  • The open technique for nose jobs is effective but it may leave a scar whereas closed surgery doesn’t cause scarring on the face.
  • Closed rhinoplasty takes less time to perform whereas open rhinoplasty requires longer for surgery as well as recovery.

  • Week 2- The swelling and bruising around the eyes will subside and it will be safe to resume daily activities.
  • Week 3-4- You can perform activities like jogging, swimming, cycling, and other cardiovascular exercises.
  • Week 6- The bone and cartilage will take a stable shape and you can start working out, wearing glasses, and even blowing your nose.
  • Week 3-6- The numbness in the nose will resolve completely and your sense of smell will also improve.
  • 1 Year- The healing process will be complete and the nose’s shape will be refined.

You can speed up the healing process by listening to the doctor’s advice and taking proper care of your nose.

Recovery Tips After Rhinoplasty Surgery

Many people don’t realize this but the recovery period is the most crucial phase to get the desired results from rhinoplasty surgery. You will be able to achieve the best results by following the recovery tips below:

  • Keep the swelling in control by using an ice pack or cooling pads. This will help to alleviate the pressure and reduce puffiness in the treated area. It will also promote faster healing by constricting the blood flow to the nose.
  • Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medicines unless prescribed by your doctor. These medicines can increase the swelling and blood flow that will slow down the healing process.
  • Do not take painkillers or any other medicines without consulting with the doctor. Talk to the doctor to get a specific dosage for the pain medications to ensure that the medicine doesn’t cause any adverse reactions or hinder the healing process.
  • Take sufficient time off your work or school to focus on healing. Give your body proper rest to recover quickly. Minimize physical activities to prevent stress and injury to the nose.
  • Take a bath rather than having a shower. You will have bandages, splints, and supports in and around the nose. They should not get wet until removed by the doctor. Hence, for at least the first week, you’ll have to wash your face with a damp cloth around the bandages.
  • Eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water during the recovery. This will ensure that you are getting plenty of nutrients that promote faster healing. Drinking plenty of water will help to flush out toxins from the body, reducing the chances of infection.
  • Avoid blowing your nose unless it has healed properly and the support devices are removed. If you blow the nose while the splint is inside, it may dislodge or shift them. This can injure the nose and compromise the healing process.
  • Make sure that you stay away from peppery and spicy foods that can cause irritation in your nose, especially in the early stages of healing. Reduce your salt intake as much as possible. Excessive salt intake will increase the swelling and pressure around the surgical site. Therefore, it is best to avoid salty foods or add salt to food items.
  • Try to keep your head elevated most of the time, especially during sleeping or resting. Place a pillow under your head to keep the fluid from building up around the face.

Take post-surgery follow-up appointments with the doctor to ensure that your nose is healing properly after rhinoplasty. The doctor will monitor whether the results are closer to what you desire or not. The doctor will also check if the splints or bandages need replacement.
