Rhinoplasty surgery can boost a patient’s self-esteem and quality of life. Because this procedure involves a degree of healing afterwards, patients must carefully adhere to their surgeon’s nasal surgery recovery instructions.
It will be important for you to keep pressure off of your nose during nasal surgery recovery, as pressure could interfere with the healing of your nasal tissues. As part of this, do your best not to blow your nose for a week following the procedure. Sleep on your back whenever possible. Additionally, for up to six weeks, it will be necessary to avoid participating in physically strenuous activities like exercise and sports.
