Postoperative care

Postoperative care

On the first night after the operation, you may feel a little sluggish and maybe drunk from the effect of general anesthesia, but this is a short-term condition due to the effect of drugs and is temporary. Post-operative pain is not expected and you will have almost no pain. We usually ask you to spend the first night in the hospital and in this process, early cold compresses are very important and effective in terms of edema. If everything is fine after the first night, you will be discharged from the hospital with your prescription. You will be told in detail how to use your medicines at home. Cold compress (ice application) for the first 48 hours is a situation that we care very much. You can take a shower, brush your teeth and eat and drink almost anything you want the day after surgery. In the first week, we care about avoiding highly salty and acidic foods and consuming edema-dissolving foods such as green tea. After the 2nd day, walking for at least half an hour a day will be beneficial in terms of reducing edema. At the end of the 1st week, our first check is made, your splint and bandages are removed and your nose is cleaned. You are taught in detail how to massage the nose and your new bandages are put on. You can usually return to your work life after the 1st week, but the ideal is to return after the 2nd week. After the 7th day, almost everything is free. The most important thing to watch out for is to avoid blows to your nose. At the end of the 2nd week, your second control is done and the bandages are completely removed. Since the recovery is completed at the end of the 2nd week, there is no special situation that you need to pay attention to except protecting your nose from impacts.


After routine checks are made in the 1st and 6th month, long-term checks 1.2. and 5th years. Except for the first week, we perform our controls online for our patients coming from abroad or abroad. You can contact us for detailed and personalized information.
