What to do after a nose job?

Preparing for what to do after a nose job

Before you actually get your Charlotte nose job, you should already know what to do after a nose job in order to have a smooth recovery with a minimum of discomfort and a successful outcome. You’ve already put a lot of your own money and time into having this done — it’s worth the extra effort to make sure it comes out right.


Not only should you know what to do after a nose job, you should have already taken the first steps. These include setting aside time at home, away from others, until you’ve recuperated enough to go out in public. Also, if you wear glasses, you should have some prescription contacts handy. Make sure there’s someone to drive you home after the surgery.


Self-care after rhinoplasty

For the first few days, you’ll be in a lot of pain. You should take the painkillers your doctor prescribes, and stay away from aspirin or ibuprofen. Try to eat something even if you don’t feel like it, but stay away from salty foods. Don’t bend over or exercise too hard, don’t wear anything that has to be pulled over your face, and wash your hands often to avoid the risk of catching a cold. Try to sleep with your head elevated to reduce swelling, and don’t worry too much about your looks until the swelling is down.
