Recovery After Aesthetics

The recovery process after rhinoplasty surgery is made a subject of curiosity by people who have not yet gone under the knife as well as those who have undergone this surgery, but want to have in-depth information about the post-aesthetic operation process. The recovery process of nose surgery is a process that is known to require a short or long-term recovery period depending on the type of operation.

If the nose surgery was performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, as most patients are surprised, the initial recovery process after the operation is quite short. Patients usually feel a slight pain and soreness at the surgical site after rhinoplasty surgery. In addition, some patients also complain of a swollen face, nasal congestion caused by the loss of functionality of the nasal tissues, and bruising that occurs on the face. Rhinoplasty, which is a safe and so trouble-free type of surgery, that is, the recovery process after nose surgery is generally carried out by going through a number of stages.

The 7-Day Recovery Process After Nose Surgery

The 7-day recovery process after nasal bone surgery starts from the moment you first open your eyes in the postoperative waking room. In this process immediately after the specialist plastic surgeon performs the operation, there will be a splint on your nose and a tampon inside your nose.

Since tampon application is not required in some rhinoplasty operations, a special pad is placed under the nostrils to collect minor bleeding that may occur in the first hours after surgery and at night. Due to these pads, it is normal to feel sinus congestion and a slight pressure around the nose. If you are experiencing intense pain, it is possible to use pain medication to reduce the pain felt if it is needed. In addition, it is possible to speed up the healing process by following the recommendations of the doctor to reduce the swelling in the nose and relieve the pressure.

You may have a certain weakness after nose surgery. For this reason, it is recommended to avoid intense physical activity. The first two days after surgery may be a little difficult, but in general it is not very painful. If you feel pain, you can use pain medication to reduce this pain. Breathing through your mouth can make it difficult to sleep, so you may have difficulty falling asleep in a 2-day period. If you have a tampon in your nose, it is usually 2 after the operation. the tampon needs to be removed on the day. For this, you can go to your doctor, where you are examined.

Cleaning After Nose Surgery

Decontamination procedures after rhinoplasty surgery are also among the procedures that you can perform as recommended by your doctor. Usually, after the removal of the tampon and splint, nasal cleaning and body cleaning can be performed without problems. However, it is recommended to avoid acting suddenly and harshly when cleaning your nose. In addition, since the healing process of nose surgery continues after the first 5 days, you should avoid physical blows whenever possible and take care not to injure your nose.
