Which is the most suitable season for Rhinoplasty?

One of the questions that hangs on minds of patients who are thinking about having rhinoplasty surgery is whether it is the right season for the operation. Most of us have often heard that it is said that it is harmful to have rhinoplasty in summer among the public. Although this information is not completely accurate, there is a share of rightness. Indeed, there are a number of disadvantages of having a rhinoplasty in summer compared to the winter season. So, is there really such a thing as a suitable season to have a rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is an operation that can be performed every season. However, in terms of the postoperative process, winter and spring seasons are the seasons where rhinoplasty is more in demand. At the beginning of the difficulties that await patients in the summer season, there is a possibility of experiencing more edema and bleeding problems after surgery. There are elements that patients should pay attention to after resting for 15 days after the operation. They should not come into contact with water in any way until the plaster and splints are removed. Another thing that patients should be careful about is to protect themselves against the sun. In summer, the surgical area may change color with the effect of the sun.

This is dangerous for the healing process. To protect against this, patients should choose high-protection sunscreen and wear a hat. As we all know, it is forbidden to wear glasses for a period of two months after the rhinoplasty operation. If you have a vacation plan for the summer, you will also need to suspend it for a while. However, after the operation, you can go on vacation from the date I will give, you can go to the sea or to the pool.

After explaining all this, it should still be noted that the number of people who prefer to have rhinoplasty surgery in the summer is quite large. The reason for this is that people want to devote their annual leave to rhinoplasty and the healing process. In addition, some patients have allergies in the spring. This also creates problems after the rhinoplasty operation. In the winter months, diseases such as flu and colds can negatively affect the process.

In short, as mentioned at the very beginning, rhinoplasty is an operation that can be performed every season. Therefore, it is not possible to mention the most correct season for this operation. However, a choice can be made according to the special circumstances or demands of the patients. Although it is possible to encounter a number of problems after surgery every season, these are difficulties that will be temporarily withdrawn. Thanks to rhinoplasty surgery, you will then have a much more proportional and smooth nose and will now be able to breathe comfortably. After the bruises and swellings start to pass from the first week, a big change in the nose is seen. Although the final results vary for each patient, they are obtained as a result of a period between six months and one year.
