After Rhinoplasty Care Instructions

Post-operative home care instructions after rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery by Dr. Edgar Eduardo Santos from Tijuana Rhinoplasty.
 
TIJUANA, Mexico - April 3, 2021 - PRLog -- The following is a list of general instructions offered by Dr. Edgar Eduardo Santos, for your care following rhinoplasty surgery at Tijuana Rhinoplasty.

There will be a mild to moderate amount of pain and discomfort associated with the surgery. This should be easily controlled with oral medications. Tylenol with codeine (or equivalent if allergy to codeine exists) is generally always sufficient for pain control. The discomfort and pain should begin to decrease within 72 hours after surgery.

Bruising and swelling are not unusual after the surgery. These symptoms often worsen on the second day following surgery and then steadily improve thereafter; this is normal. The amount of bruising that occurs varies significantly from one person to the next.

Some bloody nasal discharge is to be expected after any nasal surgery. A small "mustache" type gauze dressing will be placed beneath your nose after your surgery. During the first 24-48 hours, this absorbent dressing often needs to be changed 10-20 times; this is to be expected.

Often at the completion of the surgery a light tape and plastic nasal dressing is placed on the outside of the nose, and plastic splints are placed on the inside of the nose.

Make arrangements to have someone drive you to, and from, your surgery. Having someone stay with you on at least the first night after your surgery is highly recommended.

You should squirt saline mist spray (e.g. salinex, ocean spray) and then place a small dab of either vaseline or antibiotic ointment (e.g. polytopic or bacitracin) inside your nose 4 to 6 times a day, beginning on the first day after surgery. This will minimize nasal crusting and make you feel more comfortable.

Do not take any aspirin or any anti-inflammatory compounds for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your surgery unless you first discuss it with your surgeon.

If you are a smoker, you should not smoke for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery and 2 weeks after surgery. Smoking and chewing tobacco inhibit your circulation and can significantly compromise your surgical outcome.
