Who is the ideal candidate for rhinoplasty?
To be a good candidate you should be physically and psychologically healthy and have realistic expectations about what it involves and what can be achieved.
The result of the operation is a nose that is fully integrated with the other features of your face, not a copy of somebody else’s. Therefore it is of utmost importance to communicate with your surgeon and agree on the expected results before the operation.
Post – Op Care
After the surgery, you will need bed rest with your head elevated higher than your chest in order to reduce swelling and minimize bleeding.
Your nose will feel congested as the surgeon will place dressings inside it to protect the wounds, and hold everything in place after the surgery. Your nose will also be splinted after surgery and the dressings will remain in place for about a week.
In order to reduce the chances of bleeding or swelling, it is advisable that you follow these precautions for a month or two after the surgery:
- Avoid exercising and other strenuous activities
- Bath, instead of showering, while the dressing is still in place to avoid wetting it
- Don’t blow your nose, despite the feeling of congestion,
- To avoid constipation, which can make you strain your facial muscles, eat a high fiber diet with lots of cereals, fruits, and vegetables
- Don’t pull clothing on or off over your head, wear shirts etc., that fasten from the front or back
- Don’t rest glasses on your nose for a month after surgery, if you need eyeglasses, try cheek rests or taping them to your forehead until your nose is healed
- Try not to smile or laugh
- Brush your teeth gently to avoid agitating the nose.
