What kinds of painkillers will I be given for a revision rhinoplasty procedure?
The majority of my patients do not need ANY pain medicine. If your plastic surgeon does your revision rhinoplasty meticulously without much trauma and without packing your nose, you should not need any major pain medicine other than maybe a few Tylenols. Packing the nose is what really hurts and I do not like to routinely pack the nose after a rhinoplasty. However, I still give my patients Vicodin or Celebrex for those who are going to experience a bit more discomfort since pain is truly subjective.
