There’s nothing scarier than having a procedure done and thinking that your side affects aren’t normal but with a Rhinoplasty in Melbourne, Florida internal swelling is a common occurrence afterwards. 

It takes a while for intranasal swelling to resolve. Dr. Ross Clevens generally advises his patients that their breathing will often be worse for 6-8 weeks after surgery. Dr. Clevens does suggest, though, that you have your surgeon take a look inside your nose to ensure that all is well and the swelling will resolve. If really bothersome and all else looks good inside your nose, your doctor may decide to prescribe a steroid nasal inhaler to provide relief as you continue to heal. 

Although you may experience some side effects following Rhinoplasty, Dr. Clevens does everything he can in order to make you as comfortable as possible. He requires multiple post-operative visits so he knows exactly how you are doing and if you need anything. Although you may be hesitant at first to this procedure because you are unsure of the final results, Dr. Clevens uses technology to help you visualize the end product. Dr. Clevens offers computerized preview imaging that may help you to visualize your improved facial and nasal appearance with septorhinoplasty surgery.
