Post-operative care for rhinoplasty is also important!

Ice-pack applying right after the surgery is helpful to reduce swelling.
After the surgery, swelling and bruises are shown differently in individuals. Avoid putting down your head or lying faced down
while sleeping. It is also helpful to support your back and neck with 2-3 soft pillows for reducing swelling or pain when sleeping.
You may have nosebleeds for initial 1-2 days from the surgery day. If nose-bleeding, please wipe out with clean tissues.
After the surgery, your nose needs to be fixed with taping till the nose settles down. (Do not take off the tapes voluntarily.)
After the surgery, drinking alcohol and smoking should be avoided for at least 3 weeks because they make scar healing prolonged.
After the surgery, blowing your nose should be avoided and wearing glasses or sunglasses should not be done for a month.
Major swelling will almost go away after a week from nose bridge while minor swelling will still remain on glabellas and nose tip.
These swelling will be shown differently and recovered slowly according to individuals.
Going for sauna or hot spring should be avoided for 3 weeks.

Every patient has the swelling after the surgery but there will be differences depending on individual constitution
