Immediately After Your Procedure
You may have sutures inside of your nose and soft packing in the nostrils. If so, it will be removed within the first day or two at a follow-up appointment. You can also expect to have a bandage on the outside of your nose which comes off in roughly 1 week.
Your nose and facial swelling will show up in the hours proceeding your surgery and will increase for the first day or two. You may see puffy, bruised eyes that appear as if you were in a fight. Don’t worry, black eyes are expected, and they do fade in roughly 10-14 days.
Most people describe the pain as minimal, but swelling, congestion and facial pressure are notable. For this reason, you’ll be advised to keep your head and shoulders up. You won’t be permitted to bend over or lift anything heavy, and you’ll want to prop up your shoulders with plenty of pillows when resting. Keep Chapstick and drinks with straws handy to hydrate your mouth.
