Studying the following information about postoperative rhinoplasty is recommended to dear patients to expedite postoperative recovery.

After Rhinoplasty Surgery

  • Apply ice compresses to the cheeks, nose, and eyes for 12 hours after surgery. (Note: Do not press the ice compress on the mold).
  • Swelling and bruising resolve after 2 to 3 weeks after surgery, so don’t worry.
  • Eat soft foods such as compote, juice, soup and porridge in the early hours after surgery. From the next morning, you can eat any other food except hard foods such as teapots, apples, cherries, carrots, etc.
  • Use only soft, very gentle toothbrushes to brush.
  • Be sure to sneeze with an open mouth.
  • Avoid mold soaking while washing face. Use showerheads to wash your head; bathing is provided as long as the nose does not get wet.
  • Rinse your nose with serum or drops or normal saline spray 24 hours after the procedure. After 24 hours of surgery, apply oily nasal suture ointment and rinse with nasal saline 3 to 4 times daily.
  • Due to laryngeal intubation during anesthesia, some postoperative burning and throat pain is normal. Use of soft and starchy foods is helpful to improve sore throat.
  • If you feel pain, you can use painkillers after surgery.
  • Partial discharge is normal within the first 3 days after nasal surgery. Contact a physician immediately if there is significant bleeding.
  • Antibiotic medication should be used after discharge from hospital and upon arrival at home.
  • Do not use alcohol because it dilates the veins and increases the risk of bleeding.
  • Avoid using sunglasses on the nose bridge for at least 4 weeks. The use of contact lenses is no hindrance.
  • Avoid fining for up to 3 weeks, as it may dislodge internal sutures or tear the nasal mucosa.
  • After removing the nose pattern, you can gently clean your nose with a mild soap.After removing molds and stitches, the nose is glued. Change the nose glue once or twice a day.
  • Avoid prolonged social activity and long phone calls for at least 10-14 days.
  • Avoid laughter.
  • Avoid exercise in the first two weeks after surgery. After two weeks you can start walking at a slower pace. After a month you can do aerobics, swimming and bodybuilding. Avoid exercises that can hit your nose for up to 6 months.
  • If you have any particular problems, contact Dr. Sharafian’s office.
