Answers to post Rhinoplasty questions in Charlotte
Here are some post Rhinoplasty questions in Charlotte:
I’m told that I should give up smoking, aspirin and ibuprofen two weeks before surgery. Should I also stay away from them during the recovery period?
Absolutely. While you’re at it, stay away from vitamin E supplements and any herbal supplements that might cause blood thinning. Cut back on salt in your diet while you’re at it.
What’s the worst part about the post-rhinoplasty period?
The first few days. After this, the pain lessens. Take your pain medication and antibiotics, and be sure to eat enough — healing burns calories. Drink plenty of fluids and get lots of sleep. While you’re sleeping, keep your head and torso elevated to reduce the swelling.
Should I use cold packs?
Those might or might not be a good idea in your case. Ask your surgeon.
I’m told I shouldn’t do anything that would raise the blood pressure in my head. What sort of things would do that?
Bending over, hard exercise and lifitng anything heavier than about seven pounds will all raise the blood pressure in your head.
I’m told I shouldn’t sneeze or blow my nose during the recovery period. How exactly am I supposed to keep from doing that?
The best way is to avoid people and wash your hands often. Colds and flu come from other people, and from germs that get on your hands and get transferred to your face. Also, stay away from any allergens you might have.
