Process After Rhinoplasty Surgery
Patients generally do not have pain after surgery; However, some patients may experience minor pain. In this process, the patient is treated with painkillers.
Postoperative nasal congestion is observed in patients for up to two days. Due to nasal congestion, patients start to breathe through their mouths, which causes a constant dryness in the patient's throat. Plenty of liquid food supplements should be given so that the dryness of the throat does not disturb the patients.
It is necessary not to get out of bed for about 6 hours. The reason for this is the possibility of dizziness and blackout due to the fact that the effect of the anesthesia has not passed.
You should sleep on high pillows for approximately 15 days, avoid tilting your head and lie flat as much as possible while lying down.
In open surgery, stitches are placed on the tip of the nose. These sutures are removed under the control of the surgeon 1 week after the operation. After this stage, a tape is attached to your nose and you can remove the tape yourself after 1 week.
Right after the nose surgery is over, the patient should sleep as upright as possible, supporting his head with a pillow for the first 2 nights. With this application, the risk of edema formation in the patient is minimized.
Glasses may not be used during the first 4 or 6 months. Avoiding ball activities such as basketball, volleyball, and football will benefit the patient. Since there is a great risk in the nose as a result of a blow to the nose of the patient, the patient should definitely take this warning into account.
