A successful result of rhinoplasty is only possible if the patient complies with the strict rules of the rehabilitation period. Discipline and exact adherence to the recommendations of a plastic surgeon will help to create the form of the nose that you dreamed about.
We draw your attention to the fact that the regime for the postoperative period is determined individually - as well as the surgical procedure. Therefore, only the observing surgeon recommends the most effective methods of recovery after rhinoplasty.
The entire postoperative period is dangerous because of cartilage deformation due to patient's violations of the rules of care. It is worth to follow simple rules, so that the tissues would heal quickly and acquire the ideal shapes of the nose fast.
Even the lightest frame can lead to deformation of the cartilage, so plastic surgeons recommend wearing glasses in 12 weeks after the operation on average. The riskiest period is the period of the first 4 weeks after rhinoplasty (only lenses are allowed).
Ultraviolet sources heat the top layer of the skin. Because of this the swelling develops, which are slowing the healing of tissues. Therefore, sunbathing or going to the sauna is recommended in 3 months after rhinoplasty.
Sports loads of the easy type will not harm after 4 weeks. It is recommended to start active sports with breathing stress gradually - in 3-4 months, and ball games (football, basketball, volleyball) - after 6-8 months.
It is necessary to sleep on the back because of the gypsum, which is prone to deformation. After removing it, the plastic surgeons recommend continuing to sleep on an elevated cushion so as not to deform the cartilage and reduce swelling. You may lay on the side and belly in 2-3 weeks after the procedure.
The cartilage on the tip of the nose is fixed with surgical threads, so you can not compress your nostrils during the first 4 weeks, and you should sneeze by opening your mouth. In case of a cold, the nasal congestion should be washed with saline solution.
It is strictly forbidden to wet the gypsum and touch the nose during the first days after the operation. On the second day you can gently rinse the open part of the face without touching the bruises. After removing the gypsum, it is allowed to wash yourself with warm water with light massaging movements.
Nicotine narrows the blood vessels, thus worsening blood circulation, and inhibits the healing process. Smoking in the postoperative period can lead to the necrosis of tissues. To speed up the healing process, do not smoke a month before the surgery and 2 months after it.
In order not to increase puffiness on the face, you should postpone sex for 3 weeks after the plasty is completed.
You can not. New facial injuries are unavoidable in boxing, and they are very dangerous for the nose after rhinoplasty - a long healing period and a strong inflammatory processes will be present.
Each patient receives a detailed consultation about all the aspects of the postoperative period. If you follow the basic rules, your face will have a new look and will remain that way for the rest of your life.
