Patients may experience slight discomfort for the first couple of days after their procedure but you will be given a prescription for pain medication to help you with this. You may also have been given antibiotics and saline nose spray that should be used to your surgeons instructions too. Your nose will feel swollen and you may find nasal breathing a little difficult until the initial swelling goes down. Some patients can experience bruising on their face which will fade over time and can be covered with make-up a few days after the procedure. The splint will be removed between the 7th and 10th day post procedure and at this stage, you may feel comfortable to return to the majority of your everyday.
At The Private Clinic, we provide our patients with a comprehensive post-operative care service as part of your aftercare package. It is essential that you attend the scheduled post-operative appointments with the clinic nurses and surgeons.
