As rhinoplasty is normally carried out under general sedation, you will be unconscious, and therefore feel no pain. However, when you wake up after the procedure, you may feel mild to moderate discomfort in your nose.

This pain may last several days after nose reshaping treatment. Although medication can address this pain, it can still feel slightly uncomfortable in the nasal area.

In most cases, the level of pain will depend on the patient's pain threshold. Some people will maintain that the pain is severe but most will be able to cope with it fairly comfortably. It's certainly not something that should deter you from going ahead with surgery.
