Nasal Allergies, whether seasonal or year-round, generally are not a factor in rhinoplasty. If you experience nasal allergy symptoms, you should be thoroughly evaluated to see if there are any other factors that may exacerbate your breathing problems- such as a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates. If these problems are also present they should be addressed during your rhinoplasty.
Otherwise we find that in general patients have a period of reprieve from their allergy symptoms following surgery. We do counsel our patients not to blow their nose for about 2 weeks after surgery and also to keep your mouth open if you have to sneeze. Overall, there should be no reason why your allergies should affect your surgery with us.No comments
