A nose job, or rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the nose is reconstructed or corrected. Individuals who undergo rhinoplasty may do so for several reasons. It can be for cosmetic purposes so that the nose will be more aesthetically pleasing to the patient or it can be done to help a damaged nose gain back its original function. At The Plastic Surgery Center in Bradenton and Sarasota, our staff can explain what to expect following a rhinoplasty procedure as well as what you can do to help the healing process.
There are several factors to expect after completing the surgery. After the procedure, you will be professionally advised to avoid excessive exercise and activities for a recommended period of time. This is to allow your nose the greatest safety and relaxation as it gets back to normal. Expect to take it easy for a while to speed up your healing. You can also expect to wear a nasal splint for about five to seven days. It is also important to point out that there may be a stuffy feeling in your nose after you receive your nose job. This nasal stuffiness is temporary and will improve over time as you heal.
