinoplasty may be fearsome, because there is a process of breaking the nose. After the operation, there is a  period of discomfort, but pain is not a popular symptom as expected. The pain thresholds, consequently the perception of pain differ for each patient.  However, in general, the scale for pain in rhinoplasty is about 3/10 which is low and resolves in max 3 days. Pain in rhinoplasty may be described as being sometimes slightly throbbing with a stuffy nose and accompanying headache. It can be easily managed by ice packs and simple analgesics (pain relievers).
