Hi everyone! First, let me introduce myself. My name is Sandy and I've lurked her for quite a while, but am just now getting around to posting. I've always had difficutly breathing through my nose and the fact that I've also hated the look of it just added to my resentment towards it. I got up the courage to see the Dr. earlier this week and I do infact have a badly deviated septum. I asked him about doing rhinoplasty at the same time and he said no problem. I also have a very weak chin and asked about a chin implant. We decided on one and also a little lipo underneath my chin. So now to my question. Everyone that I've talked to that has had or knows someone who has had septoplasty, rhinoplasty or a combinition of the both done says that it's one of the worst, most painful things they've ever gone through. It's still not going to change my decision to have it done, but I'd just like to hear some more first hand experience on it. Please share your how it was for you.

Thanks so much!

Sandy :)
Wow, I just realized that you posted in 2003. So by now you should have had the Septo-rhinoplasty procedure by now. If so, I want you to tell me, how was the procedure for you. Was the procedure as painful as everybody says it would be?

Also, did you get general anesthesia too? I myself, have a deviated septum and I would like to get a nose job at the same time too, however, my surgery was delayed because I needed a medical clearance and close to my surgery date I started getting chest pains. So I canceled until I go through some heart tests like an echo-cardiogram etc...

But even once all of that is done, and I get my medical clearance to go ahead with surgery under general anesthesia, I will be looking for a new rhinoplasty doctor that uses the BIS monitor. This is a new device for surgeons to use during general anesthesia surgery to let the surgeon know if a patients anesthesia has worn off and the patient if feeling every nip and cut. Therefore leading the surgeon to administer more anesthesia.

So I must know, if you had your Septo-rhinoplasty procedure done as yet and if so, was it as painful as everybody told you it was?

Hi! I'm sorry, but I'm not going to be very helpful. I registered in 2003, but I actually just posted my question on 2/25/2004. I'm hoping to get the same answers as you. Hopefully someone who's had it done will answer us. If by chance we don't get any answers, I'll be sure to post back here once mine is done. I'm hoping to have it done within the next month, after I hear from my insurance co.

Good luck!
I am post-op 8 days from the surgery. It wasn't painful at all.. I have yet to feel pain and I haven't needed any painkillers. It is a bit uncomfortable as there is a lot of swelling though most of it goes down quickly
