After your nasal tip rhinoplasty to reshape the tip of your nose, your nasal tissues will need some time to heal and settle into their new position. You may be concerned about nostril airflow during your nasal tip surgery recovery.
Rhinoplasty, like any surgery, creates some degree of temporary swelling in the nasal tissues. This swelling can cause a feeling of partial airflow blockage. Happily, this congested feeling will only last as long as the swelling does during your nasal tip surgery recovery. Afterwards, the airflow through the nostrils should be comfortable and easy.
