Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is one of the cosmetic procedures we offer at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery. We usually perform this procedure to improve the shape of the nose and correct a disfigured nose following an accident, congenital disabilities or previous unsuccessful surgery. If you’re hoping to speed up your recovery after rhinoplasty, here are just a few general tips you can follow.
Keep Your Head Elevated
Keeping your head elevated is one way to speed up your healing process. You could place two or three pillows below your head whenever you sleep. Doing this during the first few days following your surgery can prevent any unnecessary issues from occurring.
Follow All Post-Operative Instructions
Our rhinoplasty doctor and team in the Sacramento, CA area will provide you with some instructions to follow after your surgery, such as taking time off from work or attending post-operative appointments. Make sure you follow these instructions to the letter so that you can enjoy the best results possible.
Take Time Off
Another way to speed up your recovery after a nose job is to take a set amount of time off from work to recover. Trying to go back to work or obligations too soon following rhinoplasty may extend your recovery period and result in a less-than-stellar outcome.
Avoid Strenuous Exercise
If you have a busy schedule, be prepared to take it easy following your surgery. This means you should avoid demanding activities such as engaging in strenuous exercise or playing sports. Some doctors recommend going for a light walk to increases circulation in the treatment area.
Eat a Nutritious Diet
Make sure to consume a nutritious diet to speed up your recovery after your rhinoplasty procedure.
