Top UK Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Julian Rowe-Jones on: How will you feel after rhinoplasty?
Worries after rhinoplasty
A lot of patients are worried about how they might feel after rhinoplasty and we put a lot of effort and time into trying to describe what it’s like and in reassuring the patient that is not what they think it might be.
A team standing by
I work really closely with my anaesthetist who’s a critical part of a team, so that when you wake up, all the painkillers you need are already in your system. Patients also worry they might feel sick and again we put the anti sickness drugs into your system, so they’re already working before you wake up.
A gentle wake up
We organise a gentle wake up from the anaesthetic too, so that you don’t panic and that you’re not scared and the nurses are very good. The nurses are there with you as you wake up holding your hand and reassuring you, so it’s not nearly as bad as you might think. It always amazes me that patients very rarely have pain after rhinoplasty and perhaps a lot of that has to do with the fact that, not only are the drugs in the system, but they know what to expect because we’ve concentrated so hard on it beforehand.

A Rhinoplasty Testimonial
I just wanted to say it’s day two after my surgery, I have no idea what my nose looks like and even with the swelling the function of my nose has improved massively. I am really grateful and want to thank everyone for making this happen. On the day of the surgery I was so nervous, Mr Rowe-Jones was amazing!
Immediately making me feel at ease and that everything I had discussed with him was under control. Truly an amazing surgeon, and with a genuine care for his patients that goes such a long way, no wonder he has such a fantastic reputation. All this would not have happened without his team behind him so thanks to all again!
