Is it normal to feel depressed and let down following rhinoplasty?
If you are feeling depressed after your rhinoplasty, you are not alone. In fact, this is quite normal! Many patients have periods of let down immediately after cosmetic surgery procedures. They begin to second guess and question themselves whether they made the right decision.
They begin to feel that, with all the bruising and swelling, they look less attractive than before. As the swelling and bruising subsides and you’re on the road to recovery, these negative thoughts will dissipate very quickly. If you feel “let down”, understanding that this is a normal part of the healing process may help you to deal with it more effectively. However, if your sadness continues to be present weeks after your surgery, you must talk to your surgeon.
