Things to do after rhinoplasty;
Rhinoplasty has become one of the popular surgeries of recent times. It is possible to create a popular nose compatible with the face with rhinoplasty. In this surgery, which takes 1 or 2 hours, the patient’s trust and belief in his doctor is the first condition for a successful operation. First of all, the aim of rhinoplasty should be to preserve the basic functions of the nose. During the operation, if necessary, other procedures related to the nose can be performed. The basic condition for the operation is to be 18 years old. Because the bone and cartilage development of our nose needs to be completed. You and your doctor should decide on the procedure to be done and the new nose that will be formed. First of all, never forget that protecting the functional health of your nose is in the first place.
ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR!
It is normal for a light red liquid to come out of your nose during the first week after your surgery. Likewise, it is natural to have bruises on your face and around your eyes. To prevent these swellings and bruises, you can lie down with your head up. Do not put ice on your face unless your doctor tells you to. You can take a shower after 48 hours by consulting your doctor. Make sure the water is not hot. You can take a shower with warm water. You can use the spray given to you while cleaning your nose. Then you can lubricate the seams with the cream given by your doctor. Do not clean the bottom of your nose with a cotton swab without telling your doctor. Pieces of blood and dry crusts may come from your nose 6-8 weeks after the operation. As blood and dry crust come, you can use the cream and spray given to you.
DON’T LOOK AT YOUR SURROUNDINGS!
After the surgery, your sense of smell may not be the same for 6-12 weeks. This situation may return to normal on its own. You can still do a sniffing exercise with ground dry coffee 1-2 times a day. Excess skin, called the back of the nose, may occur where the nasal bone is removed. Consult your doctor for the necessary massage for this situation. Hammam, sauna and excessive sun are not recommended for 3 months after surgery. Likewise, avoid taking hard blows. Keep in mind that there may be changes in the shape of your nose. But your nose will take its natural state after 6 months. In this process, never be affected by the comments made by your environment. Do not forget that a sound psychology is among the sine qua non of the recovery period after surgery. Nose aesthetic surgery is performed with two methods, open and closed. The method to be used is determined by the doctor according to the physiological structure of the patient. If the nasal tip or cartilage structure is problematic, open surgery is preferred for better results. The closed method is preferred if there is no problem in the nasal tip and cartilage tissue of the patient.
The results of nose surgery are permanent. As the person’s facial structure changes, the nose structure will also change as he gets older. As a result of this change, the nasal cartilages may grow a little. But it never returns to the pre-operative state. Today, thanks to the developing modern medicine, rhinoplasty operations are carried out without any problems.
