Caution after surgery
Medication and Ointment.
· Clinics will prescribe medicines mostly consisting of antibiotics, digestive medicine, and antiphlogistics. Additional costs for medication may be required.
· In case of having any allergies or side effects after taking medications, please stop taking and contact us immediately.
Right After the Operation
· A nasal packing post-operation will be removed the day after when you visit the clinic for treatment.
· It may be usual to have bleeding for 3 days after the surgery. The gauze underneath the nose can be changed by yourself time to time.
· Do not use a cotton swab, a tissue, or a hand to pick your nose or picking the scab inside the nose to prevent infection for the first 3 months.
· You may face nasal congestion due to the swelling and healing process.
· The tape and nasal splint support the implant not only from moving but also settling the designed nose and controlling bleeding. It will be removed with stitches at the same time when you visit the clinic. Please do not take it out.
· Please do contact us immediately if you have pain accompanied by heat or getting worse.
Swelling, pain, or senses (Individual symptoms may vary)
· Swelling or puffiness may vary depends on each area such as the left or the right side of the nose, nasal bridge, and nasal tip. It might seem a bit curved or feel awkward during the wound healing process.
· In case of using an implant, as it is located under the layer of periosteum covering nasal bone, you might have a bruise, swelling around the eyes, or blood trapped underneath the conjunctiva.
· Bruises may fade away in about 2 weeks.
· It will take 1~2 weeks for severe swelling to be reduced around the nasal bridge. It will take longer for swelling around glabella and nasal tip since the skin on those areas are thicker. It may take around 6 months to be natural.
· We recommend you to use an ice pack for the first 3days and warm packs(not too hot) after all for 2weeks for quick recovery. Make sure to do around eyes and cheeks without pressing your nose.
Enhanced recovery post-operation
· It is possible to wash your face and put on makeup the day after the stitches are removed. Please avoid water going inside of the nose.
· You may shower on the 3rd day of the operation avoiding water goes directly to the incision. It is possible to put your head down to wash your hair after a week.
· Light walking is recommended to encourage healing. However high-impact activities (such as swimming, gym, climbing), strenuous exercise, sauna, Korean dry sauna must be avoided for a week since it delays recovery.
· Please avoid wearing sunglasses or glasses for a month.
· It is helpful to reduce swelling if you use 2 pillows when you sleep to put your face a bit elevated. Avoid sleeping on the side or stomach for the first 2 weeks.
· Smoking and drinking are strictly prohibited for a month after the surgery since they may cause infection and delay wound healing.
· Using spray type of any naphazoline hydrochloride is strictly prohibited for a month.
