- Opioid Prescribing After Rhinoplasty
Opioid Prescribing After Rhinoplasty
Bottom Line: A review of 173 patients who had rhinoplasty reports that nearly all were prescribed opioids (an average of 28 pills per patient) in addition to acetaminophen and refills were exceedingly rare, with some patients (11.3 percent) not even filling their initial narcotic prescription. Study results suggest patients experienced less pain than was expected, although the optimal number of tablets to manage postoperative pain from rhinoplasty is unclear.
